Tony Stark wasn’t the only Avengers killed in Avengers: Endgame. Natasha Romanoff has been in the MCU since Iron Man 2. And after a decade of trying to “wipe the red off her leger”, the tactical agent made the ultimate sacrifice. One that proved fruitful, as it helped the rest of the Avengers find a way to defeat Thanos. Still, it was sad seeing such a longstanding character go. Even if we will get a prequel film about her [hopefully] this year.
Scarlett Johansson, who has played Black Widow since Iron Man 2; dove in to her feeling about Natasha’s death in Endgame:
“I love Natasha. She’s had an incredible 10-year journey, and I felt that she was finally able to make an active choice. It seemed very in-character, that ultimate sacrifice that she makes. She’s made peace with that, and, in some ways, has known that’s her destiny all along, in a weird poetic way. When you look back on the films, that’s in there. All the films have led her to that choice – or to be able to make that choice; or for it to be a choice.”
Black Widow director Cate Shortland also added that her prequel film will honor Natasha’s death:
“That [death] gives Black Widow an added heart at the end, because it’s not wrapping [the story] up. It’s actually what you feel – it’s not a narrative thing. It’s like, how do we make the audience feel?
