Scarlett Johansson is back as Natasha Romanoff, the elusive Black Widow, in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first major superhero movie, “Black Widow,” which hit theaters in two years.
The 36-year-old actress’s independent film is released after “Captain America: Civil War” and shows that Natasha has to confront her past.
“I think it’s a film about self-forgiveness,” Johansson told Fox News as he promoted the film.
“I think it was really important to see Natasha out of her game,” she said of her character’s mindset. “Suddenly we find her in a place where she is completely alone and really not attached to anything. She has to face her demons and is really able to meet them because of Yelena.”

Meanwhile, Pugh told Fox News what she really admired about the young, educated assassin. “I really loved how, despite everything she had been through, she never came out of that experience as weak. I really appreciate that everything that came out of her mouth was very honest, and even though it sometimes it can be hard, it was right and it was very human, ”Pugh described.
“I just love the way that despite how broken she felt, she kind of came out with a boldness, and whether she was fighting with someone or arguing with someone, she got a little on them in exactly the same way. It just came completely. from her heart, “she teased.” She’s crazy. “
