AceShowbiz - Scarlett Johansson's solo ride as Black Widow may only begin with the upcoming standalone film, but she has appeared in eight other movies. Just as "Black Widow" is set to grace theaters in the next several months, the actress has now seemingly hinted at the end of her run as the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and Avengers member.
Speaking with ET Online at the Los Angeles premiere for her other film "Jojo Rabbit" on Tuesday, October 15, the 34-year-old actress promised that "Black Widow" would give fans a "closure." "I don't know if I can take it anymore without any closure," she cryptically said. "It's too exhausting."
Johansson also gushed about the movie, which is now in post-production. "I love it. I'm so proud of what we made," she shared. "Now we get to sprinkle the magic all over it. Get it ready for audiences."
Natasha Romanoff a.k.a. Black Widow's fate has actually been revealed in "Avengers: Endgame" after she sacrificed herself to obtain the Soul Stone on Vormir, one of the Infinity Stones needed by the Avengers to defeat Thanos.
The upcoming solo movie, meanwhile, will reportedly be set between the events of "Captain America: Civil War" and "Avengers: Infinity War", and will explore the personal adventures and journey of Black Widow.
Johansson, who is also credited as executive producer for "Black Widow", said of working on the film earlier this year, "I feel like I'm in control of the destiny of this film, which gives me a lot more peace of mind. I know her better than anybody. What was her childhood like? What is her relationship to figures of authority? This character is gritty and multi-dimensional but has a lot of trauma and has led an unexamined life. In order to operate at this elite level, she has probably had to push away a lot of stuff."
"Black Widow", directed by Cate Shortland, will open wide in U.S. theaters on May 1, 2020.
