It takes over 10 years for Black Widow to have her own movie and now, details of the character and the blockbuster itself are leaking out, fueling fans’ curiosity.

Ever since Black Widow made her first appearance in Iron Man 2, Marvel Universe has changed in a way most of us didn’t expect. Scarlett Johansson, the actress playing the role, recently shared her thoughts on these shifts with Empire magazine.

According to Johansson, one of the most important themes of the movie is the response to the Times Up and #MeToo movements. She said it was important for director Cate Shortland to make a movie about women helping other women get through hard situations.

It seemed to her that this theme was rather obvious. She said she had been asked if Natasha was a feminist and Johansson confirmed that she was.

This is evident in what we can make out from promo materials and trailers of the movie. Black Widow movie takes place before her death in Avengers: Endgame and it offers more details into Natasha’s story, like how she became the woman we know today. It will also feature Yelena Belova, played by Florence Pugh, taking over the role of Black Widow.

While little has been made public about the plot, it’s believed that the villain of the movie is Taskmaster, a skillful fighter who can mimic combat skills and abilities of anyone.

The identity of the Taskmaster is still shrouded in mystery as Disney hasn’t revealed who played the character yet, hinting at a surprise for fans when the movie is released. Until then, audiences will have to wait for some more time to see if the movie lives up to the hype.

Black Widow is to be released on November 6, 2020.
