Marvel Studios has been tight-lipped about Black Widow. However, Scarlett Johansson has been dropping subtle hints about the project from time-to-time. We already know that the movie is set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Black Widow will be set in Budapest and the filming has wrapped. Now, Scarlett has teased that the movie deals with a lot of trauma and pain. The actress recently sat down for a tête-à-tête with Vanity Fair and revealed interesting insights into the 2020 superhero movie. 

Although the Avengers: Endgame star shied away from revealing the plot details about the project, she confirmed it is not an origin story nor does she want it to be an espionage story. Instead, she wanted the movie to focus on the "tough stuff." She explained, "I did not want it to be an origin story. I did not want it to be an espionage story. I didn’t want it to feel superficial at all. I only wanted to do it if it actually fit where I was with that character. I had spent such a long time peeling those layers away—I felt that unless we got to something deep, then there was no reason to make it." 

Scarlett shares Black Widow movie might empower viewers. “The film talks about a lot of tough stuff. It deals with a lot of trauma and pain. And I hope this film is empowering for people because I think Natasha is a very empowering person, and an inspiring person in a lot of ways. She has overcome so much, and she’s brave. And so by elevating the genre I mean I hope that it can be both explosive and dynamic and have all that great fun stuff that goes with the genre, but I hope that we can also talk about, you know, self-doubt and insecurity and shame and disappointment and regret and all that stuff too. It has many different things, it’s not just that. But there’s a lot of deep stuff, I think, that drives it," she said.
