“I blew all my covers.”
The newly released Avengers: Endgame poster for Russia features Scarlett Johansson in her role as Black Widow – the Russian spy-turned SHIELD agent – prominently at the front and center of the poster.
As could be viewed in the Avengers: Endgame trailers, as well as on the released movie posters – Black Widow is back to her classic red-colored hair in the final film, opposed to her blonde look in Avengers: Infinity War – signifying that she is done hiding.
Johansson told Empire in a recent interview that Black Widow is, “fucking pissed off” in Endgame and that she is not going to stop until the job is done.
“Nat is a very pragmatic person. She’s looking for answers. She was trained, and born and bred to finish the job,” Johansson said.
Cate Shortland will be directing the Black Widow movie that is currently in pre-production, which will reportedly take place before the first Avengers film. Jac Schaeffer is penning the script and Johansson will be reprising her role as Natasha Romanoff, with English actress, Florence Pugh, cast in an unnamed role.
A standalone Black Widow movie has been in conversation with Johansson and Marvel Studios for years, with Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige vocalizing that he has wanted more female representation in the MCU.
Avengers: Endgame will mark Johansson’s seventh Avengers film to have a prominent role in since Iron Man 2 – the same exact amount of films as Chris Evans, known for his role as Captain America, and two-less from Robert Downey Jr. – both who have had three feature films starring their characters.
