Scarlett Johansson has been an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since she first played the role of Natasha Romanoff, also known as The Black Widow, in Iron Man 2 in 2010. Recently, the actress got quite emotional when she had to shoot her character’s death scene for the final movie in the Avengers series. Although Johansson will be back as the superhero assassin in an upcoming prequel, she confessed to Yahoo! that it wasn’t easy to shoot the scene where she was standing with Jeremy Renner on the edge of a cliff.
Scarlett Johansson, famously known for her role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, couldn’t contain her emotions when filming her character’s death scene in Avengers: Endgame. The actress admitted to feeling overwhelmingly sad about it, as it felt like a significant loss. In the scene, she fights her longtime friend and ally, Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Renner), to determine who would sacrifice their life to save the world. With eight Marvel movies under her belt, Johansson is set to star in the upcoming standalone film, Black Widow, which will explore her character’s origins in a prequel. The film will also kick off “Phase IV” of the MCU, which includes sequels for Thor (starring Natalie Portman) and Doctor Strange. It’s no surprise that the MCU continues to dominate the global market as Avengers: Endgame recently surpassed Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all time.
The actress, Scarlett Johansson, revealed her sadness over the death scene in Avengers: Endgame, describing it as an overwhelming loss. Despite the announcement of her continued involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the fact that she will once again play her character, it did not make filming the scene any easier for her, as she is a sentimental person. Watching the scene in the movie is also difficult for her, describing it as brutal, sad, and bittersweet. Scarlett will star alongside David Harbour and Rachel Weisz in the Black Widow standalone film, where her character will be portrayed as a fully realized woman in the origin story. She also showcased her engagement ring from her beau, Colin Jost, at Comic-Con in San Diego over the weekend.
