‘Black Widow,’ according to Scarlett Johansson, illuminates society’s “imbalance.”
Scarlett Johansson, 36, plays the titular character in the new Marvel film, and she is very proud of Cate Shortland’s direction.
“The film is inherently female, partly because Cate directed it, and it definitely sheds light on an imbalance that I believe women feel inherently because of how our society has been for thousands and thousands of years!” she explained.
Scarlett also believes that the new film is about “women supporting one another.”
“The movie is about the subjugation of women, and the trauma that we have to help each other out of,” she told Glamour UK magazine.
It’s a film about women supporting one another in order to succeed.
“I don’t think you can really take that out of this movie because it’s an important part of it, and it’s also about time. I don’t want it to go away, but it’s an important part of getting away from having that (gender) be a part of it as well, because it’s a part of the problem!”
Cate Shortland hinted at a ‘Black Widow’ sequel earlier this month.
The director stated that she would like to make another film with the Marvel character.
“I think these girls still have a lot of a***s to kick,” she said.
‘Black Widow’ was supposed to be released in May of last year, but it was postponed due to coronavirus.
Despite the delay, Cate insisted she barely changed anything about the film during the lockdown.
She explained: “I think, what happened was, we were about two weeks from finishing. So, we were just fine tuning the last visual effects and everything, and then the pandemic happened, and we were all in lockdown in different houses.
“What happened was visual effect studios started closing down and the editors were sometimes editing with no sound. We had all these strange things happen.
“Post-production was probably meant to be two weeks, however, it probably took six weeks to finish the film, but not much changed story wise.”
