Helmed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow also stars Florence Pugh, David Harbour and others in key roles.
Meanwhile, recently Scarlett Johansson stated that Black Widow is her last film which witnesses Natasha Romanoff. She said, “I never feel like my work is done. I still think of new ways I could try lines from movies I shot 10 years ago. I really am happy with the work I accomplished in my last decade-plus at Marvel. I feel like I’m going out on a high note with a movie I’m incredibly proud of. I feel like my work with Natasha is complete, if that is such a thing,” reports Screenrant.
