Black Widow is certainly dead after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Scarlett Johansson says. The first female Avenger debuted nine years ago in Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 and has appeared in other ensemble films, as well as her fellow heroes' solo outings.
Axar.az reports citing Screenrant that she has never headlined her own adventure, until now. The Black Widow standalone is directed by Cate Shortland and will introduce several key players in Natasha Romanoff's life that have yet to make their big screen debuts, such as David Harbour's Alexei Shostakov aka Red Guardian, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Rachel Weisz's Melina and O-T Fagbenle as Mason.
The much-anticipated film, which takes MCU's prime May release slot, will take fans back to the two years between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, allowing the movie's narrative without creating a plot hole considering Natasha's emotional death in Endgame. Despite this, many are still speculating that the standalone movie will eventually reveal the hero's not really gone, which Johansson effectively debunks.
While doing the promotional rounds for Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit, Johansson made a pit stop at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she expressed her excitement over Black Widow. She teased that it brought her closure following the character's death in Endgame, and added that while some people may still theorize Natasha is still alive somewhere, she's certain that she's really dead.
