BLACK WIDOW's Scarlett Johansson Didn't Want It To Be An Origin Story; Check Out Her Vanity Fair Photoshoot

Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson talks about why the movie is neither an origin story nor an espionage adventure, and we also have some must-see images from her recent Vanity Fair photoshoot...

It's thought that we'll get the first teaser trailer for Black Widow in the next few weeks ahead of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's release, but in the meantime, Scarlett Johansson has spoken to Vanity Fair about the next Marvel Studios movie.

Shedding some light on what to expect from the spinoff, the actress explained why we're not getting a full blown prequel starring the character. 
 
"I did not want it to be an origin story," she stated. "I did not want it to be an espionage story. I didn’t want it to feel superficial at all. I only wanted to do it if it actually fit where I was with that character. I had spent such a long time peeling those layers away—I felt that unless we got to something deep, then there was no reason to make it."

"Because I did my job in Endgame, and actually felt satisfied with that. I would have been happy to let that be it. So there had to be a reason to do it other than just to milk something."


Johansson added that "the film talks about a lot of tough stuff. It deals with a lot of trauma and pain." She went on to talk about her hopes that the movie will deal with "self-doubt and insecurity and shame and disappointment and regret and all that stuff too. It has many different things, it’s not just that. But there’s a lot of deep stuff, I think, that drives it."

The site has also released photos from the Avengers: Endgame star's recent photoshoot and, if you're a fan of Johansson, the you definitely need to hit the "View List" button to check them out!
