Black Widow finally revealed a tribute to Natasha Romanoff after her death in Endgame, and it was Scarlett Johansson who decided what it should be.
Warning: this post contains spoilers for Black widow
Scarlett Johansson knew exactly where Natasha’s grave should be Black widow. After several COVID-related delays and even more years of fans asking for it, Natasha Romanoff’s first (and probably only) solo adventure in the MCU has arrived. Black widow It debuted last weekend, more than a year after its premiere was expected. The film, which scored the best opening weekend of the pandemic, does not focus on Natasha’s origin story, but rather explores the adventure that followed after Captain America: Civil War, when he revisited his murderous roots.
Even before Black widow released, it brought with it a sense of loss. Natasha sacrificed herself in Avengers Endgame, thus closing the door to any future story possibilities for the character. A common complaint directed at Endgame is that it does not show any kind of monument to Natasha. Black widow he tries to rectify this by showing his grave, which is a simple headstone in an Ohio cemetery. His sister Yelena (Florence Pugh) visits him during the Black widow end credits scene.
Turns out the idea of giving Natasha a modest grave was Johansson’s. In an interview with Variety, Black widow Director Cate Shortland responded to the decision to give Natasha a smaller memorial than those received by fellow Avengers Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans). “Scarlett told me about it: her character would have hated a public funeral“Shortland said.”So I felt that the fact that she is buried in a really private place, somewhere secluded, is perfect.. “However, Natasha’s grave has not gone unnoticed, as she is surrounded by gifts and flowers during the ending credits scene.
Some fans may get mad at Natasha just by receiving a low-key marker in an uncomplicated graveyard, but Johansson’s reasoning is sound. Natasha has never sought care and has made a living by passing from one person to another. In the end, all he wanted was to save his friends and the world. She didn’t want any recognition for it, so Black widowThe final tribute is quite appropriate. Except, of course, for Contessa Valentina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) blowing her nose.
Black widow He eventually gave Natasha a solo adventure, but if a sequel is made, it won’t include it. Johansson has made it clear that he’s finished playing Black Widow and is now following in Downey and Evans’s footsteps by leaving the franchise. Of course, it should a Black widow two actually happen, one can assume that their presence will be felt in some way. She will always live through Yelena’s continuing arc, and the people of the MCU will probably always remember what she did for them. The same can be said for fans, who will surely miss her for a long time.
