Black Widow’s own film will finally be released on July 9th. The cereal package was the only media from Finland to take part in the press conference organized in connection with the new film.
From a Finnish point of view, Black Widow’s virtual press conference was held comfortably on Friday night at midnight – in the United States, of course, in the middle of the day. The event was attended by Marvel boss and producer Kevin Feige, movie director Cate Shortland as well as actors Scarlett Johansson and a new face David Harbour, Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz.
At the half-hour event, we will learn these ten things, among other things. Attention! Article not inside actual plot revelations.
1. The Black Widow ranks chronologically between Civil War and Infinity War
Kevin Feige: We knew there was a long snippet in Natasha’s past that we knew nothing about – not only in her childhood but also between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. The moment was now ripe to look at his past and present, and also to give clues to the legacy of the future left behind by him. All in one package, thanks to Cate Shortland.
2. Natasha is now seen for the first time alone and outside her comfort zone
Cate Shortland: From the beginning, we knew we had to focus on two things, telling Natasha as an individual and at the same time telling her what happened to her while she was all alone. I wanted it to be as fun as an amusement park ride, but at the same time raw, and for those two to overlap seamlessly. We didn’t want his traumatic past to come out too depressingly, but we took it into account with humor.
Scarlett Johansson: Natasha is indeed alone for the first time. He has always been a part of something, first a victim of the Red Room, then he joined SHIELD and finally part of the Avengers. And suddenly he finds himself alone, outside his comfort zone. It’s awesome because we’ve never seen him like that. He is full of doubt.
3. Marvel Studios is a pleasant workplace with enthusiastic employees
Cate Shortland: Working in a Marvel production was in a way very similar to the previous films I made because in doing so you forget about infrastructure because you are so focused on what Rachel, Florence, David or Scarlett are doing. But to get to that moment, you have to walk 20 minutes past 500 trucks and 400 people. When it comes to Marvel, I imagine it’s a massive studio machine, but in reality, there were only eager, ordinary people who wanted to make a movie with me.
4. Black Widow’s opening collage is different from other Marvel films and features, among other things, crying children
Kevin Feige: We wanted to do something different and create a stage for what these women have had to experience in their past, and what Ray Winstone’s character, who is the evil in our film, has done and why he’s just so bad. The idea for it only came later during production, but it became those few early collages that really help internalize the film’s theme and the background story of the characters.
5. Yelena is a new character in the Marvel movies and Florence Pugh got to define her own character
Florence Pugh: Cate urged me to think about how Yelena thinks, how she moves, how she dresses, and developing this character was terribly fun. Yelena has lived in the Red Room and then starts living her own life and is terribly excited about it. For example, he gets to buy his own clothes, just like now, even a vest with a lot of pockets. Cate encouraged me to find peculiarities in her and then rely on them.
6. Florence Pugh’s first contact with the world of Marvel was the beating of Scarlett Johansson
Florence Pugh: The first scene I got to do was a battle scene between Natasha and Yelena in Budapest. Literally on the first day of filming, I was throwing Scarlett on the wall and she hit my head in the sink. There seems to be no better way to break the ice than to wrestle with Scarlett Johansson on the floor and try to strangle each other.
Cate Shortland: And at that time there was still a heat wave. The filming was like being in a microwave. It was awesome to see these two women fighting very effortlessly – and after the scene ended, we watered them with a hose.
7. The battle scenes in the film differ both from each other and from the battles of previous Marvel films
Cate Shortland: We wanted each battle scene to have a heart of its own. For example, a scene where Natasha fights Taskmaster and tries to use her own skills, and then she finds that it doesn’t work out. We talked to the choreographer at the beginning of the movie that I want to see people in the movie fighting instead of superheroes. Everything became a little messy, raw and unexpected, and therefore so much fun.
8. Rachel Weisz, who plays a character named Melina, and David Harbor (Red Guardian) have great chemistry with each other
Rachel Weisz: I love stories about women, making a film directed by a woman and with other women, but so as not to forget her – I really loved working with David Harbor a lot. I had to harden myself so I wouldn’t have laughed at David Harbor because he’s one of the most eccentric, originally funny people on the entire planet. Also, I liked that Melina’s character has no sense of humor at all, so none.
9. The Red Guardian, portrayed by David Harbor, is the film’s funniest character
David Harbour: Yeah yeah, thanks but when you laugh at me and not with me! I appreciate it. He is a funny character. The comedy comes from the fact that he has built his own ego to protect him from all the sadness and remorse he feels. He has to be so pompous because he doesn’t want to stop and feel these feelings, all the mistakes he has made. He has built a reality for himself where he is a hero and it is inherently whimsical.
10. David Harbor would like to make a joint story of the Red Guardian and Captain American
David Harbour: Of course I would like to make a joint story between the Red Guardian and Captain American! In Black Widow, Alexei tells stories about her life when she was a Red Guardian, and you can’t tell exactly whether they are true. But I think the classic Cold War story between the two could be really funny in terms of dynamics. After all, they are both, in a way, the core of mutual armaments, so it could be a really awesome concept.
Black Widow will premiere in movie theaters on July 9th. It will also be released on the same day in the premium access section of Disney Plus for an additional fee.
