‘Black Widow’ will be the first film in Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 line up and executive VP of production Victoria Alonso has shared that it “should be the best movie that we make.” The Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown exponentially since ‘Iron Man’ was released in 2008 and it almost feels strange that the next phase will begin with a character who will be dead for the rest of the events that will be occurring moving forward. It really makes you feel that something being introduced here will resonate through the rest of Phase 4. Of course, she did go on to say that at Marvel “dying is just a state of mind” so that could also be a hint at what the film introduces when it comes to Natasha Romanoff.
As to the why she Alonso feels that ‘Black Widow’ will end up being a good film, she commented:
“If we don’t make a good movie, that’s on us. The pressure internally is far more than the media, and the fans give us. We try to do things that are not the same. That are a little different. We take a risk. … We can’t do the same all the time.”
We all know that Marvel Studios has insisted on a high standard for their films and I’m eager to how they give us a send-off to a character who is no longer alive in the MCU.
While the plot for ‘Black Widow’ is still a mystery, we do know that there will be multiple Black Widows thanks to Rachel Weisz, the Soviet super The Red Guardian played by David Harbour, Natasha’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’ sacrifice further fleshed out, and the inclusion of Taskmaster.
I’m curious as to what the risks Marvel Studios is planning to take here outside of this being a bit of a flashback movie.
