Was the ending of Black Widow in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ the right one? This is Scarlett Johansson’s opinion

The events of Avengers: Endgame (Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, 2019) closed different narrative lines. In one way or another, the journey of several of Marvel’s heroes concluded to, perhaps, give way to others. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) lived events that altered their passage through the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Although within the stories the above is necessary, because the stories should not be expanded until they break or lose credibility, the debates persist beyond the facts. This happens, in particular, with Black Widow. His character had a closure that not a few consider traumatic or painful.

The repercussion of that narrative decision still has implications and is present for the actress in charge of playing Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson. The actress reopened the debate during the filming of her next film.

What did Scarlett Johansson say about Black Widow and ‘Avengers: Endgame’?

The journey of Black Widow within the Marvel Cinematic Universe describes a character oriented, in essence, to attend to his missions. Spy, defend, attack, investigate. Natasha Romanoff was shown as a distant person towards her own emotions.

However, his evolution led to his feelings becoming more evident. In that sense, Avengers: Endgame it is key because it shows him, perhaps as never before, vulnerable. Although during the previous films he was in danger, the emotional fragility that he showed at that moment was a novelty in its depth. That family, which Black Widow had recovered, made up of superhero friends, was gone.
