Last year, Avengers: Endgame officially launched and became an impressive ending for Infinity Saga, which started with the movie Iron Man. It has had the appearance of dozens of heroic characters, including Captain America, Thor, Hulk and Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow. Johansson first appeared in Iron Man 2 and later several other Marvel films before her character died in the second half of Endgame.
Black Widow’s death scene is one of the movie’s most surprising and memorable moments, when she and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) go to Vormir to collect the Soul Stone. Throughout this scene, Hawkeye and Black Widow both accept to sacrifice themselves for the benefit of the world, so the two fight with each other. Eventually, Natasha became the first superhero to leave in the film, alongside Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) at the end of the film. Although the causes and implementation are quite different, both of these death scenes are valuable.
In an interview with EW recently, Johansson shared that this death scene had two versions but because the original version was too scary for the young audience, it was replaced. She said, “I thought parents would never forgive the producer of this movie because of the horrible scene. The duo of directors had to consider a lot about which version should be included in Avengers: Endgame.” Although the character is dead, fans will see her again in her own movie – Black Widow.
She will lead a highly anticipated film next May, although its release date may be changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Black Widow is set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, so it is part of the prequel. There is a possibility that Tony Stark will also appear, although actor Robert Downey Jr. has not confirmed nor denied this. In addition, the film will introduce to the audience two more Black Widow played by Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz.
