Scarlett Johansson Describes Black Widow as an Unexpected ‘Family Drama’

Black Widow may be delayed and its future uncertain, but the marketing plan that was put into place long before the movie was delayed is marching forward; meaning magazine articles planned months ago are now being released. We saw some information from the new issue of Empire from the UK, but this Friday the new issue of Total Film will hit with Black Widow on its cover.

Total Film has posted a preview of the issue, and they include a quote from Scarlett Johansson who explains why Natasha’s mission in this movie is unexpected:

“I think part of Kevin Feige’s genius is that he always thinks about what fans expect out of these films and then gives them something that they never could’ve dreamed of,” adds Johansson. “The idea of Natasha Romanoff in a family drama is the least expected thing, and I had to wrap my head around what that was going to be because there’s such a big tonal shift.”

Black Widow still does not have a new release date, and Disney is still discussing options of what to do with the movie behind the scenes; even if people on the internet don’t want them to.
