Black Widow Director Cate Shortland On The Scene Kevin Feige Fought To Keep In The Movie

By typical Marvel standards, this year’s Black Widow has a pretty intimate tone, getting up-close and personal with the red on Natasha Romanoff’s ledger. If the MCU has always done well at balancing major comic book spectacle with carefully-calibrated character moments, Scarlett Johansson’s swansong for her long-running character leant towards the latter end of that spectrum (while still delivering huge sky-falling action in its final reel), playing out a story of a broken family unit as Natasha reunites with her lost ‘sister’ Yelena (Florence Pugh), ‘mother’ Melina (Rachel Weisz) and ‘father’ Alexei (David Harbour).
