Film Review: ‘Black Widow’

It wasn’t that long ago that the idea of a Black Widow standalone film sounded more like a fan dream than a realistic expectation. And then it somehow got greenlit. Back in 2010 when the main Marvel films were more or less just Iron Man, Kevin Feige, the mastermind behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe, floated the idea that Black Widow may get a standalone film, but that quickly petered out. Around 2014, the idea garnered new interest once the studio and Scarlett Johansson saw the love the audience had for the character. That interest peaked during the filming of Infinity War, the pieces finally came together, and here we are today with the film finally unveiled to the public.

The Suicide Squad Producer Rules Out Connections To Previous Film

The Suicide Squad is definitely not a reboot but it's also not a sequel. This is the message producer Peter Safran hammered home to members of the press on the film's set back in 2019. Safran continually promised, "We don't address it," when faced with questions about how James Gunn's new DC Comics movie will connect to or acknowledge the original Suicide Squad movie from David Ayer. Safran said this as though it were an easy thing to comprehend; a movie which returns cast members as a sequel would but simultaneously acts as though the predecessor does not exist. It seems like a point moviegoers will better comprehend upon seeing the movie as the new adventure is also promised to not contradict previous stories from the original Squad, Birds of Prey, or other DC Comics titles involving The Suicide Squad's characters.
