Black Widow will have its own peculiarities compared to the other Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Victoria Alonso: “we try to do things that differ. We run risks, we can’t keep repeating ourselves”.
At a conference held at SIGGRAPH 2019, Victoria Alonso, executive vice president of production at Marvel Studios, said that Black Widow, the next film dedicated to the character of Natasha Romanoff, “should be our best film”.
Alonso remarked, in particular, the need to maintain a high-quality level after the release of Avengers: Endgame, which has recently passed Avatar in the ranking of the films with the best takings of all time.
“If we don’t make a good film, it’s our fault,” he added, speaking with The Hollywood Reporter. “The internal pressure is much higher than what the media and fans give us. We try to do things that are different. We run risks, we can’t keep repeating ourselves”.
Endgame has put an end to important and charismatic figures like those of Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, but Marvel remains focused on the rich baggage of stories that have not yet been told. “There are so many stories to tell,” he continued. “The wonderful thing about Marvel is that we have 6,000 characters available.”
Black Widow will be the first film belonging to the so-called Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The theatrical release is scheduled for May 1, 2020. Scarlett Johansson will be joined by David Harbor (Stranger Things), OT Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale), Florence Pugh (A Family at the Carpet) and Rachel Weisz (La Favorita). The story will be set after the events of Captain America: Civil War.
