While Marvel Studios has been keeping a tight lid on the plot details for their Phase 3 Finale, Avengers: Endgame, the latest trailer has given us some indications into the mindset of the surviving Avengers as they begin to process exactly what happened after the events of Infinity War. We see a brooding and grieving Captain America, a vengeful minded Hawkeye/Ronin, a confused Ant-Man, a regretful Thor, and a disparaged Bruce Banner. The one Avenger that seems to be keeping it together is Black Widow.
Based on her extensive training in the Red Room, Natasha Romanoff seems to be dealing with the loss better than most. But is she really?
Thanks to an interview with Empire Magazine, Scarlett Johansson has given us some expletive filled insight into where Black Widow stands, and lets just say, she’s not taking as well as it seems.
“Nat is a very pragmatic person. She’s looking for answers. She was trained, and born and bred to finish the job. When we find her, she’s f***ing pissed off. The one thing we know about Natasha is that she’s going to hunker down and she’s going to get those motherf***ers. That’s her MO.”
It seems everyone is reeling from the “Decimation”, even the stone cold Black Widow. With Endgame focusing on the original 6 Avengers, it seems that a lot of our heroes’ story arcs are coming to their organic end with the final film in the newly crowned “Infinity Saga”. Details are still a bit scarce for the film, mainly with marketing sticking to the first 20 minutes of the movie, but anticipation is at an all time high.
We’re just going to have to wait til April to get the answers we’re all looking for.
What do you think of Johansson’s statement? Are you ready for a more aggressive Black Widow, with nothing to lose? Let us know in the comments below!
