Variety: Scarlett Johansson in Black Widow

After more than a year of Covid-induced delays, Black Widow was released in cinemas and on Disney+ yesterday. In what could be one of the biggest hits of the year, Scarlett Johansson reprises the role of Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, a former Russian spy who became a key Avenger and must now confront her troubled past.

In previous Avengers outings, Natasha has hinted at troubles in her past, and Black Widow paints a bleak picture of a tough childhood which begins in Ohio, where she’s part of a family that turns out to be fake. Her “parents” are Russian spies and have to leave the US in a hurry when S.H.I.E.L.D. finds out about them.
