Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson is all set to feature on Indian screens with the release of her much-awaited action thriller ‘Black Widow’.
Scarlett, who plays Natasha Romanoff in the much-loved Marvel movie, was first introduced as Black Widow in the 2010's 'Iron Man 2' and the last time she reprised her role was in 2019's 'Avengers: Endgame' where her character died.
'Black Widow' has Johansson reprising her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh is starring as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz will be Melina.
Johansson has played Black Widow, a major role in seven Marvel movies, tracking her evolution from a morally dubious Russian assassin to a world-saving Avenger.
In the upcoming film, pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. What's even more interesting is that viewers will witness the new Marvel villain, Taskmaster.
The movie, helmed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, will hit the theatres and will be available to be stream on Disney+ Premier on July 9.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19 norms it will not release in India on the same date. However it is expected on the streaming service, three months later - October 8.
This is because Disney+ Premier is a video on demand option that is not available to subscribers in India.
Scarlett recently appeared in an interview on the 'Good Morning America' show, where she revealed that she will no longer play her Marvel character after the release of the upcoming film 'Black Widow', reported People magazine.
"I've had an incredible decade working with my Marvel family. I'm going to miss not seeing them every 18 months or two years, like that kind of milestones I always really look forward to," Johansson said.
She added, "But I feel really proud of this film and I think it's great to go out on a high note. This movie is so different from any other Marvel film that we've done so far, so yeah... like I said, it's bittersweet."
