The actress' solo MCU feature was released on July 9.
Scarlett Johansson is reflecting on what surprised her the most about the making of her highly-awaited solo feature.
The actress and fellow cast members David Harbour, Rachel Weisz and Florence Pugh along with director Cate Shortland recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the moments each found exciting during the making of Black Widow.
For Scarlett, it was learning about her character's backstory and how Natasha Romanoff was raised by Russian spies in America.
"I had an idea of what Natasha's life was before, and then to go onto the set and see, 'Oh this is the Red Room, this is Dreykov, this is his office, this was the life before,' it was such a surreal thing to see all of that", she explained. "As actors, we always build all that stuff up in our minds, and then you suddenly see it all put together by this extraordinary group of artists … It was very strange but it was cool."
"The safe house, imagining the time that Clint Barton and Natasha spent together in these small spaces and what actually happened in Budapest, just uncovering all of that stuff was very, very interesting", she added. "Surprising."
Black Widow was released simultaneously in theaters and through Disney+ with Premier Access on July 9 after several pandemic-related delays. Upon its release, Scarlett's solo debut in the MCU set a new record by grossing $80 million in its opening weekend in the US.
Scarlett Johansson recently addressed whether she'll return as Natasha Romanoff for future films.
