Black Widow Pic Reveals Never-Before-Seen ScarJo Costume
A behind-the-scenes photo from production on Black Widow reveals Scarlett Johansson’s first costume as Natasha Romanoff in the MCU film.
A newly released behind-the-scenes photo from the production on Black Widow reveals Scarlett Johansson’s original costume adapted for her role as Natasha Romanoff in this Marvel Cinematic Universe film.
The image below was posted on Instagram by costume designer Jany Temime, known for her work on the films of the Harry Potter franchise as well as 2012 celestial fall. Temime, who was the costume designer of Black Widow, captioned the photo, “Scarlett’s first fitting in the Black Widow costume. Shiny, powerful, beautiful. She’s gorgeous!” Temime did not specify when, exactly, the photo was taken.
Released in 2021 to positive reviews, Black Widow earned $379.6 million at the worldwide box office against a budget of around $200 million. While that might seem low for a movie in the MCU, Black Widow released during the COVID-19 pandemic and received a dual release on Disney+ as part of the streaming service’s Premier Access capability. This led Johansson to sue for breach of contract and lost wages. Disney and Johansson have finally settled their lawsuit, and she’s currently working on a non-Black Widow-related project for Marvel Studios.
Set between the events of 2016 Captain America: Civil War and 2018 Avengers: Infinity War, Black Widow saw Romanoff flee the government due to his opposition to the Sokovia Accords. Romanoff soon learns that the Red Room is active again and teams up with his family — Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian (David Harbour), and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) — to take down the organization, which is using mind control on his agents.
Created by Stan Lee, Don Rico and Don Heck, Black Widow first appeared in 1964 tales of suspense #52. Originally a villain, Black Widow is a master spy and a key member of the Avengers. Johansson debuted as Black Widow in the 2010s iron man 2 and reprized his role for several subsequent MCU films. His character died in 2019 Avengers: Endgamewhere she sacrificed herself to obtain the Soul Stone, which the Avengers needed to reverse Thanos’ Snap.
Directed by Cate Shortland from a screenplay by Eric Pearson, Black Widow is available to stream now on Disney+. The title is also available on home media.
