In January 2009, Marvel and Emily Blunt entered an early meeting to play Black Widow in “Iron Man 2,” although she was unable to play the role of “Gulliver’s Travels” because of her previous promise Take this role. In March 2009, Scarlett Johansson signed a contract to perform Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, and won the right to choose including multiple movies.

After the release of “Era of Ultron”, Johnson revealed that since she first signed the contract, she had adjusted the number of films in the contract to match the “character needs” because Marvel did not anticipate the audience’s “huge reaction” to the character. , Her performance.
In February 2014, Feige stated that after exploring the past of Black Widow in the Ultron era, he would like to see it be further explored in a single-player film that has completed development work, including Nicole Perlman’s “quite in-depth “Healing, co-authored “Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy” (2014).

You can use it for all kinds of things.” She warned that she might not want to wear “tight catsuits” for a long time.
In February of the following year, Johnson said that she would work on making any possible “Black Widow” movies. This will be the best possible version of the movie. Otherwise, I will never do become my own independent product, style, and story. “Because the development work has been completed and the public support of the Black Widow film has been obtained, Marvel finally decided that “the best time to advance the project” will be the beginning of the “newest phase” of the MCU in 2020.
In October 2017, before Marvel started meeting with writers on the project, including Jac Schaeffer, Feige met with Johansson to discuss the direction of a potential personal film.

After the final trailer for the film was released a week later, Forbes’ Scott Mendelson emphasized that the existence of the trailer and the use of the May 2020 release date proved that the film was not delayed. He said that this is “a logical choice at this moment.” He believes that the film is already “at the ideal release date” and there is no evidence that the pandemic will affect the film’s performance in the United States. A week later, movie theaters across the United States were closed due to the pandemic, and the CDC did not encourage gatherings of more than 50 people. Disney deleted the movie from the movie released in May.
When discussing the decision on Variety, Adam B. Vary and Matt Donnelly questioned whether this delay will have a greater impact on the MCU than other large properties due to the inter-connection of the franchise. A Marvel Studios source told them that changing the movie’s release date will not affect the rest of the MCU timeline, and they speculate that this is due to the movie’s prequel status. Disney changed the entire fourth-stage release plan in April, setting the November 2020 release date of “Eternal” as “Black Widow”, and moved all other fourth-stage movies back to the schedule to accommodate this.
