“For me, this was an incredible opportunity to be able to return to a character I love so much and be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the past 11 years”, enthuses Scarlett Johansson. “It’s rare that you get the chance to uncover the different layers and facets of a character over a longer period of time. In many ways, this process reflects my own development and the challenges I’ve faced. It’s an amazing gift for an actor to be able to have this kind of experience. And with this film you could feel that we were doing something extraordinary here. During filming, we often looked around the set and all of us had this great feeling that the original team had come together again. We often looked back on how this journey began and what different experiences we’d had together. So much has changed for all of us over the past ten years – in our careers and in our lives. During the shooting of the Avengers films, you always had the feeling that you would return to your family over the holidays and then pick up where you left off. We are all very close, because we spent so much time together and went through so much together. And this dynamic ends up in the films in many ways”.
