Marvel’s Black Widow had the best of the best - an incredible cast, strong writing, a director with a vision and perhaps surprisingly, some of the best improv around! The lead actors, Scarlet Johansson, Florence Pugh and David Harbour worked together to bring an incredible dynamic on screen. According to Johansson, Florence Pugh crushed the ego of herself and other Marvel actors with one improvised line that made fun of pretty well every unrealistic superhero landing pose that had gone before - and there are a LOT. Thanks to a very informative and somewhat surprising conversation with the stunt team, Pugh found herself joking around and when writer Eric Pearson caught wind of the idea, he knew it was worth including in the film! There was no shortage of female empowerment in this MCU movie - one misogynistic line noted by Johansson, Pugh and director Cate Shortland wound up getting an improvised comeback. Yelena and Natasha wind up addressing the dark fact that they, along with all the other Widow’s are sterilized and don’t steer away from giving Red Guardian ALL the details. Santa Claus coming up during the dinner scene is a bit surprising - which makes sense considering it was never in the script! David Harbour whipped out improvisations throughout filming. In fact, the majority of the helicopter scene banter between himself, Pugh and Johansson was just the actors playing off of each other. Harbour wound up being responsible for one of the most profound moments we see with the Red Guardian - one that involves a classic song. We’re diving into all these great improvised moments - let us know which one is your favorite!
