Scarlett Johansson Hated Her Black Widow Costume So Badly It Was Never Shown in MCU Movies: ” It was very quickly killed”

Scarlett Johansson found fame after starring in the role of Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Portraying the character, Johansson had to undergo several costume changes throughout the entirety of the MCU.

Scarlett Johansson Refused To Wear A Costume In The MCU

Back in the days when the MCU was still exploring and setting base, the world was delighted to have one of the greatest cinematic experiences when Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released in 2014. Portraying a significant role in the movie, Johansson portrayed the character of Black Widow who was essentially a shape-shifter in the movie.

Recalling the time of the shooting, Johansson admitted that the MCU was going for a femme fatale look. She revealed that the costumes represented her character’s growth over the years and it was crucial to the development of the character. There was one costume however, that seemed to be off-limits for Scarlett Johansson.

“In some [ways] I look at it as a costume she was wearing — at the time, Marvel was interested in the character being a shape-shifter. When we were doing Captain America: The Winter Soldier — this is a really funny thing — the look is fantastic and utilitarian. She first drives up in this beautiful car and picks up Cap, and initially in the script, it was like, she arrives in her tennis whites, with a blonde wig. It was very quickly killed,”


The costume was quickly changed to a more appropriate attire that would actually suit the context of the events that occurred. It would have truly been weird if the actress would have showed up in tennis whites with a blonde wig.

The upcoming movie that Scarlett Johansson will give her voice to is the animated film titled Transformers One. With an animated movie of the beloved franchise, the actress is quite excited about its release and claims that the movie is “so cool!”.

“Yes, I’m playing Elita. I’m working with Josh Cooley, who is an incredible writer-director who I adore and have worked creatively with in another capacity. The film doesn’t look like anything I’ve ever seen before, it looks so cool! The texture of it is so awesome. And because Josh wrote it, it just feels very… I don’t know, it’s got a very dramatic feeling about it. It’s funny, but it’s got so much heart to it like all of his stuff does.”

With the movie currently in production, Transformers One is expected to release on 13th September 2024 worldwide. As for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the MCU movie is available to stream on Disney+.
