Scarlett Johansson’s forthcoming Black Widow movie is set to feature a #MeToo storyline.

In a recent interview with British movie magazine Empire, the leading lady opened up on the plot of her new film, teasing it is “very much reflective” of the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements.

“It would be such a miss if we didn’t address that stuff, if this film didn’t take that head-on,” she explained. “I think, particularly for Cate (Shortland, director), it was so important for her to make a movie about women who are helping other women, who lift other women up out of a very difficult situation.

“Someone asked me if Natasha (Romanoff, aka Black Widow) was a feminist,” Scarlett added of her Marvel character. “Of course she is, it’s obvious. It’s kinda an asinine question.”

Black Widow is set to hit theatres on November 6, 2020.
