Lucrecia Martel explains why she refused to direct Black Widow


Argentine director Lucrecia Martel, in an interview with The Pioneer, explained why she rejected the position of director of the Black Widow solo film.

“I received an email from Marvel for a meeting, because they were looking for directors for ‘Black Widow’. So, I went to the meeting. Marvel is trying to look for female directors. They said to me, ‘Don’t worry about the action scenes, we’ll take care of that.’ I was like, ‘Well, I would love to meet Scarlett Johansson, but I would also love to do the action scenes. ”

“Companies are interested in female directors, but they still think action scenes are for male directors. The first thing I asked them was if we could change the special effects, because there are a lot of lights … I think they are horrible. Furthermore, the soundtracks of Marvel films are horrendous. It is painful for the ears to watch a Marvel movie. ”, He concluded.

Possible synopsis of the Black Widow film “At birth, the Black Widow (also known as Natasha Romanova) is given to the KGB, which prepares her to become her deadly weapon. When the USSR dissolves, the government tries to maintain it while the action moves to today’s New York, where it is an autonomous agent. The film will show Romanoff living in the United States 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union. ”

Screenwriter Jac Schaeffer was hired to write the script for the film, rumors suggest that the film should be released in 2020.
