Black Widow Concept Art:
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ was the movie in which we saw the return of a lot of superheroes from dark as we have seen Captain America coming in whole new avatar but there was another superhero whose return was quite impressive. Yes, we are talking about Black Widow whose costume and the look was applauded by many but recent concept art reveals that we could’ve got a better one in the movie.
We have to say this but this doesn’t happen a lot of time when we say that the concept art of a character is better than the actual design which we got in the movie but it seems like it has happened this time with one of the most important characters for the MCU as we all know that the level of popularity Scarlett Johansson’s character Black Widow have all around the globe.
The change we have seen in the look of Black WIdow in the movie Infinity War is that her red hair which makes her simply beautiful turned into platinum blonde which seems to be a disastrous choice by the makers of the film in order to make Black Widow more darker or coming from some sort of hide.
We have also seen a lot of superheroes having changed as Iron Man has Mark L armor in the movie. But, it was the transformation of Black Widow which caught everyone’s attention.
Recently, Visual Development Director at Marvel Studios, Andy Park revealed in the ‘Avengers: Infinity War – The Art of the movie’ that the actual physical look of Black Widow is far different from the one we got to see in the movie and is also really interesting one.
Park revealed the most satisfying thing that the change of Black Widow’s hair color isn’t part of his early concept art but later he revealed that he understands the idea behind that platinum blonde hair as she was hiding in the dark.
Park has also explained a lot of things in the context of the costume design of Black Widow as she stated,
“The idea is that she’s on the run so she doesn’t have the ability or time to create a whole new costume, but she can add to her existing one. So I tried a variety of options, from giving her a tactical vest to a scarf to a few additional armored pieces. I also gave her batons attached to a sleek, slimmed-down backpack to give her silhouette an additional flare.”
The concept art is down below and you can have a look at it:
So, do you also think that this is better than the version we got in the movie or you think that this look is quite familiar and the movie needed a new and refreshed look of Black Widow?
There can be a lot of different answers to the question I’ve asked from all of you out there but we have to admit that the popularity and also the confidence the people at Marvel Studios have on this character is really huge as we all know that a movie is going to be the next target of the studio.
With the news of Scarlett Johansson getting her solo movie, there are a lot of revelations from the actress herself in order to state her own views about the idea of a solo movie of Black Widow and she has said earlier this year,
“I think that there is a…laughs, it’s such a loaded question,” Johansson stated. “Yes, I would want to in the right context and for the film to fit where I’m at, where I am in my life. I mean I’ve played this character for a long time. It’s been probably like 8 years or more, and so much has happened in my life, my life as a performer and happened in my life personally.”
“I love playing this character, and I think there is definitely an opportunity to explore the Widow as a woman who has kind of come into her own and is making independent and active choices for herself probably for once in her life. You know she hasn’t always had that possibility so if it fit that criteria then yes I would want to do it.”
Right now, we have to wait for the solo movie of Black Widow as we have two biggies coming next year for us in the name of Captain Marvel and Avengers 4.
“Writing is one of my strengths and all I can say is that I observe things and try my best in order to convert them into words without the pressure of satisfying people’s demands.”
