Black Widow, the Screenwriter Cried Seeing Natasha in Avengers: Endgame


Speaking with Inverse, screenwriter Jac Schaeffer, who wrote the script for Black Widow for Marvel Studios, revealed that she cried while watching Avengers: Endgame.

As you will know, during the film by the Russian brothers Natasha and Clint they go to Vormir (or better, to the planet Vormir of 2014) to recover the Gem of the Soul before Thanos does it (as seen in Avengers: Infinity War ): here however the Red Skull imposes on the two Avengers the same type of sacrifice that he had imposed (or that he would have imposed) on the villain of Josh Brolin, and at that point it is Natasha to jump off the cliff (at the end of a sequence that we have selected for our special on the three best scenes of Endgame ).

” I cried like a child, ” said the screenwriter about the scene. ” I was very impressed by the thing, I felt a very strange feeling. As a writer of his film I have strong feelings about the character, I invested a lot in Natasha from the point of view of my work, I threw myself body and soul because I think this is what a writer should do with the character he is writing about, so that it becomes a real person for you. So seeing his death in a film I hadn’t the slightest bit of work … it was a bit like seeing his ex with his new boyfriend. I felt a strange kind of repression that seemed wrong and right at the same time. But his bow in that movie is simply wonderful. “
