Black Widow Full Movie Review
As a huge fan of Scarlet Johnson, you’d love the character she’s portrayed and so well. This is good as ‘Captain America the winter soldier as it’s in a similar tone to that movie and Black Widow brought out most of my emotions in this movie which are Excitement, laughter, and sadness. While some claim this to be an anti-male feminist movie, it’s surely worth a watch as reveals a lot about Natasha’s background that wasn’t explored yet.
Is Black Widow hit or flop?
The film Black Widow has broken quite many post-pandemic movies as it grossed $371 million worldwide, $67 million as it opened on Disney+ making it the fifth-highest performing film of 2021.
