She stated that the movie reflects the significant progress made in the past five years, emphasizing the strength of women. Johansson also expressed gratitude that her Marvel character, Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, is no longer hyper-sexualized. She highlighted the shift away from objectifying the character and towards showcasing women supporting and uplifting each other.
