Scarlett Johansson initially had doubts about starring as Black Widow in The Avengers, thinking the concept of bringing so many superheroes together would be a "disaster." However, during the filming of the movie, she had a moment where she felt it would work. Johansson also expressed missing the opportunity to analyze and dissect her roles with directors, particularly Noah Baumbach. She discussed feeling flummoxed when the pandemic hit and how her daughter helped ground her. Due to the current conditions, Johansson stated that she would wait until she could work in a connected environment to resume her career.
