– What does Scarlett Johansson have that others don’t?
American actress shaping the film and streaming hit “Black Widow.” But what really makes your star quality?

And suddenly again: cinema. Big Cinema. The latest Marvel adventure “Black Widow”, which delves deep into the abyss of a false family, has not only attracted viewers around the world in numbers that never happened during the pandemic (Box Office: nearly 200 so far) million dollars). The film is also emerging as a hit on the Disney+ streaming platform (grossing $60 million on its first weekend).
This is no coincidence. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is by far the most successful franchise in the world and the number one in terms of narrative innovation in otherwise dull Hollywood. However, one is a bit baffled, because first, two years have passed since the last Marvel film, and second, there is now Scarlett Johansson, who, as the lead actress, shapes the big screen with emotionally grounded action.
