Black Widow Backstory In “Civil War” Cut Scene

Marvel Studios had its first big film of the year back in May with “Captain America: Civil War” opening worldwide and is still proving to be one of the year’s biggest hits.

One of the standouts of the film, if not the whole MCU, has to be Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow). A firm fan favorite, there’s long been support for her to get her own solo film so that we can find out more about her character.

It turns out that a sequence from ‘Civil War’ had a reveal which never made it to the theatrical cut. Movie Pilot has posted a new snippet from the junior novelization of the movie that features a conversation between Steve and Natasha early in the film. It’s a talk during which Widow asks Steve to look out for his friends:

“Natasha studied Cap’s expression of resolve. Finally, she said, ‘In Russia, in the Red Room, there were dozens of us. All girls, all young. We lived together. They let us be friends. Then they dropped us in the tundra, two weeks’ walk from home, with just enough supplies for one of us to survive.’ Cap looked at her, understanding her meaning. ‘Don’t let them push us into the cold,’ she said.”

We got a glimpse of Natasha’s experience in the Red Room during her dream sequence in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” but sadly nothing much more. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has previously said they are “committed” to a Black Widow solo movie which has yet to have a release date. ‘Civil War’ hits disc on September 2nd.
