The newest Marvel film, which did some filming in Macon in October, serves as a prequel within the the blockbuster "Avengers" series. It takes place during the two-year gap between "Captain America: Civil War" and "Avengers: Infinity War." And unlike the last female-starring Marvel release, "Captain Marvel," this is not an origin story.

"I did not want it to be an origin story," Johansson told Vanity Fair. "I did not want it to be an espionage story. I didn't want it to feel superficial at all. I only wanted to do it if it actually fit where I was with that character.
“I had spent such a long time peeling those layers away — I felt that unless we got to something deep, then there was no reason to make it. Because I did my job in Endgame, and actually felt satisfied with that. I would have been happy to let that be it. So there had to be a reason to do it other than just to milk something.”
