Originally created to antagonize Iron Man, Scarlett was a perfect foil for Robert Downey, Jr. in the MCU.

It was honestly, way too long for this character to get her own feature film and once she did we were in a worldwide pandemic in lockdown. When Disney tried to change the release of the film it triggered a lawsuit by Scarlett and her representatives due to the haphazard manner in which Bob Chapek handled the contract.

In the end Disney learned a very valuable less and Scarlett earned the respect of most in the industry in the way she stood her ground in the face of the world’ largest entertainment company.
