A fan event premiere took place at the El Capitan in Hollywood earlier in the week. The film, starring Scarlett Johansson in the title role and Florence Pugh as her sister Yelena, hits theaters July 8. “I have no doubt that people will embrace the movie and go see it on the big screen and I encourage them,” Marvel Studios executive vice president of film production Victoria Alonso told Variety at the fan event. “I think that there are measures in place. I think that hopefully people are vaccinated and those that feel they have to wear a mask will wear a mask. This is a movie about finding ourselves and I think if COVID has taught us something, it’s you have to find your fit and you have to find yourself.”
