LOS ANGELES — Lacy Lennon's character reveal as
Natasha Romanoff in the upcoming Wicked Pictures feature “Black Widow
XXX: An Axel Braun Parody" has picked up social media heat with more
than 3,000 combined "likes" on Twitter and Instagram.
"The wait is over. The Black Widow you deserve is here," Lennon said.
"True to their reputations as consummate devotees of comic book
lore," noted a rep, "the photo reveals Braun and Lennon have
collaborated to create the first screen iteration of the deadly superspy
faithful to the character creator Stan Lee, scripter Don Rico and
artist Don Heck first introduced in 'Tales of Suspense' No. 52 over half
a century ago."
"Pop culture critics were quick to contrast Lennon's canonical red
tresses and bangs with the ever-evolving hair colors and styles of
Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow in the Marvel films," the rep added.
"From the curl-tastic burgundy 'do of 'Iron Man 2' to 'Infinity War's'
blonde semi-bob, Black Widow's big-screen persona often seemed more
aligned with other movies Johansson may have been filming concurrently
with the 'Avengers' cycle than with the Natasha Romanoff enshrined in
"Black Widow XXX: An Axel Braun Parody" is scheduled for release on July 9.
In related news, Lennon recently spoke about her first day on the set of the parody release.
