In Marvel Studios’ Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) confronts the demons from her past in a spectacular and explosive fashion. After discovering a flying fortress hidden in the clouds, Romanoff destroys the base, leading to an airborne battle where the film’s heroes and villains dodge flaming wreckage as the base crashes back to earth. The highly complex and technically demanding sequence was primarily handled by Digital Domain.

The Red Room Rises

Since her introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) more than a decade ago, the origins of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, have only been hinted at through the occasional one-liner and dream-like flashback. In Black Widow, Romanoff’s history is finally revealed, including her time spent in the brutal “Red Room,” a training ground for world-class assassins that she thought was destroyed. After the discovery that it is still active, and airborne, the Red Room makes a spectacular environment for the climax of the film.

Working with Marvel Studios and their visual development group, Digital Domain created the flying Red Room and the surrounding environments entirely in CG. The structure was designed to appear both intimidating and functional, with Marvel artists choosing a style that echoes Soviet-era architecture. The massive base features airstrips, walkways, a central tower, and several engines keeping the structure aloft, all of which needed to be created digitally.

To bring the Red Room and the surrounding environment to life, including individual clouds and the countryside below, Digital Domain’s artists used a suite of post-production tools that integrated both Maya animation and Houdini effects pipelines. One of the complex issues the team needed to address was keeping the audience from being confused as debris swirled around the action. It is easy in such dramatic high concept action pieces to end up with a disorientating series of shots that become disjointed, compared to a cohesive action sequence that engages the audience. Virtual cinematography allows the camera to go anywhere, and yet when producing such a fantastic sequence, the camera work needs to remain motivated with grounded camera blocking and framing.

In total, Digital Domain completed around 320 shots for the film, with work spread between its Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Montreal offices. The studio’s work on Black Widow marks more than a decade of collaboration with Marvel Studios, including multiple feature films and television series. Digital Domain recently completed work on Loki, and is currently working on Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
