Here's the Working Title for BLACK WIDOW
It is normal for films to have working titles during production. For example, Star Wars: Episode IX had the working title trIXie. We now know the working title for Marvel’s Black Widow. According to Producction Weekly (via CB), the film is being referred to as Blue Bayou and it is set to begin filming in the United Kingdom (most likely at Pinewood Studios) this June.
It is believed that the title refers to Roy Orbison’s song of the same name. Linda Ronstadt then performed a cover of the song and was extremely popular. It was nominated for two Grammys in 1977 and peaked at #3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
Do you think there’s any secret reasoning for this working title, or is it just a song that Cate Shortland (the film’s director) really likes?
