BLACK WIDOW Director Cate Shortland On The One Scene Kevin Feige Fought To Keep In The Movie

Quite a few important scenes ended up being cut from Black Widow, and if it wasn't for Kevin Feige, it sounds like one of the best sequences would have joined them! Find out more after the jump...

Over the past few weeks, some deleted scenes from the Black Widow Blu-ray have found their way online, and they've left many fans at a loss as to why they were removed from the film. Now, it's come to light that a key sequence - which proved to be a vital and entertaining character-building moment - may also have ended up on the cutting room floor if Kevin Feige hadn't fought for its inclusion.

While speaking to Empire Magazine, director Cate Shortland revealed that she wasn't sure the dinner table sequence with Natasha (Scarlett Johansson), Yelena (Florence Pugh), Melina (Rachel Weisz) and Alexei (David Harbour) re-establishing their family dynamic really worked, but Feige felt it "needed to be in the film."

"He doesn’t give you many directives, he’s very free,” Shortland said of the Marvel Studios boss. “But that was a scene he really felt needed to be in the film, and Scarlett and I kept fighting him on it, saying, ‘How will this ever work?’ But it became a very alive thing. You’ve got this bunch of people shipwrecked together, who are still desperately trying to cling onto the roles that they had in Ohio, because that’s all they know. That’s all they have. And it’s beautiful for me.”

It's a shame Feige didn't feel the same way about giving the movie a satisfactory/coherent ending!

What do you guys think? Would Black Widow have worked as well without this scene? Drop us a comment down below.
