Black Widow may no longer be from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the studio has not finished collaborating with Scarlett Johansson.
Scarlett Johansson vs Disney drama was believed to mark the end of a long relationship, but it was really just a new beginning. With Disney, which has resolved to readjust its acting contracts so that they are not deprived of part of their earnings when their films end (also) on Disney +, as much to say that the actress of Black Widow rocked the cottages with his lawsuit.
But more than the dusty cupboards of US jurisdiction, Mickey’s heart was shaken. Johansson was not only able to mark his reconciliation with the relaunch of a film based on the attraction of the Tower of Terror, but she was rehired on the superhero side of Marvel Studios.
Scarlett Johansson: the hidden post-credits scene of her career unveils
Deadline relayed this announcement and, to be clear from the outset, the project in question bears no relation to the character of the Black Widow, who made her exit from the MCU in Avengers : Endgame and Black Widow. On November 18, 2021, as the American Cinematheque Award was being held and Johansson was a guest, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, celebrated the announcement of a small pamphlet:
“Scarlett Johansson has lent her talent and star aura to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a decade. I’m grateful for her dedication, for playing such an important role all this time. Working with her is truly one of the most memorable and rewarding things of my career. “
Kevin Feige’s voice reminds them …
But what about the project in question? For the moment, we do not know, except that Johansson will be producer. A position that she will hold a second time at Marvel Studios, since she was already executive producer of Black Widow (and no other MCU actor has worn such a cap, in the past). Either way, the fact that she isn’t announced as an actress makes sense, considering the Black Widow concluded her arc with the opening of Phase 4 (ironically, when you got us).
Most as long as she has a presence as an actress, you could still use her voice in a movie or an animated series to expand the cinematic universe, as did What If… ?, or put thirty tons of makeup or CGI on it to play a new character. After all, Gemma Chan did the opposite of going from bluish alien Minerva in Captain Marvel to Sersi in The Eternals. As always with Marvel, it’s a business to be continued.
