Apparently comedian Scarlett Johansson isn’t done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) yet. Indeed, according to Kevin Feige, the actress will soon be involved in a top secret project, unrelated to Black Widow.
A top secret project for Scarlett Johansson
Recently, Scarlett Johansson attended an honorary meeting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, to celebrate her nomination as the 35th recipient of the American Cinemateque Award. Among those present to pay tribute to him, there was Kevin Feige, the big boss of Marvel Studios, who took the floor to congratulate her, but not only. In addition to pointing out her intelligence, common sense, and acting skills, Kevin Feige revealed that Scarlett Johansson isn’t quite done with the MCU. Indeed, the producer teased “A top secret project with Marvel Studios” on which the studio teams up with the actress. However, he clarified that this mystery project will have absolutely no no relation with Black Widow, and added that Scarlett Johansson would be a producer on this mysterious project.
Scarlett has lent her starry talent and power to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for over a decade. That she chose to play a key role there for so many years, I am extremely grateful to her. Working with her has truly been one of the most memorable and rewarding collaborations of my career.
A touching statement from Kevin Feige, who once again wants to work with Scarlett Johansson. A great loyalty when you know that the actress had sued Disney following the broadcast of Black Widow on Disney +, a decision that was contrary to the terms of his contract. A dispute happily resolved since.
Scarlett Johansson has played Black Widow in the MCU since 2010 and Iron Man 2. An iconic role from the Marvel Universe, which places her as the very first female Avenger in the entire MCU. A role she played at 7 covers before having his own film in 2021. The fans know it, Black Widow meets a definitive death in Avengers : Endgame. The character has since returned in his own film, Black Widow, which took place before the events of the last Avengers.
What is this mysterious project?
Anyway, it’s hard to really know what this new top secret project is. At this time, neither Scarlett Johansson nor Kevin Feige have commented further. It is therefore difficult to have more precise tracks. Will it be a movie? A series? Which character (s) will this famous project focus on?
Everything remains open, and we are waiting to learn more about what will be the story, who will make up the cast, etc. Will Scarlett Johansson just be a producer or will she have an extra cap? Maybe, and this is only a hypothesis, that she could also go behind the camera. For the moment, the actress has only gone behind the camera on one occasion, in 2009, when she directed the short film.
