Scarlett Johansson will not end up with the Black Widow character. Kevin Feige has announced that he is working on a top-secret Marvel project with Johansson.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige revealed during Thursday night’s American Cinematheque Award ceremony that Johansson is returning on a secret Marvel project as a producer.
Feige said, “We are already working with Scarlett on another non-Black Widow-related top-secret Marvel Studios project with her as a producer.”
Feige continued, “Scarlett is one of the most talented, versatile, and beloved actors of our time. It has truly been a pleasure to work with someone of her caliber, from the epic training sessions preparing for the hallway fight in Iron Man 2 to the around-the-world press tour for Avengers: Endgame to partnering with you as a producer on Black Widow. Working with you, Scarlett has truly been one of the most memorable and rewarding collaborations of my career.”
In September, Johansson said she was looking forward to “continuing our collaboration in years to come,” and a Disney spokesman mentioned their work on Tower of Terror. Most recently, Marvel has announced a second season of What If…?, Echo, and Agatha: Coven of Chaos for Disney+.
