Scarlett Johansson celebrated the launch of the Black Widow spin-off film, but it’s not becoming a franchise. She is content with what she has done with the role and Johansson’s days as Black Widow are done.
While talking to People, the actress confirmed that she has “no plans to return as” Black Widow. Scar Jo is happy about what she’s been able to achieve at Marvel, and she has no plans to continue on with the role.
“I feel really satisfied with this film. It feels like a great way to go out for this chapter of my Marvel identity.”
She is not returning as Black Widow, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility that she will continue working with Marvel in the future. There are a few projects that she might be interested in having a different kind of hand in.
I would love to be able to continue to collaborate with Marvel in other ways because I think there’s just an incredible wealth of stories there. Re-imagining this genre is something that I find very interesting.”
Scarlett Johansson is able to keep many projects in the air at once in this stage of her career. Black Widow is a character she is done with, so we can write her out of any future Marvel comebacks. That doesn’t rule out getting involved in some other facet within the MCU. Unlike Robert Downey Jr, she isn’t unfriending the Avengers just yet.
