Marvel’s Kevin Feige Expresses Desire to ‘Continue Working’ with Scarlett Johansson Despite Black Widow’s Fate: What Lies Ahead for the Star?

Does Scarlett Johansson still have a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige didn’t rule out whether Black Widow, out July 9, marks the final bow from Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff in a Tuesday interview with Entertainment Tonight β€” but did say he’d love to work with her again.

“Marvel is always about new beginnings and Scarlett Johansson is such an amazing partner for us,” he said. “She was a producer on [Black Widow]. She was the one that brought us our amazing director, Cate Shortland.”

“I am excited to continue working with her in any way possible if we’re so lucky,” added Feige, 48, who is also a producer on the film.

Johansson, 36, first appeared as Natasha Romanoff in 2010’s Iron Man 2, before going on to reprise her role in several other films within the MCU. Her character dies during the events of Avengers: Endgame, sacrificing herself over Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye to retrieve the Soul Stone and help bring back the Thanos (Josh Brolin)-snapped population.
Kicking off Phase Four of the MCU, Black Widow takes place following the events of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and finds assassin Natasha coming to terms with her complex past.
“I’ve had an incredible decade working with my Marvel family,” Johansson said of her time playing the superhero on Monday’s Good Morning America. “I’m going to miss not seeing them every 18 months or two years, like those kind of milestones I always really look forward to.
” She added of Black Widow, “But I feel really proud of this film and I think it’s great to go out on a high note. This movie is so different from any other Marvel film that we’ve done so far, so yeah … it’s bittersweet.”
