Marvel Studios and Scarlett Johansson are working together on a mystery project that is said to have nothing to do with their Black Widow character.
Corresponding meeting, Marvel boss Kevin Feige teased the studio’s “top secret” project while paying tribute to Johansson in recognition of receiving the American Cinematheque Award Thursday night. He noted that the next collaboration between the studio and the actress “has nothing to do with her MCU character Natasha Romanoff”.
As you’d expect, Feige kept almost all the details about the project under wraps, except that after her role as executive producer on Black Widow, the first film from Phase. 4, the MCU will be producing as the producer for the MCU’s upcoming 4, the beginning of this one Year was published. Feige praised Johansson’s “talent” and “vision” in his speech.
“Scarlett has brought talent and star power to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for over a decade. I’m very grateful that she played a key role for so many years, ”said the MCU producer at the annual awards ceremony. “Work with [her] was really one of the most memorable and rewarding collaborations of my career. “
The announcement of Marvel’s collaboration with Johansson is pretty significant as it follows the lawsuit the actress filed against Disney in July for the Black Widow’s alleged breach of contract due to the film’s release on Disney + at the same time it was in theaters has been published. The Hollywood Reporter later confirmed that the two parties have reached an agreement.

While Black Widow basically rounded out Natasha’s story by setting up her role in Infinity War, she was far more open to the rest of her family. We saw Yelena, Alexei, and Melina rally the surviving widows and retreat into unknown parts before Contessa approached Yelena with a new assignment to hunt and kill Hawkeye in a post-credits scene.
The surprise scene set the stage for the upcoming Hawkeye series, which is due to release its first episode on Disney + on November 24th, just in time for Thanksgiving. After that there will be new episodes every Wednesday. The series follows WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki on Marvel’s live-action Disney + TV show.
