Just because Black Widow is dead in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe it doesn’t mean that Scarlett Johansson won’t work with Marvel anymore after Black Widow releases on July 9 in theaters and on Disney+.
“Marvel is always about new beginnings and Scarlett Johansson is such an amazing partner for us,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said of the actress to ET. “She was a producer on this film. She was the one that brought us our amazing director, Cate Shortland, and I am excited to continue working with her in any way possible if we’re so lucky.”
As far as future MCU additions, Feige is hoping that fan events in “the near future” will be suitable places for cast announcements.
“We’ll see what happens with upcoming gatherings and fan events where we can release more news,” Feige said of when to expect more Marvel news. “I hope sometime in the near future.”
ComingSoon’s Black Widow review says that the film “serves as an interesting piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon” that “is well worth the watch even if you’re just a casual fan.” Beyond a goodbye to Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, the film is “an introduction to several great Marvel heroes and villains as well as an exciting spy flick in its own right.”
