New Project Linked to “Black Widow” Under Development? Recent Reports Suggest So

New Project Linked to Black Widow Under Development Recent Reports Suggest So

Scarlett Johansson’s latest MCU role was in the 2021 film “Black Widow.” Directed by Cate Shortland, the movie stars Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz. It follows Natasha as she confronts her past and teams up with her estranged “family” to take down the villainous Red Room organization.

While the film received acclaim for its action scenes, character arcs, and performances, particularly Johansson and Pugh’s, it also sparked a contentious legal battle between Johansson and Disney. In July 2021, Johansson filed a lawsuit against The Walt Disney Company, alleging a breach of contract due to the movie’s simultaneous release in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access. Johansson argued that this release strategy violated her contract, which tied her compensation to the film’s box office performance.

We didn’t expect to hear about another Black Widow project for a couple of reasons: Natasha’s character demise and the ongoing lawsuit. However, recent reports suggest otherwise.

According to recent updates, Scarlett Johansson is collaborating with Disney+ on a confidential project. The hint surfaced through Courtney Baker, a creative executive at Marvel Studios, who updated her LinkedIn profile to reflect her involvement in new developments or roles within the company.

Serve as an executive on the upcoming TV project Untitled Scarlett Johansson series for Disney+.

It’s not much of a shock since both Feige and Scarlett Johansson previously mentioned her involvement in a Marvel-related project.

Scarlett Johansson revealed her participation in a secretive project during an interview with ComicBook in June 2023.

It is still happening, [but] not currently because nothing is happening right now. We’re all sort of in this holding pattern as we wait out the writers’ strike and potentially our own guild strike, and so on and so forth.

Now that most productions have resumed, it’s likely that Scarlett’s secret project is also back on track. However, details about the plot or any other aspects remain scarce, leaving us with little to speculate on.
