Scarlett Johansson, best known for the role of Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow which she played for over a decade, has recently won the American Cinematheque Award – an award that’s given annually to “an extraordinary artist in the entertainment industry who is fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion pictures.”
After winning this huge award, many of Johansson’s colleagues approached to congratulate and praise her work. One of them was Kevin Feige, president of Disney’s Marvel Studios and the father of the Marvel Cinematic Universe where Johansson spent 11 years of her career.
“Scarlett has lent her talent and star power to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for over a decade. That she’s chosen to play a key part in it for so many years, I am extremely grateful for. Working with [her] has truly been one of the most memorable and rewarding collaborations of my career.”Kevin Feige
But, something that’s even more interesting, is that Feige also teased a “top secret Marvel Studios project”, which means that Johansson will work at Marvel again, although the said project won’t be related to the character she played, as reported by Deadline. So, Natasha Romanoff is maybe done, but Scarlett Johansson apparently isn’t.
Johansson made her MCU debut in the 2010 movie Iron Man 2. She reprised the role in all four Avengers movies, two Captain America movies, and a post-credit scene of Captain Marvel. She officially said goodbye to Natasha Romanoff in the solo movie Black Widow which was released last summer. Shortly after the release, Johansson sued Disney over the Black Widow’s streaming release on Disney+, but the lawsuit was settled down a few months later outside of court.
This “top secret” project will also make Johansson the first MCU actress to produce the MCU movie.
