Scarlett Johansson's Marvel Project is 'Still Happening'
In talking with ComicBook.com, Scarlett Johansson confirmed that the Marvel project she's producing is "still happening:"
"Yes. 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.”
It's important to note that Johansson's new Marvel Studios enterprise has nothing to do with her character, Natasha Romanoff.
Not only did Feige acknowledge this when announcing her new role as producer in 2021, but the actress confirmed as much herself in a recent interview, saying she is definitively "done" playing Black Widow.
What Is Scarlett Johansson's New Marvel Project?
Apart from the ongoing Writer's Guild of America strike, the reason why Scarlett Johansson's Marvel project has taken this long to develop is unknown.
Audiences also don't know just what her Marvel Studios undertaking involves and if she's producing an MCU movie, a Disney+ series, a special presentation, or a Disney+ documentary.
If it happens to be the latter, she wouldn't be the first.
Shortly before announcing her own MCU retirement, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 star Zoe Saldana executive produced MPower for Disney+, a docuseries highlighting female MCU heroes both on and off-screen.
Hopefully, both Marvel Studios and Johansson will have more to share about her new Marvel role in the near future.
Black Widow is available to stream on Disney+.
