Last night, Disney hosted a special screening event for “The Marvels” in Las Vegas where Kevin Feige addressed the recent rumors that Marvel was considering bringing back older characters like Iron Man and Black Widow.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight (ET) Feige said the following:
ET: “One specific thing I want to ask you that was in the headlines is this idea that some fallen Avengers could make their return, anything you can say about that? I know the answer…”
Feige: “No? Is that the answer?”
Feige: “Hmm….fallen Avengers returning. I literally have not even seen that, is that a new rumor?”
ET: “Yeah, it was, like, one of the things that was talked about at this retreat where Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. were possibly returning at some point.”
Feige: “We did not discuss that at the retreat. Is the truth. We’re doing a project with Scarlett. I love Robert, he’s a part of the family. But in terms of returning, we’ll have to see.”
As of now, nothing has been confirmed about the return of these characters. Back in November 2021, Feige revealed that a “Top Secret” Marvel project was in development with Scarlett Johansson that’s unrelated to Black Widow.
All 3 Iron-Man movies and Black Widow are available to stream now on Disney+.
