Back in November 2021, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that a “Top Secret” Marvel project was in development with Scarlett Johansson that’s unrelated to Black Widow.
Feige teased the news when Scarlett Johansson became the 35th recipient of the American Cinematheque Award. Feige praised Johansson for her “talent,” “vision,” intelligence and savvy, both as an actress and a producer and also mentioned the “top secret” Marvel project which Johansson will serve as a producer. You can read what Feige said below:
“We are already working with Scarlett on another non-Black Widow related top-secret Marvel Studios project with her as a producer. Scarlett is one of the most talented, versatile and beloved actors of our time. It has truly been a pleasure to work with someone of her caliber. From those epic training sessions preparing for the hallway fight in Iron Man 2, to the around-the-world press tour in Avengers: Endgame to partnering with you as a producer on Black Widow, working with you Scarlett has truly been one of the most memorable and rewarding collaborations of my career.”
No other details were provided about the project but Johansson has confirmed that the project is still in development.
In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Scarlett Johansson said the following:
“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.”
Additional details were shared about the project but Marvel fans are excited about the future possibilities.
