Warning: The Following post contains major Avengers: Endgame Spoilers
An Avengers: Endgame theory predicts how Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow could still be alive.
The epic conclusion to the MCU’s twenty-two film infinity saga in Avengers: Endgame seemed to tie up all loose ends unraveled along the franchise’s eleven years of existence. Each of the core six Avengers, including Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, saw the completion of their hero’s journey. In the case of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, her death seemed to finally wipe out the red she had in her ledger.
However, a new theory has risen on the web around the circumstances of Scarlett Johansson’s death that could see the character return in the future MCU films. Check out post below to see the full Avengers: Endgame theory regarding Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow.
At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers returns from his travels through the past satisfied from living out the life he missed out on while doing time as a “Capsicle” as Tony Stark would put it. It’s suggested that he successfully returned the infinity stones back to their respective places in the fragile timeline but, as the Black Widow theory hints, wouldn’t that mean that Scarlett Johansson could come back with him?
Although it has not been confirmed by anyone at Marvel Studios, it is possible that we could see Scarlett Johansson return as Black Widow again in the future. Her long-awaited standalone film is scheduled to start filming soon, but story details remain scarce. Scarlett Johansson first began her Black Widow career in the second-ever MCU movie, 2010’s Iron Man 2. Scarlett Johanson then returned for 2012’s The Avengers, which saw her become a fan-favorite MCU character.
What do you think about this new Avengers: Endgame theory? Do you believe that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow could still be alive and make her return in the future of the MCU? Sound off in the comments below!
Avengers: Endgame serves as both a follow up to Avengers: Infinity War as well as the conclusion to the twenty-two films that came before. Marvel will officially end Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home this July.
Here is the plot synopsis for Avengers: Endgame, featuring Scarlett Johansson’s return as Black Widow after Infinity War:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers:Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Brolin.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
