‘Black Widow’ Star Scarlett Johansson Pushes For All-Female ‘Avengers’ Film

Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson is the latest actress in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to push for an all-female Avengers movie.

Scarlett Johansson was promoting her new film with Taika Waititi, Jojo Rabbit. Naturally, she was asked about her role as Black Widow in the MCU given her upcoming standalone film as well as the post-Avengers: Endgame slate and the future for the female characters of the MCU. As it turns out, Scarlett Johansson is down for an all-female Avengers movie even if Black Widow is unlikely to appear given her death in Avengers: Endgame.

Here is what Scarlett Johansson had to say about an all-female Avengers movie:

“I don’t know what my future is in that world. Obviously, it’s a little more opaque for my character.  But that group of actresses is so incredibly powerful and when they come together, it’s explosive and unstoppable. So yes, I’m pushing for that. I think audiences want it and I’m definitely one of them.”

Scarlett Johansson joins her fellow Avengers co-stars Brie Larson and Elizabeth Olsen in expressing an interest in seeing a film led by an all-female cast. After all, one of the most memorable scenes in Avengers: Endgame was the sequence in which many of the MCU’s heroines assembled together to bring down Thanos’ army so perhaps audiences are eager to see something along those lines for the entirety of a feature-length film.

Are you with Scarlett Johansson and much of the other MCU actresses in wanting to see an all-female ensemble in an Avengers movie? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest MCU updates.

Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson will reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff in Black Widow. 

Full plot details on Black Widow are being kept under lock and key, though it has been revealed that the film is set after the events of Captain America: Civil War and will see Scarlett Johansson’s Nathasha Romanoff take on the villainous Taskmaster. The film will also mark the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Yelena Belova, the second modern-era character to use the Black Widow title in the comics.

Directed by Cate Shortland from a script written by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, Ray Winstone, Olivier Richters, and Rachel Weisz.

Black Widow is set to hit theaters on May 1, 2020.
