Scarlett Johansson has added her backing to the growing calls for an all-female Marvel film. Johansson plays Black Widow in the MCU, and she’ll reprise the character once again in the title role of the 2020 movie Black Widow.
After Brie Larson — who plays Captain Marvel in the MCU said last week that she and a number of her female co-stars had recently held talks with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about an all-female film, Johansson has now confirmed her interest in helping to make the project a reality.
“I don’t know what my future is in that world. Obviously, it’s a little more opaque for my character,” Johansson she said, referencing Black Widow’s death during Avengers: Endgame.
“But that group of actresses is so incredibly powerful and when they come together, it’s explosive and unstoppable,” Johansson continued. “So yes, I’m pushing for that. I think audiences want it and I’m definitely one of them.”
Feige has expressed an interest in producing an all-female Marvel film, but he has yet to greenlight any such project.
