Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were thrilled when news broke out that Scarlett Johansson is returning to reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff, also known as Black Widow. Johansson’s return comes after her character’s untimely demise in Avengers: Endgame, back in 2019. She’s now set to bring the character back to life on three upcoming Marvel movies.

Scarlett Johansson is Set to Reprise Her Role as Black Widow

Johansson was the actress who played Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and will reportedly be making a comeback as Natasha Romanoff in three upcoming Marvel movies. Sources close to the matter have confirmed that Johansson will reprise her role as the deceased Avenger in future films. Although the titles of the movies she will appear in have yet to be announced.

This news is lining with Marvel’s efforts to bring back the original stars of the franchise for cameos. Additionally to provide continuity as well. Johansson’s MCU return may signal a continuation of the studio’s legacy-building from earlier films.

While it is still unclear which movies Johansson will be appearing in, it is highly likely that she will be featured in the upcoming Avengers movies, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. These two films are scheduled to be released in 2025 and 2026, respectively, marking the climax of the Multiverse Saga.

As for the third movie that Johansson will appear in, there are a few possibilities. Captain America: New World Order, which will reportedly feature Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, could be one option. Another potential candidate is Thunderbolts. Yelena Belova and also Red Guardian, Black Widow’s sister and father respectively, will appear in Thunderbolts as antiheroes.

Theories on Bringing Back Black Widow

Johansson’s upcoming return to the MCU has sparked a flurry of fan theories and speculation. Given that the character she plays is deceased in the story, we can look at the possible ways the filmmakers can bring her back.

One possible answer could lie in the use of the multiverse or time travel. With the upcoming Multiverse Saga, which will feature the villain Kang the Conqueror, it’s possible that parallel versions of heroes and deceased characters will be involved.

Another possibility is her possible appearance as part of the Thunderbolts team or in the Captain America: New World Order. Which will reportedly bring back Chris Evans as Steve Rogers. While we don’t know the specifics yet, it’s clear that Johansson’s return to the MCU opens up a variety of exciting possibilities for the future of the franchise.
