Scarlett Johansson has likely taken her final bow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
On Friday, the long-awaited “Black Widow” hit theaters featuring the 36-year-old actress as Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow, a super-spy known for teaming up with the Avengers.
The star appeared as the character in nine films, including “Black Widow” and an uncredited cameo in “Captain Marvel.”
With the movie now in theaters – with hopes of becoming the most successful pandemic era box office hit – Johansson said she’s ready to hang up her hat in the franchise.
“I feel really satisfied with this film,” the Oscar nominee continued. “It feels like a great way to go out for this chapter of my Marvel identity.”
Johansson’s departure makes sense, as her character famously perished in 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame.” “Black Widow” is set a few years in the past as an on-the-run Natasha returns home to confront her past and a brand new enemy.
While she’s finished with on-screen appearances, the star is open to continue to work with Marvel Studios in other ways.
