“Chapter is over” – Scarlett Johansson reveals she is ‘done’ playing MCU’s Black Widow


American actress, Scarlett Johansson has shut down speculation of a possible return to playing Marvel Cinematic Universe’ Black Widow.

While the actress has declared that she is “done” playing Black Widow, Gwyneth Paltrow hasn’t quite come to the conclusion that her time as Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is over.

Johansson appeared as a guest on Paltrow’s The Goop Podcast, according to Variety, where the two discussed their time in the MCU and the potential development of their characters.

While Pepper Potts, who we last saw after the events of Avengers: Endgame, is still out in the world, Black Widow, who gave her life to save everyone and everything in Endgame, finally received her prequel film.

It goes without saying that some incarnation of Black Widow appearing in a future film or television program wouldn’t be out of the question, particularly with all the multiverse antics going on in the MCU.

She has no desire to rejoin this universe, despite the fact that she sued Disney and possibly as a result of some baggage.

“I’m done,” Johansson said. “Chapter is over. I did all that I had to do. Also coming back and playing a character again and again, over a decade of time, is such a unique experience.”

Paltrow was hesitant to definitively state that she was through with the MCU when Johansson afterward questioned if she was.

“I think so. I mean, I didn’t die so they can always ask me,” Paltrow said.

“I think you may come back at some point,” Johansson replied.

“Really?” Paltrow said. “A 64-year-old Pepper Potts? How great.”

“100% that’s happening,” Johansson concluded. “I can see it. They’re never gonna let you go. Break out that wig, baby.”

Johansson and Paltrow also addressed the rumored conflict between the two on the Iron Man 2 set and refuted it.

“Is that a rumor?” Johansson asked. “You were so nice to me on that movie. I was so petrified. You were so nice to me! You could’ve been awful. I was so out of my comfort zone on that movie. I’d never done anything like that before. Plus, you had established such deep friendships.”

Paltrow continued, saying the entire Iron Man ensemble was “so psyched [Johansson] was there” and that she was “so happy to have another woman around.”
