Scarlett Johansson Talks Angelina Jolie Joining Marvel Universe

Scarlett Johansson is dishing on the future of Marvel!

The 34-year-old actress announced at the 2019 Comic-Con on Saturday (July 20) that her Avengers character Black Widow will be getting a standalone movie, which is scheduled to hit theaters on May 1, 2020.

“I’m very excited about it, and I have to say, I was nervous coming here because we’re in the middle of shooting right now,” Scarlett shared with E! News. “So it’s not a time that you could ever share anything with anybody on any side of the movie, particularly in this universe, where everything is just so huge and the pressure’s on. But I’m really, really proud of what we showed today.”

Scarlett then went on to talk about how excited she is about all the powerhouse women involved in Marvel projects – including Angelina Jolie.

“It was amazing. I mean, there’s a lot of women up there that I hugely admire — Angelina, Salma [Hayek]Rachel [Weisz]Tessa [Thompson]Natalie [Portman],” Scarlett shared. “It’s bananas. I think it’s very exciting. I think it grounds the presence of the MCU in a way. It’s very exciting to see such a diverse group of people. It’s awesome. And it’s about time.”

Angelina Jolie
will be starring in the upcoming The Eternals, scheduled to be out in theaters on November 6, 2020.
