“I have no plans to return as Natasha,” Scarlett said during an interview with Fatherly.

“I feel really satisfied with this film,” she continued. “It feels like a great way to go out for this chapter of my Marvel identity.”

Scarlett had previously confirmed that this would be her last time playing Black Widow and called her final performance as the character “bittersweet.”

However, in her interview the actress added that she was still interested in finding another role in the MCU.

“I would love to be able to continue to collaborate with Marvel in other ways because I think there’s just an incredible wealth of stories there,” she said. “Re-imagining this genre is something that I find very interesting. I think there’s a lot of opportunities to tell these stories in different ways than audiences have come to expect.”

She also discussed what it was like making Black Widow.

“The process of making Black Widow, it was very different. It’s the first film that I’ve produced and my experience, really from conception to what you guys are all seeing now — was absolutely fulfilling and creatively fulfilling, and also personally, really just very fulfilling. Everything was possible because strangely, you would think that the timeline would be sort of limiting in a way, because you were kind of going backwards, but because of Natasha’s ultimate fate, it actually made it in some ways daunting, but it felt limitless in some ways,” she said.

“Because it didn’t have to lead us anywhere. It wasn’t like we had to tie up a bunch of loose ends, or we were introducing another kind of storyline or multi-verse or anything like that. We could really make it very much about her person and her own personal journey,” she explained.

Fans can watch Black Widow in theaters or on Disney+.
