So much is left unknown regarding the future of ‘Black Widow’ following the events of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers 4’ Black Widow herself Scarlett Johansson spoke about the potential events of the film when asked in a recent interview. Johansson said:
“It’s such a loaded question. Yes, I would want to in the right context and for the film to fit where I’m at, where I am in my life. I mean I’ve played this character for a long time. It’s been probably like 8 years or more, and so much has happened in my life, my life as a performer and happened in my life personally.”
Johansson continued, saying:
“I love playing this character. And I think there is definitely an opportunity to explore the Widow as a woman who has kind of come into her own and is making independent and active choices for herself probably for once in her life. You know she hasn’t always had that possibility so if it fit that criteria then yes I would want to do it.”
Black Widow makes her next on-screen appearance in ‘Avengers 4,’ which opens in theaters on May 3, 2019.
