Just a month ago, Kevin Feige announced that he was working with Scarlett Johansson on an untitled project for Marvel Studios. She is moving on to a new role s producer after her first solo outing in Black Widow. There has been a lot of speculation as to what project this might be about, such as a film inspired by the comic series A-Force or a spin-off to Black Widow movie. In a recent interview with Collider, Johansson shared her motivations for being a producer for multiple films as well as working for Marvel.
I have worked for 30 years, which is insane when I say it out loud, but I think I just understand the efficiency of how productions run and how you thin the fat on a production and make things well oiled.Scarlett Johansson
With that much experience, it seems like a natural move to tackle a project as a producer, and it seems that the freedom Marvel Studios offers is exactly the kind of thing
As far as Marvel goes, it’s like working with family there. Marvel has some of the best IP ever and you can really dream big there and nothing’s ever off the table and you kind of throw all these blue sky ideas around and see what sticks. It’s like a creative playground that’s just like a dream. Again, I have that shorthand with my fellow creatives there that comes from being in the world for 10 years with those guys.Scarlett Johansson
Sadly, she still doesn’t give away what project she is working on, but she certainly seems excited about tackling the new project. Of course, it seems very likely that she’s tackling a film next, but there is a chance a Disney+ series is also involved in some capacity. Some Marvel Studios actors have been moving into producing or even directing roles and it’ll be interesting to see who else might join her.
