Scarlett Johanson is pushing for a girl-power Marvel movie.
The Black Widow actress was the first female superhero to join the Avengers team. Johanson entered MCU in the Iron Man sequel and eventually fought alongside the Avengers as a core member. Since then, many female characters have joined the Marvel Universe including Captain Marvel, Black Panther‘s Okoye, and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora, to name a few.
In Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, many of these superwomen joined together to take on Thanos and his army. The all-female scenes were a big hit with fans and now, Johanson is backing an all-female Marvel movie.
“I don’t know what my future is in that world. Obviously, it’s a little more opaque for my character,” Johansson told Variety. “But that group of actresses is so incredibly powerful and when they come together, it’s explosive and unstoppable. So yes, I’m pushing for that. I think audiences want it and I’m definitely one of them.”
Scarlett Johanson will star as Black Widow in her first solo movie on May 1, 2020.
