Scarlett Johansson Updates: Since her introduction in Iron Man 2, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow has been a prominent presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there was a period when we considered having someone else fill in for the character’s iconic black boots.
Scarlett Johansson recently opened out about losing the character of Black Widow and how she feels about the Marvel Cinematic Universe today, ten years later.
It’s worth noting that other actresses were allegedly considered for the role before Scarlett Johansson was cast, including Emily Blunt, who has previously expressed interest in the role.
It’s hard to believe Scarlett Johansson wasn’t the first choice for the role of Black Widow, given how well she played the part. Regardless, this has happened in a number of films. Originally, Eric Stoltz was supposed to play Marty McFly in Back to the Future instead of Michael J. Fox. Several actors were considered for the role of Han Solo before Harrison Ford was cast.

Still, when I think about Black Widow, I can’t see anybody else playing her except Johansson, just as I can’t imagine anyone else playing Tony Stark than Robert Downey Jr. Florence Pugh may one day take on the role of Black Widow, and I enjoyed her performance in her solo endeavor. But psychologically separating the phrases “Black Widow” and “Scarlett Johansson” will be difficult for me. At least for a short period of time.
