The topic “Marvel Wants Robert Downey Jr. & Scarlett Johansson In Another ‘Avengers’ Movie” has two versions, a written version, and a video version below the written version.
It appears that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not yet ready to part ways with two of its most beloved superheroes. According to recent buzz, Disney may be considering a bold move to revitalize the MCU by bringing back Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson.
Disney’s Bob Iger recently expressed concern that the Marvel TV universe could overshadow the big screen, causing a “diluted focus and attention.” As a result, insiders at Variety have suggested that Marvel may be planning to bring back two fan-favorite heroes.
A recent report hints at a possible reunion of the original Avengers team for an upcoming movie, which could see Robert Downey Jr. return as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. Fans will remember that both of these characters died in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.
Why Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson’s potential Marvel return is tricky
In the world of comic books, death may not always be the end for certain characters. Thanks to plot devices like the Multiverse, characters can make unexpected returns, regardless of how final their exits may seem. Nonetheless, reviving such characters comes with a significant financial cost. For example, Robert Downey Jr. was reportedly paid around $25 million for his role in Iron Man 3.
Marvel’s crossover event, Secret Wars, will unite characters from various universes. In this context, the experience and leadership of Iron Man and Black Widow will be crucial for the Avengers. Michael Waldron will write the script for the upcoming Marvel Studios film, Avengers: Secret Wars, but the director is yet to be announced.
