Natasha Romanoff was killed off in Avengers: Endgame, and the character was given what was promoted as her final send-off in the solo Black Widow prequel movie. Of course, that doesn't mean that she couldn't return to the MCU.

The nature of the Multiverse means that any character (or their Variant, at least) could potentially be brought back, and a recent trade report suggested that Marvel Studios may be considering re-enlisting the likes of Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson to reprise their respective roles.

There had already been rumors that Downey Jr. has been approached to play Tony Stark again (possibly in the upcoming Avengers: Secret Wars), but Johansson had always held firm that she had moved on from Black Widow and had very little interest in revisiting the hero.

In a new interview with The Today Show, Johansson was quizzed about the rumors, and replied: "I feel like that's it, right?" She then joked about returning as a "vampire or zombie" version of Natasha, but when asked outright if she had been offered the chance to play the character again, the actress laughed and moved on to another topic.

Given the current state of the franchise, we'd say there is every chance Kevin Feige has reached out to his former Avengers stars about possibly returning. While another movie focusing only on the original roster of Earth's Mightiest Heroes seems unlikely, they might well pop up for one-off cameos in Secret Wars.

How would you feel about Johansson and her fellow OGs returning to the MCU? Do you think it would ultimately help or hinder the brand? Be sure to drop us a comment down below.

Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy, and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.

Black Widow also stars Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, Olga Kurylenko, William Hurt, Ray Winstone, and Rachel Weisz, and is now streaming on Disney+.

Thats good… choose someone new…
DocSpock - 11/13/2023, 12:35 PM

No more Black Widow. They have come up with a truckload more female characters. Not needed. Not a good idea.

marvel72 - 11/13/2023, 12:54 PM
@DocSpock - They have come up with many but none of them as popular.
The1st - 11/13/2023, 1:02 PM
@DocSpock - Wouldn't mind a Venom Widow variant, but that would go over the head of the casual movie goer.
dragon316 - 11/13/2023, 4:48 PM
@The1st - who don’t read comics yes it could
DarkeyeZ - 11/13/2023, 6:10 PM
@DocSpock - why so much hate towards women?
Gizmoduck - 11/13/2023, 7:41 PM
@The1st - all the internet idiots would cry about how venom is eddie brock, because when they googled venom thats what they got. then claim its woke bs.

The whole miles is not spiderman thing got me so annoyed recently.
DocSpock - 11/13/2023, 8:09 PM
@DarkeyeZ -

??? What are you talking about. I love women.

The1st - 11/14/2023, 12:58 PM
@Gizmoduck - Yup total unnecessary all though I wouldn't mind Gwenom either given they follow up with hiw we got there.
garu - 11/13/2023, 12:37 PM
dear god just [frick]ing move on from these legacy characters and build new ones - it's only the people who play with ScarJo's BW toys while they wait at Target who want her back
MotherGooseUPus - 11/13/2023, 12:40 PM
More ScarJo is NEVER a bad thing. Shes very easy on the eyes and is actually a good actress. If they bring her back, hope its for the right reasons

Doomsday8888 - 11/13/2023, 12:40 PM
I mean the greatest thing they did with the character was...well, killing her, so...
dagenspear - 11/13/2023, 3:03 PM
@Doomsday8888 - Isn't that a showcase of the issues with how they told the story?
mountainman - 11/13/2023, 12:42 PM
Johansson, Downey Jr and Evans have to know that if they come back it runs the risk of tarnishing their legacy. We will see if the money over rides that potential concern or not.
CorndogBurglar - 11/13/2023, 12:50 PM
@mountainman - I personally dont think any of them have done anything of real worth since leaving the MCU.

Evans has been in a couple things that were decent. But I really can't think of anything RDJ or Scarjo have done since then.

So I mean, that probably makes the decision a little easier too.
mountainman - 11/13/2023, 12:51 PM
@CorndogBurglar - Yeah I guess legacy is less important to them than it may be to us.

Downey has Oppenheimer at least.
CorndogBurglar - 11/13/2023, 12:53 PM
@mountainman - Oh yeah, how did I forget that?
The1st - 11/13/2023, 1:03 PM
@mountainman - I dunno, it's like Crisis situation. On situation where I wouldn't mind.

Why when we have Florence Pugh
Goldboink - 11/13/2023, 12:49 PM
@KaptainKhaos -
And Florence is a gem. No need to go back.
harryba11zack - 11/13/2023, 12:49 PM
@KaptainKhaos - her appearance didn't help with the audience view count for that Kate Bishop tv show.
KaptainKhaos - 11/13/2023, 2:34 PM
@harryba11zack - ok
WhatIfRickJames - 11/13/2023, 12:48 PM
She'll come back as a cameo nostalgically in a huge tentpole event, my guess is everyone will, but her as the character in future movies has passed.
ThorArms - 11/13/2023, 12:50 PM
Nah, we good. We have Florence now

Scarlett was great though. I just think it's time to move on
Blastaar - 11/13/2023, 12:51 PM
The actress is not bad, and nice on the eyes, I'll NEVER forget that Avengers scene when she spoke to Loki, that bootay!!! Sheeeesh!!! But it's all the choices with where to take the character and her writing and dialogue(her dialogue was TERRIBLE).
IronMan616 - 11/13/2023, 12:53 PM
Looking at the video, seeing Hannah Waddingham at the end of it, good God, they need to cast her as Lady Dimitrescu in a Resident Evil movie.
GeneralChaos - 11/13/2023, 12:55 PM
I don't know why everyone is acting this wasn't the plan from the start with Secret Wars. Now everyone is acting like it's a desperate move by Marvel.

I could dig up old articles from this website talking about it years ago.
Vigor - 11/13/2023, 1:03 PM
@GeneralChaos - unless you have receipts, they're gonna deny deny deny. And even if you have proof, they will lie lie lie. Haters snd those who intentionally want things to fail (small pp energy), are opportunists and will latch onto anything that appeases their confirmation bias
dagenspear - 11/13/2023, 3:01 PM
@Vigor - Similar comes from the opposite end. If you defend these movies are bash these movies, I think you have a bias.
Vigor - 11/13/2023, 3:11 PM
@dagenspear - personally I know I have a bias. I like the MCU and i like seeing diversity in my media

But I'm not against criticizing where necessary. Like with secret invasion, thor4, thor2.

So I think I have a better say on these things than people like grif or marvel72 or origame who hate all the things before even seeing a trailer
Nomis929 - 11/13/2023, 12:58 PM
Yeah...Time to move along.
ModHaterSLADE - 11/13/2023, 1:03 PM
Just felt like after her character died her movie was a waste of time, wish it happened sooner so we could see her interact with her family more as well as not already know how her story was gonna end.
supermanrex - 11/13/2023, 1:13 PM
Al Rokker doing the fanboys jobs. he was pressing!! lol Feige already confirmed she is involved in a project coming up. what capacity he didnt say. she could be directing or voice work on what if. who knows.
WhateverItTakes - 11/13/2023, 1:23 PM
AllsGood - 11/13/2023, 1:41 PM

The latest Terrifier 3 movie trailer has already been released just when you think you seen everything don't miss the end. Pushing the limits, I don't think so.

bkmeijer1 - 11/13/2023, 2:37 PM
For a second I thought that was Kate McKinnon in the clip.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind seeing her return. I kinda wanna see that universe where Hank Pym killed the Avengers in live-action and the Ultron Won-timeline Black Widow was dropped in.
asherman93 - 11/13/2023, 3:45 PM
I'm not opposed to the idea. I feel more could've been done with her character.
