Scarlett Johansson's tenure as a Marvel movie star has come to an end. Scarlett Johansson is one of the most famous actresses in the world starring in Hollywood Blockbuster movies such as Lost in Transition (2003), Match Point(2005), Vicky Christina Barcelona (2008), and Lucy(2014).

Johansson was a guest on "The Goop Podcast". During the interview with Gwyneth Paltrow on "The Goop Podcast", the two actresses reflected on their time starring in Marvel films and shared whether they will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future. The American actress announced that Black Widow, the movie she's best known for, will mark the end of her time in the Marvel Universe.

Johansson's black widow died in 2019 Avengers: Endgame, but returned for the stand-alone prequel movie Black Widow.

The release of Black Widow was postponed due to the pandemic, but when it was simultaneously released in theaters and on Disney+, the actress filed a lawsuit, asserting that when she signed the deal, the film was guaranteed an exclusive theatrical release and that her contract was violated when it was released on the streaming service. The complaint also claimed that Disney didn't try to change the terms of the agreement. Disney claimed at the time that Johansson received $20 million for the movie. Johansson and Disney eventually settled the breach of contract lawsuit over her pay.

At the time of the settlement with Disney, she said in a statement, "I am happy to have resolved our differences with Disney. I'm incredibly proud of the work we've done together over the years and have greatly enjoyed my creative relationship with the team. I look forward to continuing our collaboration in the years to come."

However, in her appearance on "The Good Life podcast", the actress said she will no longer be playing Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow.

"Doing Avengers was so much fun, I was 2 years old, I was single, it was fun," Johansson recalled when she first appeared in the movies, describing it all as an "adult summer camp". Similar thoughts were expressed by Paltrow who said it was "fun to be in something that resonated so deeply with people culturally". 

The actress confirmed the chapter has come to an end when Paltrow asked whether she was done with Marvel. "I'm done", Johansson said. "Chapter is over. I kind of did all that I had to do. Also, coming back and playing a character again and again like that, over a decade, is such a unique experience", she added.
