Scarlett Johansson feels Black Widow "is so different from any other Marvel film that we've ever done so far."

Grab your tissues, MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fans! Scarlett Johansson may have just confirmed that Black Widow will indeed be her swan song as the beloved Natasha Romanoff during a recent appearance on Good Morning America to promote the Cate Shortland directorial. During the candid chat, which included Scarlett quipping about how her husband Colin Jost is "spoiler averse" to Marvel secrets, the 36-year-old actress admitted how it's "bittersweet" for her to say goodbye to her fan-favourite character.

While in the MCU, it's a never say never attitude, with Tom Hiddleston and Paul Bettany's respective returns in Loki and WandaVision being the most recent best examples, there's a sense of 'likely' finality when it comes to Johansson's appearance in Black Widow. When asked if it was hard to leave Nat behind, Scarlett confessed, "I think it's bittersweet. I've had an incredible decade working with my Marvel family. I’m going to miss not seeing them every 18 months or two years, like those kind of milestones I always really look forward to."

"But I feel really proud of this film [Black Widow] and I think it's great to go off in a, go out on a high note. This movie is so different from any other Marvel film that we've done so far. So yeah, like I said, it's bittersweet." Johansson concluded.

From Iron Man 2 to Black Widow, Scarlett's MCU journey has surely been a wild roller coaster ride!
