Every Upcoming Scarlett Johansson Movie We’re Excited For
Stars that shine bright like Scarlett Johansson cannot be stopped. Here are her upcoming projects we are excited for.
Any actor in the industry today has elements of their career that make them a household name. Whether it be the roles they played or their presence off-screen, when they’re a star, we just stand back and watch them shine. Scarlett Johansson has had many moments throughout her career that people remember her for. From the witty and fun romantic comedy to her iconic role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is safe to say that Johansson was made for the big screen.
Of course, we all mourn the loss of Natasha Romanoff in the MCU. However, with one chapter of her career closing, more doors begin to open as we look ahead to what’s next for Johansson. Being the versatile actress that we all know her to be, Johansson will be dipping her feet into some family movies as well as some eye-catching dramas. She’s even set to star opposite Chris Evans again. If you want to keep your eye out for what’s coming up for the actress, we have put together a list of the upcoming Scarlett Johansson movies we are excited for.
Asteroid City — Late 2022 or Early 2023
Starting off strong, we have the upcoming Wes Anderson film Asteroid City. The film is, per IndieWire, about families and students coming together to attend the Junior Stargazer convention in an American desert town in the mid-1950s. Other than that, there are not many details out about the plot or characters of this film, but by just looking at the cast, it is going to be one to look out for. Of course, Johansson will be in this movie. Alongside her, we have some other prominent names including It actress Sophia Lillis, Maya Hawke, Tony Revolori, Margot Robbie, Tom Hanks, and Steve Carell (who replaced Bill Murray amidst his COVID diagnosis).
The Jungle Book 2 — Release Date TBD
When it comes to the live-action remakes of classic Disney films, 2016’s The Jungle Book is definitely one of the best. Now, we’ve been sitting on this one for a few years, and it looks like we are going to have a wait a while longer. According to Cinema Blend, The Jungle Book 2, the sequel to the first live-action film, was meant to release between 2017 and 2019, with Jon Favreau returning to direct after he wrapped on The Lion King. That’s evidently not the case anymore; however, it is safe to say we should expect some of our favorite characters and voices to return. In fact, we should count on Johansson making her return as Kaa.
Bride — Release Date TBD
She lives! Johansson is cast to be in the film Bride. This film takes from The Bride of Frankenstein: a woman is crafted to be the picture-perfect wife. When her creator is left unsatisfied, she is forced to navigate a world that sees her as a monster. Other than the film being directed by Sebastián Lelio, there is not much else we know about the joint-Apple and A24 production. Make sure you stay up to date with all the new developments surrounding this exciting project.
Little Shop of Horrors — Release Date TBD
Little Shop of Horrors is a favorite among musical fans. The original film came out in 1986, so you can best believe that we are all due for a remake, or maybe even a sequel. The story follows Seymour, who is interested in his co-worker Audrey. Well, Seymour acquires Audrey II, a plant that has an appetite for human flesh that is pretty much insatiable. COVID placed a big bump in the road for this film. However, there is still hope to get things back on track. Johansson and Chris Evans are involved in the project, and we cannot wait.
Project Artemis — Release Date TBD
What is Project Artemis about? Not sure yet, but there is the element of space involved, so if that is something that appeals to you, stay up to date with this one. Evans and Johansson were supposed to be teaming up once again in this project. However, Channing Tatum has been entered as Evans’s replacement in the film.
