The best thing about Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost getting engaged is that ScarJo can keep her press-given nickname, if she chooses to take his name. Just kidding, it’s probably the love or whatever. Johansson’s publicist confirmed the news to the Associated Press on Sunday. No date has been set, but Jost is on hiatus right now, so a quick elopement before season 45 isn’t the worst idea. The couple made their first public appearance in 2017 and most recently attended the premiere of Endgame together. It will be his first marriage and her third. Johansson was previously wed to Ryan Reynolds and French journalist–art consultant Romain Dauriac. She has a daughter with Dauriac. No word on where the wedding will take place, but CoJo knows some great spots in the Hamptons.
We know that Marvel is working on developing a Black Widow film. We don’t know much about the film, but we do know that Scarlett Johansson will be returning as Natasha Romanova and according to Omega Underground, the film will begin production on February 28, 2019. We also know that Cate Shortland will be serving as director. While I would normally hope this means that we’ll learn more about the film, I’m not holding out hope for that until June or July of this year, a couple months after the release of Avengers: Endgame.
This production date may also help feed the idea that Katherine Langford will be playing a young Natasha Romanova in Endgame as she just dyed her hair red.
The story is rumored to be set in 2006, which is a couple years prior to the events of Iron Man. The characters Ref Guardian and Taskmaster are also rumored to be a part of the story. There’s also been talk of developing it as an R-rated film.
No release date has been given for Black Widow, but many are speculating it will be the mysterious film set for release on May 1, 2020.
