'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier': Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow might just swoop in for a cameo
This leads us to speculate if she will be seen in some capacity in the series through flashbacks
We may not have seen the last of Scarlett Johansson in the MCU yet. And we're not talking about 'Black Widow'.
In what comes as an interesting piece of news, We Got This Covered reported that sources close to the site have said the actor is in talks with Marvel about returning in 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier'. These were reportedly the same sources who told the site about Disney+ shows, 'She-Hulk' and 'Ms Marvel' and also Karen Gillian being looked at to be a part of 'Pirates of the Caribbean 6'. With all of these proving to be correct, odds are this news of Johansson in the series might be a possibility too.
This leads us to speculate if she will be seen in some capacity in the series through flashbacks. The episode may probably look at the time when she was on the run with Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) and Sam Wilson/ The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) after the events of 'Captain America: Civil War'.
It also remains to be seen if her cameo is borrowed from Will Corona Pilgrim's prelude comic ahead of 'Avengers: Infinity War' where Widow along with Cap and Falcon go on missions in Syria and Lebanon. This, of course, is pure speculation if Johansson indeed gets the green light to be part of the upcoming Disney+ series. The site also adds Marvel and Johansson have only been on talks so far and a concrete answer might not come anytime soon.
As far as the movie update of 'Black Widow' goes, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic saw the release date of the film pushed to November 6, 2020. The official synopsis reads: "In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller 'Black Widow,' Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises.

Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz is Melina. Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, 'Black Widow' — the first film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — hits US theaters on November 6, 2020."
