Scarlett Johansson has been busy moving on from the billion-dollar MCU franchise and has already signed up for two other equally grand and famous franchises, Transformers, and Jurassic World. Slated to helm the upcoming Jurassic World movie, an apparent reboot of the long-running dinosaur saga, the actress has some big boots to fill.

Previously helmed by her Marvel co-star Chris Pratt, the last outing of Pratt in the dinosaur world was not as well-received. Yet, one thing stood out the most, the primary villain of Jurassic World: Dominion who was, as per fans, fashioned on Apple CEO Tim Cook. And the upcoming flick starring Johansson will face a tough challenge topping the same.

Jurassic World: Dominion, the last flick of the dinosaur saga was a huge commercial success, grossing $1.004 billion worldwide (via The Numbers), even though it was not a critical success. But what stood out in the film was the movie’s main antagonist, portrayed by Campbell Scott.

Starring as Dr. Lewis Dodgson, Scott’s resemblance to Apple CEO Tim Cook is uncanny. From his physical resemblance to the way he speaks and dresses, it was fans who first noticed this coincidence (see Reddit). Even his office, aka the evil lair, was, according to fans, designed like Apple’s headquarters.

Some fans even stated that Scott’s villain was designed to look like every other capitalist billionaire CEO ever, such as Elon Musk or Mark Zuckerberg. While these are just unconfirmed speculations and fan assumptions, they do certainly add an interesting layer to the character.

With Scarlett Johansson stepping into the lead role for the upcoming Jurassic World 4, the expectations are certainly high. While fans are eager to see how what she brings to the franchise, the upcoming film will certainly face the challenge of creating a villain as iconic as Dr. Lewis Dodgson.

Scarlett Johansson’s Jurassic World 4 has been busy gearing up for production. After Johansson, actors like Bridgerton’s Jonathan Bailey, Rupert Friend, Mahersahala Ali, and more have joined the cast of the upcoming flick. Slated to start production in mid-June in London, the film has also roped in Netflix star David Iacono in an unconfirmed role.

Previously seen in Prime Video’s season two of The Summer I Turned Pretty, Iacono is fresh off Netflix’s Dead Boy Detectives. Having previously starred in series like Blue Bloods, The Good Doctor, NCIS, and more, it would certainly be great to see Iacono star among such a stellar cast (via THR).

Written by the original screenwriter of Jurassic Park, the movie will be directed by Gareth Edwards. With the story still not revealed, the film is set to bring a fresh storyline with new characters, carrying on the Jurassic World/ Park franchise.
