"Yes, I’m done, Chapter is over": Robert Downey Jr is Not the Only Star From 'Iron Man' Who Does Not Want to Return to MCU

Over the years, MCU was able to build one of the most successful franchises in cinema history and the Infinity Saga would witness some of the most beloved superheroes in the modern era come together. However, many of the actors who brought these characters to life are now officially done with the MCU, including Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr, who has no intentions of reprising the role of Tony Stark.

But it seems that Robert Downey Jr. isn’t the only star from the Iron Man franchise, who isn’t interested in returning to the MCU, as Scarlett Johansson also opened up about her viewpoint on the subject.

Scarlett Johansson brushed off the possibility of her return to the MCU

While appearing on The Goop Podcast alongside her MCU costar Gwyneth Paltrow, the Iron Man 2 actress shared her viewpoint regarding her future with the MCU. Despite the rumors surrounding various MCU heroes’ return to their respective roles in the upcoming Avengers films, it seems that Scarlett Johansson will not be among the ones to reprise their role. The actress clarified that she is now officially done with the MCU chapter in her life and is ready to move on. She said,

“I’m done. Yes, I’m done… Chapter is over. I did all that I had to do. Also, coming back and playing a character again and again like that, over a decade of time, is such a unique experience.”

Even though the Jojo Rabbit actress has no plans of reprising the role of Natasha Romanoff in the future, she hasn’t backed away from expressing her love for her wonderful journey as Black Widow.

You know, whenever I get talking to him about something or whatever… an idea, or a project, or even something like… We both are huge Disney [Parks] nerds and we talk about whatever’s going on at the parks and stuff like that.”
