Scarlett Johansson is a highly acclaimed and celebrated performer of modern times. She is widely recognized for her portrayal of Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and her elegant looks make her a crowd favorite. However, her solo movie, Black Widow, failed to impress her fans and received negative feedback and poor box office performance. Despite this, Johansson is one of the highest-paid actresses and has starred in many blockbuster films and franchises. Additionally, she was offered a chance to work alongside Tom Cruise in his multi-billion dollar Mission: Impossible franchise, but it ultimately did not come to fruition due to various reasons.
Scarlett Johansson, a highly acclaimed actress who has been ranked among the top 100 most influential people in the world and was also the highest-paid actress for a number of years, almost had a shot at starring in the popular Mission: Impossible franchise. With her immense talent and hard work, she has made a remarkable name for herself in the industry and has reached the pinnacle of success.
For her and MCU fans alike, her involvement in the multi-billion-dollar franchise was a dream come true and a major milestone in her career. Despite having a standalone movie, it could not match the massive success of the franchise.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, the actress was questioned about her decision to decline the role in Mission: Impossible 3. According to her, she had a great bond with Tom Cruise and put in a lot of effort into the project. However, they couldn’t reach an agreement regarding their contract, and it’s unfortunate that things didn’t work out. Despite that, she spoke highly of Tom and even visited one of the Scientology centers with him. She wasn’t new to working with Scientologists, so she had some knowledge about it. She stated that Tom was genuinely passionate about it, and as a co-worker, she wanted to understand what motivates him.
Despite their close bond, the anticipated romantic pairing of the two did not come to fruition, much to the disappointment of fans. Additionally, Scarlett Johansson’s departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe was not as grandiose as some had hoped.
The disappointment of fans was palpable when Scarlet Johansson’s individual movie, Black Widow, did not perform as well as previous solo movies despite her character’s role as Natasha Romanoff being a perfect fit for one of the Avengers. The film had a massive budget of $200 million but only managed to earn $379 million worldwide.
However, now that Johansson has more control over her career, she has some exciting projects lined up, including producing the Apple TV+ movie Project Artemis, after her time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes to an end. Fans can expect to see her in diverse roles as she continues to make her mark in the industry.
