We can argue that one of the best friendships in the MCU is between Chris Evans' Steve Rogers and Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff as they have great chemistry together which started in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and have bonded a lot since then as they're both the prime members of the Avengers. Now that their run in the MCU is apparently done, there are some who are wondering if they'll ever team up again. Fortunately, it looks like it will happen soon.

According to Deadline, Evans and Johansson are set to star in a movie titled Project Artemis. The plot details are under wraps for now, but it is apparently set against the space race. Ozark star Jason Bateman is attached to direct. Rose Gilroy writes the screenplay. Apple won the rights to the project.

However, before they were attached to Project Artemis, they were previously supposed to star in another Apple film called Ghosted. Johansson, unfortunately, dropped out due to scheduling conflicts and was replaced by Ana de Armas. Production is currently ongoing for the film. Because of this, Project Artemis is now officially Evans and Johansson's first reunion project after their run in the MCU.

This new project also comes after Apple won Best Picture at the 94th Academy Awards last Sunday night for CODA. The streamer is also the home for a lot of high-profile projects including the aforementioned Ghosted, Ryan Reynolds-Will Ferrell musical Spirited, Will Smith's next film Emancipation, and many more.

It is great to hear that Evans and Johansson are working together again on a film and, with the behind-the-scenes talent involved, it looks like it has a lot of potentials to be great. The report also indicated that the two actors have been wanting to work together again on a project following the end of their MCU run and it seems like they have found the right one where they want to work together assuming that there won't be any scheduling conflicts again that would prevent it.
