For months, there have been major speculation and hearsay surrounding the Marvel actress' decision to sue the company that pretty much elevated her career to the next level and made her a household name in Hollywood. Some reports claim that Johansson was all after the money while others say that she wanted to extend her tenure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now, after months of leaving fans clueless, Scarlett is finally clearing the air following the controversy which many believe almost cost the actress her career. Speaking with the Associated Press during an American Cinematheque event held in her honor, the Natasha Romanoff actress said that it was all about standing up for herself. She explains: "It’s important in general to know your own worth and stand up yourself."

Now that the dust has finally settled, it would be safe to assume that the door is once again open for Scarlett to come back to the MCU. And while Natasha is already dead in the current franchise continuity, the Multiverse could definitely play a major factor in her potential comeback. As it stands, we still don't know what the future holds for her Marvel career so I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens next.

Meanwhile, Black Widow is available for streaming on Disney+.
