Meeting vigilantes! No, not for yet another release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but for a Jason Bateman film.
According to DeadlineScarlett Johansson and Chris Evans are set to star in the next Apple movie Project Artemis. Their roles have not yet been defined, although the film will take place during the space race.
Bateman may be best known as an actor, but he directed several episodes of ozarkas well as two films, 2015 The fang of the family and 2013 big words. The script comes from Rose Gilroy, who has famous parents in Dan Gilroy and Rene Russo.
Considering that Apple paid $100 million to secure Project Artemis, they clearly have high hopes for the film. There’s no official release date yet, so we figured in the meantime we’d revisit all the movies that Evans and Johansson have starred in together. And yes, there is a lot of Marvel content.

You would think of boasting a premise similar to The breakfast club and Dazed and confused would mean automatic success, but this teen comedy was a huge critical and commercial failure. Evans and Johansson played high school students who aimed to break into the office of an educational testing service in order to steal the answers for an extremely important upcoming exam. Weekly entertainment quoted as “like The breakfast club recast as a video game for simple people,” which really tells you everything you need to know about The perfect score.
nanny diaries (2007)
Based on the 2002 novel of the same name, this comedy-drama starred Johansson as Annie, a college graduate who ends up working for a wealthy family in New York City. Evans complicates matters as a “Harvard Hottie” who lives in the same apartment building and whom Annie begins dating. nanny diaries was a bit of a dud, making just $47 million at the box office (on a surprising $20 million budget). Luckily for Evans and Johansson, they had big tent poles on the way.
The Avengers (2012)
Ahh, the first Avengers movie. It’s been so long now. Evans’ Captain America and Johansson’s Black Widow featured in a massive cast as Nick Fury and SHIELD formed a team of superheroes to stop Thor’s brother Loki from taking over Earth.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
The first sequel to The First Avenger saw Captain America and Black Widow join forces to uncover a conspiracy within SHIELD, while facing off against a mysterious assassin known as Winter Solider (Sebastian Stan). It really is a tough life to be a superhero.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
The first sequel to The Avengers saw Captain America, Black Widow and their friends battle Ultron, an AI obsessed with destroying human life. Age of Ultron is the second most expensive movie ever made, so lucky it made over $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Black Widow featured again in the second Captain America film, with the Avengers going through a major crisis. A disagreement over international oversight saw the team split into two opposing groups, one led by Steve Rogers and the other led by Tony Stark. The world is in danger, superheroes, can’t you all get along?
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Captain America and Black Widow and the rest of the Avengers teamed up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to battle Thanos, who wanted to collect all six Infinity Stones in order to kill half of all life in the universe.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Arguably the best MCU movie of them all, End of Game had a blink and you’ll miss them, but Captain America and Black Widow were definitely there. The surviving members of the Avengers and their allies battled the menacing Thanos, attempting to reverse the destruction caused by Infinity War. There’s a reason Endgame was the highest-grossing movie of all time for a few years.
Captain Marvel (2019)
Johansson and Evans came on (very briefly) for Brie Larson’s first solo movie as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. The action took viewers back to 1995 and followed Danvers’ transformation into Captain Marvel. It was also just in time, with Earth caught in an intense galactic conflict between two warring alien civilizations.
