Johansson and Jost got married in an intimate ceremony in October 2020. The couple got engaged in May 2019 after two years of dating. The actress showcased her 11-carat glittering engagement ring that July while taking the stage at San Diego Comic-Con.
In October 2019, Johansson told TV personality Ellen DeGeneres that Jost “killed it” with his “surprising” proposal, which included “a whole James Bond situation.”

On the work front, Scarlett Johansson was last seen heading Marvel’s superhero film ‘Black Widow’. The film is based on her Marvel Cinematic Universe avatar Natasha Romanoff, as well as her superhero alters ego Black Widow. Talking about the film earlier, the actress said Black Widow has moved away from the “hyper-sexualization” which defined it when she first essayed the role in the 2010 blockbuster “Iron Man 2”.
The 36-year-old actress gets her first solo superhero film this year, with “Black Widow” scheduled to release in theatres on July 9. The film was originally slated for release last year but had to be postponed owing to the pandemic.
