The Jojo Rabbit actress plays the role of Natasha Romanoff, who is one of the members of the Avengers. Though her character sacrifices herself in Avengers: Endgame, with the whole multiversal theory, anything is possible now.
As per Giant Freakin Robot, a source has claimed that Scarlett Johansson is going to return as Black Widow in Avengers: Secret Wars. They have also said that a new timeline version of the character might pop up to help stop Kang or whatever other Marvel villains the studio will introduce by then.

However, it is also said that the actress may produce a Black Widow series for the studios. Neither of these claims has been confirmed or denied by Marvel or Scarlett yet.
