Ever since she was sprung into the limelight as a child, Scarlett Johansson's influence has spread like wildfire. These days, the actress has an extensive list of projects under her belt that stretch her capabilities in all directions, proving that she is one of the most versatile stars in the business.

She's formed unlikely bonds in foreign lands in Lost in Translation, brought a painting to life in Girl with a Pearl Earring, dabbled in polyamorous relationships in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, practiced her gum-smacking New Jersey drawl in Don Jon, kicked some serious ass in #TheAvengers and most recently, portrayed a 1950s glamour puss in Hail, Caesar!. And that's only scraping the barrel of what Scar Jo has achieved in the past few years alone.

So after recently being crowned as the highest grossing actress ever, what next movies from #ScarlettJohansson can we expect to feast our eyes on in the coming years? Find out below!

1. Sing

Release: December 21, 2016

Role: Ash

The next movie in Scarlett Johansson's repertoire will be utilizing her husky voice, just as in the critically acclaimed Her and the most recent Jungle Book, where she slithered around as Kaa.

In #Sing, she's joined by Matthew McConaughey and Taron Egerton in bringing to life the story of a koala called Buster, who turns to his friends to boost the success of his theater by putting on a singing competition. Sound intriguing? Here's the trailer:

2. Ghost In The Shell

Release: March 31, 2017

Role: The Major

#GhostInTheShell is the greatly anticipated manga adaptation we've all been waiting for. Despite the fair share of white-washing ridicule the project has received around the world regarding the casting, Scarlett Johansson stars as Major Motoko Kusanagi, a human-cyborg hybrid leading special-ops force Public Security Section 9 in a post-Cyberpunk dystopia. Alongside the leading lady, the following actors will also be gracing us with their presence:

  • Rila Fukushima, known for The Wolverine and Arrow, will be starring
  • Michael Pitt will appear as Kuze
  • Juliette Binoche as Dr. Ouelet
  • Pilou Asbæk as Batou

3. Rock That Body

Release: June 23, 2017

Role: Jess

We haven't seen Scarlett Johansson in a comedy movie for a while now, so it's about time that #RockThatBody emerged on the horizon. The actress's next movie also stars Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer and centers on a group of pals who rent a beach house in Miami for a bachelorette weekend. If The Hangover is anything to go by, it's pretty much a given that things won't go to plan.

4. Avengers: Infinity War

Release: May 4, 2018

Role: Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow

If you thought Captain America: Civil War was big, you ain't seen nothing yet. The Avengers are gearing up to assemble yet again in 2018 and as always, Scarlett Johansson is expected to reprise her role as #BlackWidow in the #Marvel blockbuster.

There are no doubts that #InfinityWar, billed as a two-part extravaganza, will up the superhero ante when it comes out – especially considering approximately 67 characters from the #MCU are expected to show up over the course of the movies.
