The Spider-Man: Homecoming team took a breather for a week or so from production to attend San Diego Comic-Con International 2016. Now, they are back in Atlanta, Georgia, and have resumed filming. It has already been confirmed that the Jon Watts flick will feature Robert Downey, Jr.'s Iron Man. But now, it looks as though another Avengers member could have a cameo appearance!
Before going into detail, I would strongly advise that you take this with not just a grain of salt, but with a spoonful! According to photographer Atlanta Filming, Scarlett Johansson was recently spotted on (or near) the Atlanta set of Spider-Man: Homecoming. This leads us to speculate that her Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, may have a cameo appearance in the July 7, 2017 release. Check out the tweet below!
Well, well… hi Scarlett. What’cha doing here?

First of all, this guy is known not only known for his photography, but also for his sense of humor. So, whether he has seriously seen Johansson or he's just yanking our chain is NOT clear. We even don't have photographic evidence of the assertion.
But since Spider-Man: Homecoming belongs to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it doesn't seem unreasonable at all. Apart from the first two Avengers movies, Black Widow has appeared in Iron Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War. So, it wouldn't be too surprising if we get to see her in the first standalone movie for Tom Holland's webslinger.
We might not have photos of Scarlett Johansson from the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming, but we definitely have a bunch featuring Holland in his superhero outfit. He's got his backpack over his shoulders, which indicates that he's on his way to school. Here are the photos for you (via Just Jared)!
