Black Widow may be Scarlett Johansson’s final turn as Natasha Romanoff, but that doesn’t have to be the last time you see her suit up…kinda.
On June 30, Kate Shumskaya, a Russian model-cosplayer that goes by @Kate_Johansson on TikTok, posted a TikTok of herself eating sushi in Natasha’s suit, and I swear to God, I thought Scarlett Johansson had joined the app. Check out the video, which has 49.5 million views and 5 million likes, and tell me that I’m wrong:
People in the comments section were just as blown away. “She looks more like Johansson than Scarlett,” one user wrote, and got 189,000 likes. Another added, “You’re telling me this ISN’T SCARLETT?”
If you don’t see the resemblance, you may want to book an appointment with your optometrist, because they have almost the exact same button nose, smile, and green eyes! Check the side-by-side:
Considering most of Shumskaya’s videos are dedicated to the Marvel character and her Instagram bio reads “The illegitimate daughter of Scarlett Johansson,” it’s fair to say she sees the resemblance. But she does have something to say to those who describe her as the “Wish” version of the Avengers actor. Well, it’s more of a gesture…
And you haven’t even seen Shumskaya with Natasha’s signature red hair yet!
Frankly, unexpected celebrity lookalikes are some of my favorite content creators on TikTok. Just last week I happened across a Jennifer Aniston impression that made me do a serious double-take. Back in August 2020, Priscila Beatrice went so viral for her Rihanna-esque appearance that the Fenty mogul couldn’t help but weigh in. “Where the album sis? #R9,” the singer joked at the time.
