Titled Ghosted, it will see our Black Widow and Captain America engage in a romantic action-adventure. But, this is not the first film where Marvel stars have come together for a non-MCU venture. Let's discuss other notable projects of such a type of collaboration.
Detective brothers! Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo in 'Zodiac'
Before being MCU co-stars, Robert Downey Jr. aka Tony Stark, and Mark Ruffalo aka Hulk shared screen as detective brothers in Zodiac. The 2007 release was directed by David Fincher, and had Ruffalo as cop Dave Toschi, while Downey Jr. played crime journalist Paul Avery. Their real life friendship lit up the screen every single time they met up to solve the killer's identity.
