Scarlett Johansson Drops Updates on ‘Black Widow’ Movie

- Advertisement -

Ever since her debut in Iron Man 2 as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of Black Widow, fans have been clamoring for the red-headed super spy to ger her own film. According to ComicBook.com,  actor Scarlett Johansson (who has played Natasha Romanova/Black Widow in five films now) touched on the subject in a  Variety interview:

I would like for it to happen under the right circumstances. I think there’s a lot of opportunity to mine that story line. She’s got a really rich origins story. There’s a lot of places you can go — you can bring it back to Russia. You could explore the Widow program. There’s all kinds of stuff that you could do with it. You could really uncover the identity of who this person is, where she comes from and where she’s part of.

When asked abut the possible timeline of a solo movie, Johansson had this to say:

There’s plenty of back story. Or not. It could be something else. Where do the Avengers go? They are underground. What happens then? What happens after it all falls apart? There are so many ways you can go. I think it would just have to be very much like its own specific thing. It would have to have its own specific vibe. It would have been totally different than any of the other standalone films. I think if the fans wanted it enough, then it would probably become a reality. I talk to them about it often. It would have to fit in the idea of where they want to go. I’m invested in that character. Marvel is greatly invested in that character. If I did it, I’d have to do it while I still actually wanted to wear a skin-tight catsuit. I don’t know how much longer that’s going to be.

The upcoming scheduled movies for the MCU are: Doctor Strange on November 4, 2016, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5, 2017, Spider-Man: Homecomin on July 7, 2017, Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017, Black Panther on February 16, 2018, Avengers: Infinity War on May 4, 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6, 2018; Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019.
