Is it really happening?! Are all our wildest dreams coming true?! Is Black Widow ACTUALLY getting her own solo film???
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently had a Q&A with Deadline, and there was one answer that got us incredibly excited!
The 42-year-old seemed to say that a Scarlett Johansson-led Black Widow film might actually be on the docket!
When asked if characters like Falcon, War Machine, Black Widow, or Hawkeye would ever end up with their own action-packed flicks — rather than just guest starring in other superheroes’ movies — the exec explained:
“We’ve announced the next nine movies, 10 counting [Captain America:] Civil War, through the end of 2019. Where we go beyond that are ongoing discussions that we’ll focus on in the next few years because we have a lot to do before then. Of the characters that you’ve just mentioned I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow.”
While it doesn’t sound like it would be for quite a while, the Hollywood hotshot still gave a pretty encouraging answer! BW fans have already waited this long for her solo film, what’s a few more years, right?
“We think she’s an amazing character. We think Scarlett Johansson’s portrayal of her is amazing. She’s a lead Avenger and has amazing stories in her own right to tell that we think would be fun to turn into a stand-alone franchise.”
Hey, Kevin. You don’t have to pitch it so hard to us! We’re totally on board!! But we’re glad you see the same stellar star power in Black Widow’s kickass character that we do!
Hopeful he can get the studio to commit completely!
