Good News! Stan Lee teases a solo Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow movie

Since the time Scarlett Johansson made her much loved debut in Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man 2, fans have been intrigued by Black Widow and are raring to see that solo film featuring their favourite spy superhero. While it’s been 7 years since her debut and Black Widow has made several other appearances in Avengers and Captain America films with her last being an uncredited cameo appearance in Thor: Ragnarok. But one thing that was amiss was her solo movie until now. It so happened that folks at got in touch with the creator of several MCU superheroes including Black Widow and asked him if phase four of Marvel Cinematic Universe is planning for a solo Black Widow movie, and if he would like to see the same, the legend replied in affirmative. He said,

One day there will be a Black Widow movie.

So far Scarlett Johansson has appeared as Black Widow in Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. It’ll be interesting to see her headlining her own film. Who wouldn’t want to know those intriguing stories she’s been teasing us with Hawkeye in various MCU films.

Apart from Stan Lee, Thor: Ragnarok director, Taika Waititi too shared similar feelings when he was asked about a Black Widow film. He told io9,

[I’d like to see] Black Widow as something crazy and a bit funnier than we expect it to be. Because we know her story and it’s very sullen and very dark and her history is very dark. But! What’s the funny version of that? What’s the more entertaining version of that?

Black Widow will next be seen in Avengers: Infinity War. Directed by the Ruso brothers, the third film in Avengers franchise is slated for a May 2018 release.

Scarlett Johansson in Talks to Star in Focus Drama ‘Reflective Light’

Scarlett Johansson Reflective Light

Scarlett Johansson is in early talks to star in the Focus Features drama “Reflective Light,” sources tell Variety.

Art photographer Gregory Crewdson is making his directing debut with Marc Platt producing along with Platt Productions’ Jared LeBoff. The film is an adaptation of the 2014 Carla Buckley novel “The Deepest Secret,” which Crewdson and partner Juliane Hiam have adapted.

The pic follows a teenage boy who suffers from a malady that makes him gravely allergic to sunlight. If Johansson’s deal goes through, she would play his mother, so devoted to her son’s care that she has alienated the rest of their family, creating an oddly sustainable nocturnal lifestyle for him at the expense of her own well-being. When a neighborhood girl goes missing, the balance that kept them afloat begins to unravel.

Focus acquired the rights to the movie right before this year’s Cannes Film Festival and hopes to start production next year.

The film would mark a change of pace for Johansson, who has been busy in action and comedy movies including this year’s “Ghost in the Shell” and the Sony comedy “Rough Night.” She can be seen next in “Avengers: Infinity War” and is also lending her voice to Wes Anderson’s animated “Isle of Dogs.”

She is repped by CAA and LBI Entertainment.

Scarlett Johansson Casts Her Avengers Friends in Our Town

We should have seen this coming. After nearly 10 years together, running away from a thousand explosions and earning billions of dollars, there was only one place the cast of Marvel’s Avengers movies could possibly go. Really, it’s the only thing that makes sense. They are, at long last, doing Our Town together. And it’s for a good cause!

It was announced on Friday that Scarlett Johansson will lead Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo—with more actors to be announced—in a staged reading of Thornton Wilder’s classic 1938 play. They’re all down in Atlanta filming whatever the next Avengers movie is, Avengers: Chipwrecked I think, and have decided to band together, like only the Avengers can, to do a one-night-only reading to benefit hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. Johansson got her New York theater pal Kenny Leon to come down and direct, and a lucky few will get to see the fruits of their labor on November 6.

Wouldn’t that be a dream to see? I assume Johansson will be playing Emily, who doesn’t realize how sweet and precious our short lives on this Earth are until she loses her own. I also assume that Downey Jr., as the paterfamilias of the Avengers clan, will be playing the Stage Manager, the sort of spiritual guide through the play who gets some killer lines about, well, the fleeting nature of existence. Chris Evans will, I’m guessing, be Emily’s beau, George, and Mark Ruffalo will be . . . I dunno, one of the dads? There are plenty more roles to be doled out, so I’m sure Johansson can corral some of her other Avengers pals to join her. Don Cheadle as sad Simon Stimson? Gwyneth Paltrow as gossipy Mrs. Soames? The possibilities are endless.

Hopefully there will be some recording of this event. There’s something awfully quaint and endearing about it, isn’t there? That after all this boom and rattle and global domination, this troupe of actors is doing nothing fancier or bigger than a little reading of Our Town, one of the most winsomely, wistfully American plays in existence. The Avengers cast is doing what so many high-school students have done before them, giving voice to Thornton’s melancholy poetry about small towns and vast mysteries. I’m sure they’ll do those words proud.

And they’re raising money for Puerto Rico, which is very important. The president of the United States maybe says there’s only so much we can do about American citizens living without electricity or clean water for potentially months on end, but the cast of the Avengers knows that’s not entirely true. So they’re doing what they can do, what they were always destined to do. They’re putting on their best turn-of-the-century New Hampshire accents and are puttin’ on a play. We salute them. And we beg them for a house seat.

DAREDEVIL Actor Charlie Cox Wants Scarlett Johansson’s BLACK WIDOW To Appear On The Marvel Netflix Shows

Charlie Cox cites the comic book history between Daredevil and Black Widow as the reason he’d like to see Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff cameo in Netflix’s street-level corner of the MCU.

While out promoting The Defenders in Mexico, Charlie Cox and Finn Jones were asked which of the MCU characters they’d like to see cameo in their particular corner of the MCU. Jones named the Hulk while Cox stated that he’d like to see Scarlett Johansson appear as the Black Widow due to their characters’ history in the comics.

Looking at Finn’s face while Cox makes this statement probably means Charlie has some ulterior motives as well.
