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 comicbook.com 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.
