Joss Whedon would love a shot at Black Widow film and teases his next movie

Joss Whedon has said he would consider returning to the Marvel fold for a solo Black Widow film.

Speaking to IGN, the Avengers director was asked if he’d be willing to stage a Marvel comeback for the fan-favourite character, starring Scarlett Johansson.

“Well, if somebody pointed at me and said, ‘Do you want to make a Black Widow movie,’ the answer would be ‘duh’ for two reasons,” he said.

“Black Widow is very interesting and very earthbound, so it’s the kind of action that I got to do less of. Somebody like Thor [and] The Vision, when you get into your ‘Superman’ territory, it’s harder to maintain that sort of gritty action.”

In related news, the director, speaking at SDCC at the weekend, said he’s headed back to the horror canvass for his next outing: “The film I’m working on right now, I could credit 100 different things for how it’s evolving,” Whedon said.

“I’ll say this much about it: it’s historical fiction, it’s different than anything I’ve done before and for the first time I’m writing without a studio, a rating, a budget, or anything in mind. I’m writing purely on a level that I never have. When I finish the script, which should be a couple months, I believe all the studios will get together for a bidding-war/intervention because it is not – it’s very disturbing. It’s been a very exciting experience.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
