Kevin Feige confirms Marvel/Disney is ‘committing’ to a Black Widow movie…

May 6th, 2016 by Marc Comments


So we only just reported that Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthoy Russo reckoned a Black Widow movie is a “no brainer” and will probably happen soon (here).

Well, now Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has gone one step further and pretty much said a Black Widow movie WILL happen.

On a Q&A Session with Deadline, Feige was asked out of The Falcon, War Machine, Black Widow and Hawkeye, which Avenger is most likely to get the solo movie treatment?

Feige explained: “We’ve announced the next nine movies, ten counting ‘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.

“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 standalone franchise.”

Scarlett Johansson has now played the character five times in supporting roles and continues to be the Avenger people most want to see in a solo adventure… and it looks like it’s going to happen.

We’re looking forward to it… and wonder if it’ll be a superhero outing or more of a spy drama, or perhaps… well, the possibilities are endless, really.

Committed or not, it looks like it’ll be a while before we see it but good things are worth the wait, right?

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
