Scarlett Johansson says she’s had talks about a Black Widow standalone movie series…

April 16th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Of all the Marvel characters on the big screen, and off, Black Widow is one that everyone really wants to see on a solo outing. She has been in three movies so far, four when Age of Ultron arrives and has been conformed for Civil War.

But that’s not enough for the fans… they still want to see her on her own. And it looks like it may well happen. Eventually.

The actress has been talking about the chances and seems confident that it will happen: “I think that there’s room for a standalone movie. The character has a really rich origin story and I’ve been really fortunate to kind of place all these layers on top of one another and kind of build up this character to this point where I think I can now start to peel them away and reveal different sides of her and really focus on – I think I’ve been able to grow with the character, the character’s been able to grow with me.”

“I’ve spoken to Kevin [Feige,  Marvel chief] about it, I mean, of course, of course we’ve had that conversation before, and I think Kevin would also like to see a standalone film. I think I can speak for him and say that. That’s all, really. Right now I think this character is used well in this part of the universe, but I think that Kevin – I mean, we’ve talked about it and we both share similar vision for what could be a standalone series.”

While we would like to see her in a standalone movie, we are happy to have her as one of the main recurring characters in the other movies… what about you all?

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….
