The Russo brothers say a Black Widow movie is “a no brainer…”

May 6th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Ok, so the rumours of a standalone Black Widow movie at Marvel are back and this time they are from Joe and Anthony russo..

While Black Widow is a great character in the MCU, fans have been calling out for here own movie for quite some time and even Marvel’s Kevin Fiege has responded in the seemingly positive (here) but still no sign of it in the line-up of coming movies.

Now the Russos, the guys responsible forCaptain America: The winter Soldier and Civil War seem to be teasing that it’s only a matter of time.

The duo chatted to Collider and, talking about the possibility, Anthony said: “I think there are going to be some fun surprises in store over the next few years [at Marvel], so…”

So what? Well, he continues: “It’s a no-brainer, right?”

Right! Then Joe adds: “I don’t think [it’ll take] much. I think it’s just a function of where on the slate it goes. She’s a bad-ass.”

Scarlett Johansson herself has said there’s been talk of a Black Widow movie series (here) so we’re guessing it’s only a matter of time, indeed.

Would you like to see this happen?

Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. 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….
