Marvel Developing “Black Widow” Film with Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"As DC/Warner Bros. continues to knock it out of the park with its casting choices, it’s worth taking a moment to mention that Scarlett Johansson may soon be starring in a solo Black Widow film after reprising the character in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Solider. 

Standalone Black Widow Film?

Marvel Studios is developing a film that would revolve around Black Widow, the character played by Scarlett Johansson in the “Iron Man” and “The Avengers” franchises.

Studio president Kevin Feige has long been high on the character even before her role was expanded for April’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” When promoting the home video release for “Iron Man 2,” in 2010, he said, “We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett (Johansson) about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts, but ‘The Avengers’ comes first.”

    I personally prefer Kat Dennings or someone like that.

    But I do agree with Steve on everything else.

    I should mention, that they already did the movie Punisher 1 & 2.

    I can see Elektra 2 being uncancel, thanks to 3D, which brings us Jurassic Park 4 (Jurassic World) & DareDevil 2 & Fantastic Four reboot & who knows what else.

    Maybe Megan Fox should start playing Elektra, at least in the non-DareDevil movies.

    Scarlet is not right for the role in my view, she doesnt even make the effort to do a slight Russian accent. Milla Jovovich would have been my choice and she does fight choreography better. I think Black Widow can have 3 films but they will have to be like the Black Widow comics, especially the recent series. They take the character away from aliens and super villains and put her in a more realistic violent world of spies and assasins. That would work, but the film will have to be more violent. I think Marvel could create a separate studio focusing on the darker characters such as Punisher, Elektra, the Thunderbolts etc

    I would rather have Kat Dennings, since she looks much more the part, and as a bonus she is middle-eastern, even though she’s not the same exact middle-eastern race as the character..

    I think it’s over due that she get’s her own movie! I just hope it’s not gonna be a flop like Jennifer Gartner “Elektra “. Maybe they can throw in Hawkeye as supporting role??

    I know what you mean, Evangeline. I wouldn’t *mind* a trilogy of Black Widow flicks. But it will be far better to have one *really good* film than three that make you only go “meh…”

  6. In my humble opinion we can have ONE movie with her.
    I don’t mind minor characters having pone movie to help fill out the character. Thats fine. I don’t think its going to be a giant block buster, but thats ok. It doesn’t have to be.
    I just hope they don’t start cranking out the black widow machine and make 5 crappy pointless movies.
    We can easily take one movie done right to help fill out the character. it would be an entertaining prospect. I just don’t think we need a tomb raider/ salt/ bourne identity mashup

    Black Widow in small doses is fine. Not sure I’d want an entire movie about her. Same with Hawkeye. Just glad they finally gave her some Russian flavor in Avengers because, y’know, she’s Russian.

    Its about time. We had a movie about the other characters so why not Black Widow?

    Isn’t Marvel just rubbing it in DC’s face at this point?
