Scarlett Johansson Expresses What She Wants From The BLACK WIDOW Movie

For years, fans have been clamoring for a Black Widow film. It looks like it’s finally going to happen, but what will it be about? Will it be an origin film? Will it be a new adventure after Infinity War? Some people are speculating that the film will feature Natasha Romanova putting together an all-female Avengers team. Scarlett Johansson recently talked about what she wants from the film with ET:

“I think that there is a...(laughs) it’s such a loaded question. Yes, I would want to in the right context and for the film to fit where I’m at, where I am in my life. I mean I’ve played this character for a long time. It’s been probably like 8 years or more, and so much has happened in my life, my life as a performer and happened in my life personally.

I love playing this character, and I think there is definitely an opportunity to explore the Widow as a woman who has kind of come into her own and is making independent and active choices for herself probably for once in her life,” she added in regards to what she’d like the movie to deliver. “You know she hasn’t always had that possibility so if it fit that criteria then yes I would want to do it.

It sounds like Johansson wants it to be a true solo film for Black Widow and I don’t blame her. I’d love to see Black Widow on her own with maybe another character like Hawkeye making a brief appearance. She has always been a secondary character in these films, she deserves the spotlight and some alone time I think. While I’d love to see Johansson continue the role, I’m not sure where the story could go after Infinity War, so maybe they’ll have to do more of a prequel or origin story for Black Widow that would require a different actor. What story do you want from a Black Widow movie?
