Scarlett Johansson Opens Up about the Possibility of a BLACK WIDOW Solo Film
There's been talk about doing a Black Widow solo film for years. Everyone involved with the franchise has weighed in on it over the years, and it's something that Marvel Studios has been considering. Nothing has officially been put into development, but one day it could happen.
In a recent interview with Variety, Scarlett Johansson opened up and talked about the possibility of a Black Widow solo movie, saying:
"I would like for it to happen under the right circumstances. I think there’s a lot of opportunity to mine that story line. She’s got a really rich origins story. There’s a lot of places you can go — you can bring it back to Russia. You could explore the Widow program. There’s all kinds of stuff that you could do with it. You could really uncover the identity of who this person is, where she comes from and where she’s part of."
The actress went on to talk about the direction of the story and if it could be a prequel:
"It’s a possibility. There’s plenty of back story. Or not. It could be something else. Where do the Avengers go? They are underground. What happens then? What happens after it all falls apart? There are so many ways you can go. I think it would just have to be very much like its own specific thing. It would have to have its own specific vibe. It would have been totally different than any of the other standalone films. I think if the fans wanted it enough, then it would probably become a reality."
I think the fans have proved that they want it enough. They are talking about it all the time, and a Black Widow movie continues to be a hot topic of discussion. The question here is, does Marvel Studios want it enough?! She revealed that she has been talking to them about it:
"Yeah, of course. I talk to them about it often. It would have to fit in the idea of where they want to go. I’m invested in that character. Marvel is greatly invested in that character. If I did it, I’d have to do it while I still actually wanted to wear a skin-tight catsuit. I don’t know how much longer that’s going to be."
At least they are all talking about it, which means all parties are interested. Hopefully, they are able to come together to make it happen sometime in the near future!
