It looks like Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow could be joining the ranks of Thor and Captain America, as the next solo star from The Avengers universe.
There is no solid confirmation regarding the movie, however Black Widow will apparently have a strong storyline in the forthcoming Captain America: Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron and this arc could be completed with a stand alone adventure. Whilst speaking to Variety Kevin Felge, who is President of Marvel Entertainment, said; “Widow’s part in [Age of Ultron] is very big. We learn more about her past and learn more about where she came from and how she became in that film. The notion of exploring that even further in her own film would be great, and we have some development work with that.”
There are no directors currently attached to the project, however, I have to say to see the awesome Black Widow get her own movie, and if the project goes ahead it would be the first time that a female Marvel hero would be the centre of the action. This can only be a good thing, and let’s hear it for the girls.
