Widow Gets Her Due?

Hot on the heels of her co-starring role in Captain America: Civil War, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has announced that the studio is “firmly committed” to doing a Black Widow movie with Scarlett Johansson. The tentative plan – nothing has been set yet and no filming or release dates have been announced – is to release a standalone film featuring the crimson-headed Avenger after the second part of Avengers: Infinity War, which would most likely be no earlier than 2020.

Marvel does have three films slated to be filmed and/or released within one to two years after Infinity War 2, but they haven’t been named. Could Black Widow – and the long-suffering and incredibly patient Ms. Johansson – finally be getting her due?

Time will tell. In the meantime, whether this happens or not, we still will get two films featuring incredibly strong female characters in the next few years: Wonder Woman next year, and Captain Marvel in 2019 (and personally, I’m REALLY hoping that they cast Katee Sackhoff in that role). Throwing a spy-movie take of the adventures of Natasha Romanova into the mix of the MCU would be icing on the cake for the franchise.

Plus, they should really consider hiring this guy to do the title sequence…

One Thought to “Widow Gets Her Due?”

  1. As successful as her team ups with Winter Soldier have been, I hope they avoid that trap. I don’t want to see her get overshadowed in her own film. I’d rather watch something akin to what was going on just prior to the Secret Wars. Nathan Edmondson had a great understanding for the character. Especially in the flashback storylines.
