MOVIES: Scarlett Johansson Discusses Interest in ‘Black Widow’ Film

Posted on May 7, 2012

Every member of The Avengers team has had their own standalone film, all except Black Widow and Hawkeye (and I guess Nick Fury too, if you count him). Well, Scarlett Johansson, who played the team's only female hero, is hoping to star in a self titled movie.

If you've been watching any of Scarlett's Avengers interviews, she's been very verbal about having her own film has the deadly Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanoff). And according to CBM, she's also spoken to Marvel about entertaining the idea of having a Black Widow spin-off.

I love her origin story. I think it’s just such a riveting one... it’s just steeped in history and the richness to shoot in Russia, perhaps. I hope that the fans’ voice is loud enough and they want to see a Widow origin story, I know Marvel would be happy to entertain that. We’ve spoken a lot about it.

She continues talking about how the character of Black Widow has grown since Iron Man 2...

[In Avengers] you see a little bit about how Natasha joined and it’s not that she’s fighting for the greater good of humanity. She was almost salvaged by S.H.I.E.L.D. and so she’s loyal to that group, to that agency, but only as sort of paid debt.

Agreed. The Black Widow character has grown some depth since her on-screen debut on Iron Man 2, and that backstory could definitely be made into a movie. Scarlett has impressed me in the Avengers, as she had one of the more prominent roles in the film. Personally, I'd like to see this happen. How about you guys? Would you guys want to see Marvel expand her story with a movie?

  1. This would be awesome. She’s a talented actress and brought a lot to this role in the avengers and I’d personally like to see an origin movie for as well as Renner’s hawkeye. Those could even be concievably combined.
