Scarlett Johansson Talks To Kevin Feige About A Black Widow Marvel Movie!
Quite a few of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood have stepped into the roles of some of sexiest female comic superheroes to hit the silver screen. Scarlett Johansson playing the Black Widow comic character in Iron Man 2 and the soon-to-be released Avengers movie is by far one of the sexiest.
Since it's been confirmed that the Black Widow comic character will not appear in next year's Iron Man 3, many fans are wondering, now more than ever, if there will be a Black Widow Marvel Movie in the works? This question has even been on the mind of Scarlett Johansson.
Apparently Scarlett has been behind closed doors with Marvel Studios, talking about the Black Widow character possibly branching out and starring in her own Black Widow Marvel movie!
Johansson sees the Black Widow spin-off film as a type of "Bourne" film, and the Black Widow comic character has "so much story to draw from" that an awesome block buster movie is a huge possibility. I have to admit that she does have a point.
I mean, who doesn't love the spy/thriller movie, right? Well, that's what the character of the Black Widow was in the comic - a super spy of sorts.
Yes, a Black Widow Marvel movie does have potential to be like a Jason Bourne flick, but I think Marvel Studios can, and should, spice it up so a Black Widow movie isn't just some knock off the Bourne trilogy. Besides, I didn't really care for those flicks.
Scarlett is right, however. There's a lot of story to draw from if were talking about the character, as well as the Marvel Universe here. The only concern is doing a big budget solo flick about the Black Widow that royally sucks.
To this date, no female comic character has been translated to the big screen correctly. We have Catwoman with Halle Berry and the horrible Elektra movie with Jennifer Gardner. Both movies were huge disappointments.
Nevertheless, Johannson has been talking to the President of Production at Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, about a possible Black Widow movie. It's safe to say that the possibility is being discussed. However, is there enough interest in the Black Widow Natalia Romanova character in the movies as well as the comic?
I mean, sure, the Black Widow was sexy and all in Iron Man 2, but her role was extremely small. I suppose we will really have to see what the Black Widow is like in the Avengers and if the movie really does build on the character more.
I agree with Johansson that a Black Widow movie could be awesome. A super spy, action-packed thriller could be really worth while if the movie had the right plot, right script, and right director at the helm. That type of film could have a very, original and innovative story.
Natalia Romanova does have an intriguing back story in the Marvel Comics, and is a pretty kick ass character in her own right. She also has a pretty wide following of fans. The truth is she's a great supporting character in an ensemble, but never strong enough to really hold her own regular titled comic book series for long.
Yes, a Black Widow movie could be a total dud as well. Judging how Hollywood has handled other female comic character in their own solo movies, it has a high chance of just plain sucking.
I suppose the real question is whether fans really want to see a Black Widow movie spin-off? Well, what do you think?
