There has been a lot of talk about the possibility of getting to see Scarlett Johansson starring in her very own Black Widow movie for quite some time now, with fans around the world eager to see Marvel making the movie happen. While the Marvel bosses have suggested that a Black Widow film could happen in the future, the project has yet to be officially given the green light.
However, it now seems that we could well get to see Scarlett Johansson getting that Black Widow solo movie after all, thanks to Avengers director Joss Whedon. During a recent interview, Joss admitted that he would love the chance to direct a Black Widow movie, giving his ideas for the film, while also praising Scarlett.
Whedon explained, "I think that character really is very interesting and very earthbound, so it’s the kind of action that I got to do less of with somebody like Thor or The Vision. When you get into your ‘Superman’ territory it’s harder to maintain the gritty action that the Russo brothers do so brilliantly and she’s got that kind of thing."
He added, "[you can] really do a spy thriller. Like really do a good, paranoid, ‘John le Carré on crack’ sort of thing. That would be really fun. Scarlett Johansson is just delightful. She works really hard but she just spends most of her time cracking me up, so it would be a fun shoot."
This will certainly give comic book movie fans hope that a Black Widow film can finally happen, although the Marvel slate is pretty full at the moment, so we could still have to wait for quite some time before we do finally see it.
