Kevin Feige says Marvel developing a Black Widow solo movie, talks Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier

By May 2015, Scarlett Johansson will have made her fourth appearance as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with upcoming roles in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Avengers: Age of Ultron adding to her appearances in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers, and according to Kevin Feige, we might get to see the S.H.I.E.L.D. spy headlining her very own movie.

“We start filming the next Avengers film at the end of March,” Feige tells Total Film (via CBM). “[Black] Widow’s part in that 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.”

Meanwhile, Feige also touched upon the implications of the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Joss Whedon’s Avengers sequel: “We wanted to change the dynamic of the cinematic universe with this film. We wanted Cap and really the entire cinematic universe to be very different at the end of Winter Solider than it is at the beginning. Therefore when we meet the Avengers at the top of Age of Ultron, it’s a very different landscape than we left them at the end of the film film. Partially that’s because we love the rhythm that the comic books have developed – each of the characters appear in their runs, occasionally they get together for a big event or crossover series, they part again, and then they come back together again.”

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set for release on March 26th in the UK and April 4th in North America, while The Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring the curtain down on Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on May 1st 2015.

    That’d be hard to sell.

      After these next few movies? Ad under the marvel banner? Plus they could explore her bad past and joining up with hawkeye and shield. I see lots of possibility and fandom. Sure ima huge nerd, but people know marvel

      • wat

        It’d cater to the geeks for sure but I don’t think she’s popular enough in the movies to garner interest from the broad spectrum of viewers.

        • The Walking Cuban

          She’s not that popular YET. Cap 2 and A2 would change tgat some. The big question is, would she make 500 to 700 mill? Probly closer to 5

          • wat

            Idk, I just don’t see the interest being built even with her role in Cap 2 and A2 being bigger than previous films lol. Of course we’ll have to wait and see.

    Hawkeye is a huge part of Black Widow but yet they seem to be phasing him out for some strange reason

  • UN

    i dont think character is important or strong enough to carry an whole film on her own shoulders….

  • acidintimacy

    I have been wanting this since she showed up in Iron Man 2.

    Yes. Marvel, make it so!

    • HolyFranchiseBatman!

      I’d like to see it, but I think the best she could hope for is a Hawkeye or SHIELD team-up.
