Scarlett Johansson Talks Potential Black Widow Movie
Will we ever get a Black Widow movie?
Let's hope so.
"I would like for it to happen under the right circumstances," Johannson said. "I think there’s a lot of opportunity to mine that story line. She’s got a really rich origins story. There’s a lot of places you can go — you can bring it back to Russia. You could explore the Widow program. There’s all kinds of stuff that you could do with it. You could really uncover the identity of who this person is, where she comes from and where she’s part of."
It's suggested the Black Widow movie could be a prequel, with Scarlett Johansson agreeing, but also offering other possibilities.
"It’s a possibility. There’s plenty of back story," she said. "Or not. It could be something else. Where do the Avengers go? They are underground. What happens then? What happens after it all falls apart? There are so many ways you can go. I think it would just have to be very much like its own specific thing. It would have to have its own specific vibe. It would have been totally different than any of the other standalone films. I think if the fans wanted it enough, then it would probably become a reality."
Scarlett Johansson reveals there is still talks with Marvel about the Black Widow movie.
"Yeah, of course. I talked to them about it often. It would have to fit in the idea of where they want to go. I’m invested in that character. Marvel is greatly invested in that character. If I did it, I’d have to do it while. I still actually wanted to wear a skin-tight catsuit. I don’t know how much longer that’s going to be."
Whether or not a Black Widow movie will be made remains to be seen, but there is no denying the box office draw of Scarlett Johansson. Her 2014 Lucy movie out grossed both Thor and Captain America -- and didn't even have the Marvel brand attached.
