UPDATE: A BLACK WIDOW solo film may finally be moving forward as a writer has been hired! JAC SCHAEFFER (The Shower) will be penning the script with SCARLETT JOHANSSON’s input.

This does not mean a film has been officially green-lit, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.

Stay tuned!

Since making her debut as ‘Natasha Romanoff’ aka ‘Black Widow’ in 2010’s ‘Iron Man 2’, SCARLETT JOHANSSON have made quite an impression with fans as the badass female heroine.

Speaking to VARIETY Johansson talks about the possibility of the long overdue solo ‘Black Widow’ film:

“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.”

The film could be a prequel/origin story as she continues:

“I would like for [the movie] to happen under the right circumstances. 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.”

Or perhaps have it take place AFTER ‘Captain America: Civil War’:

“It’s a possibility. There’s plenty of back story. 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.”


There you have it. If you want a solo ‘Black Widow’ film, let your voice be heard!

Johansson will next be seen as the character in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ set to hit theaters in 2018.
