Avengers: Age Of Ultron is coming to theaters faster than Quicksilver can run, but fans are already looking toward the future.
During press day, Scarlett Johansson had a few interesting details to share about a possible standalone movie for her Black Widow character!
ScarJo recounted some conversations she’s had with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about a solo Black Widow movie, revealing:
“I’ve spoken to Kevin about it. I mean, of course, of course we’ve had that conversation before, and I think Kevin would also like to see a standalone film. I think I can speak for him and say that. That’s all, really. Right now I think this character is used well in this part of the universe, but I think that Kevin├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥I mean, we’ve talked about it and we both share similar vision for what could be a standalone series.”
A whole series? YASSS!
And the VERY interesting tidbit that ScarJo shared involved the changing of her contract!! She said:
“My contract has changed. Marvel and myself didn’t really know how the fans were gonna react to Black Widow the first time and how she was gonna be├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥they couldn’t anticipate how they would want to use her or if they would want to use her. I mean we invested in that character, but the audience had a great reaction to the character, which has been so awesome. For instance, I wasn’t contracted into doing Cap movies, but that storyline worked out so well I kind of branched off and I found myself in that standalone movie. My contract is kind of mutating, I guess [laughs] or morphed to fit the demand of the character…It’s been a very good relationship back and forth and I think Marvel├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥the one thing about working with them is they don’t want anybody to work on the movie that doesn’t want to be there, obviously. So whatever you’re contracted to should not feel like golden handcuffs, and they don’t want that either├óΓé¼┬ª I will certainly be around and that’s because it’s been such a great response. I mean, I’m always happy to put the cat suit back on, for sure.”
Why was it so hard to foresee that a badass female character with a cool backstory played by an international movie star is going to be a fan favorite?
We would obvi LOVE to see a standalone movie featuring ScarJo kicking butt.
Maybe her contract being so flexible means a solo movie just takes hearing from fans enough! It worked with Black Panther and Captain Marvel!
