Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has been playing the role of Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for many years now and, with the release of every Marvel movie she is involved in, talk always seems to turn to the possibility of a Black Widow standalone movie. Scarlett has made it perfectly clear in the past that she would love to star in a Black Widow movie and she has again voiced her desire to make it happen.
Johansson was chatting at the UK premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, when she explained, "A Black Widow movie would be cool. I’m always happy to put the catsuit back on and looking at myself in all those mirrors. What’s great about playing this character is she’s based in something deep and something I can hold onto. She’s grounded and is very real. She has experienced a lot of trauma and she’s never been able to make active choices for herself, and now she is ready for it.”
She added, "I think one of the qualities of the Black Widow that I really love and am interested in is that she is at a place where she is able to maybe do something for herself and maybe, even have a relationship and open up in that way. There is this kind of greater calling that is pulling her but she very selflessly shoots it back and it’s heroic… she is a slippery fish in her job but when you get Natasha, she’s kind of cool and can be her sexy self."
While we could well have a very long wait for a Black Widow movie, if it was to happen at all, we can see Scarlett Johansson back on the big screen as the Marvel character, in the new movie Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is set to open all over the world over the course of the next few days. We love seeing Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and would be all for a Black Widow solo movie.
Would you be happy to get a Black Widow movie?
