First The Avengers, Then Probably a Black Widow Movie for Scarlett Johansson

Let’s face it, every warm-blooded male (who isn’t into other warm-blooded males, ahem) wants to see Scarlett Johansson slip that skin-tight black outfit back on for a “Black Widow” movie after she showed what kind of curves she could bring to the role in “Iron Man 2″. That’s just how we men roll. And it looks like we might get our chance, if what Marvel chief Kevin Feige said holds true.

Speaking at a roundtable presser to promote the upcoming “Iron Man 2″ DVD/Blu-ray release, Feige confirms that talks about a solo “Black Widow” movie starring Scarlett Johansson have already taken place with the actress.

We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts. ‘The Avengers’ comes first.

Obviously it’s all up to Johnasson if the film ever gets made, but since she already suited up for the role once, and will be doing it again for “The Avengers”, it seems unlikely she’d turn down a solo movie that will feature her character as the primary hero.

Then again, stranger things have happened with Marvel movies, so who knows.

Let’s faced it, most of us didn’t think she could pull the roll off when we first heard she had gotten the part. But she did. Oh my did she ever.

    Thanbk you for noting the Avengers comes first in the title! LOL. Everyone else is reporting it like they’re just gonna start that next.

    “Let’s faced it, most of us didn’t think she could pull the roll off when we first heard she had gotten the part. But she did. Oh my did she ever.” Yup I was thinking yeah she’s fine and definitely looks the part, but I dunno! Then I saw her, and then heard the accent, and then saw her fight. WOW!!! Yeah a Black Widow flick would actually be awesome with a cameo from Fury and Hawkeye, and some greta espionage and stuff. Also if they do a S.H.E.I.L.D. flick they need to have her cameo in that.

    A Black Widow movie sounds awsome! I enjoyed her role in IM2 and thought that she definately hit the nail on the head with both her look and delivery. I’d like to see some love triangle with Hawkeye, Ironman and Black Widow. Sadly, if things shape up the way IM2 was headed Tony Stark will end up with Pepper Potts and from what I heard about the Avengers film, Hawkeye will be Black Widow’s love interest. Either way I’ll be there!

      Agreed! And they could always throw in a possible love triangle with a new agent of S.H.E.I.L.D. in a 2nd Avengers flick codenamed Mockingbird ;-)

      • Juggernaut

        Mockingbird would kick ass! I seriously hope that they include some of my favorites in upcoming Avengers installments or solo films. I’d like to see Wonder Man and Ms. Marvel at some point. Maybe a role for Ares in the Thor sequel (which I’m certain will happen). Hoepefully either an Avengers film or even an X-Men film with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (although Fox will destroy their characters). Live action Avengers:Disassembled would be cool!

    I’d like to see her get a haircut and wear the gray “Black Widow” outfit with short hair,I always liked that image a little better. It’s more practical for fighting and won’t get in the way. As far as the fighting, the “grappling style” was ok but she’s needs to move more gracefully LIKE A BALLET DANCER. More of a badass graceful but highly dangerous and effective ballet Martial Arts style(She was a ballet dancer after all).

    • ULIK

      At some point SHE NEEDS TO BE SPEAKING RUSSIAN to her Russian colleagues or fellow spies and as a spy,she needs to portray her language and accent skills!!!! Marvel Studios needs to seriously consider the directors and screenwriters of the following movies for Black Widow: “Taken”,”The Bourne(trilogy)”,”Traitor”,”The Professional”,”La Femme Nikita”, and “The Long Kiss Goodnight”. BTW I’d love to see a fight between a live action version of “MockingBird” and Black Widow.

      • Juggernaut

        I agree. A Russian secret agent should speak Russian. In her own movie they should definately have her travel to a few different countries and speak fluently in those languages. It would add a believable quality to her role and a lot of depth. The fighting style in IM2 was cool! I hear where your coming from but ballet incorporated in battle would just come off as silly. The fighting style in IM2 was believable as something that a government agency would train. She needs to be able to take down men two and three times her size with similar training. If she comes in all gracefull it would be ridiculous. A grey costume would be cool too. If they had her in a situation where she was in disguise and had the short hair, and for whatever reason the script writers come up with she is wearing that outfit, that would be awsome! I’d also like to see the blonde rendering of her in the film. I know that in the comics the blonde Black Widow is a different person than Natasha Romanoff/natalia Romanova, but just a refference like her name being Yelena Belova would be cool.

        • ULIK

          I get what your saying, about the ballet style Martial Arts would be silly but its been done many times in classic Martial Arts movies and even some of it is used in “Crouching Tiger,Hidden Dragon”. I think she should incorporate DIFFERENT styles depending on the situation.

          • ULIK

            They should make Yelena Belova the blond Black Widow of the 40′s in WWII.

          • Juggernaut

            That would be cool! If another agent with the codename Black Widow popped up in the Captain America movie as a cameo that would be awsome! That’s what I like about the marvel movies. They leave eater eggs and make refferences that comic fans can catch and appreciate. Also, after thinking about it a little more you’re right. She is an international, double agent. She should be fluent in several different fighting styles. I’m getting really exited to see a Black Widow movie now.

            AGreed. I think that would be awesome. Hell they can set up the whole Widow spinoff on that premise alone. Have her take the same serum that Fury does to slow down her aging, but in secret. Let that be derived from the Super Soldier serum itself. Then have her fake her death to go into arms dealing and such. Let some clues be found by S.H.E.I.L.D. which leads Natasha on a mission to find out the truth. This would lead to a great Widow vs. Widow battle.
