Kevin Feige Continues To Support The Idea Of A Black Window Movie Starring Scarlett Johansson

When it comes to the possibility of a Black Widow movie, Kevin Feige clearly supports the idea. “We start filming the next ‘Avengers’ film at the end of March,” Feige said in the latest issue of Total Film. “[Black] Widow’s part in that is very big. We learn more about her past and learn more about where she came from and how she became in that film. The notion of exploring that even further in her own film would be great, and we have some development work with that.”

Marvel chief Kevin Feige said in 2010: “We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett [Johansson] about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts, but ‘The Avengers’ comes first.” 

He then later added in 2011: “There’s no definitive plans, but we have started talking and talking with Scarlett Johansson about what a Widow movie could be.” However, there have been many rumors about the film, but all that Feige said was that they have gained some momentum in bringing up the talks.

“Black Widow’s whole arc [in ‘The Winter Soldier’] is coming to terms with her history—that she’s been a spy, and spies aren’t necessarily trustworthy,” Chris Evans told Total Film about her role in the ‘Captain America’ sequel.”

“We wanted to change the dynamic of the cinematic universe with this film. We wanted Cap and really the entire cinematic universe to be very different at the end of ‘Winter Solider’ than it is at the beginning. Therefore when we meet the Avengers at the top of ‘Age of Ultron,’ it’s a very different landscape than we left them at the end of the film. Partially that’s because we love the rhythm that the comic books have developed – each of the characters appear in their runs, occasionally they get together for a big event or crossover series, they part again, and then they come back together again.” Feige stated.

Meanwhile, with all these happenings, Marvel’s official site spelled the claim’s of the phase 3 plan which includes “Ant-Man,” “Captain America 3,” “Thor 3,” “The Avengers 3” and “Dr. Strange.” None of the above mentioned films have given a hint on what is happening as all of them are on their initial stages of development. Edgar Wright’s “Ant-Man” arrives summer 2015, but confirmation of the in-development “Dr. Strange” is something fans are eager to see. It might be interesting to consider “The Avenger 3” if only for contracts. Many of the regular “Avengers” actors contracts will be up by then; most certainly Robert Downey Jr.’s will be. And statements and rumors suggest that many of the actors would move on. And of-course, RDJ will be moving on, he’s has been too expensive for Marvel’s taste and nearing 50 years old, the actor thinks he would rather go back to some regular acting.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is set to screen on April 4th, while “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015.
