Scarlett Johansson has VERY BIG role in Age of Ultron

In recent interviews Kevin Feige has hinted at the development of a Black Widow solo film.

We find out a bit more about her spy background in Captain America: The Winter Soldier however certain aspects of her background are being kept for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. We have no doubt that in the sequel to possibly the best superhero film ever created, both Black Widow’s and Hawkeye’s back stories will be looked at in greater detail. Feige stated in Total Film magazine:

“We start filming the next Avengers film at the end of March. [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.”

He also went on to talk about her role in the Winter Soldier:

“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 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.”

Everyone loves Black Widow, I love Black Widow but I’m still unsure about her having a solo film. Could I sit through a couple of hours with Natasha Romanoff as the lead character? Maybe it’s just because I’m so used to her as a great side character that I don’t know how I would handle it if she was anything more. The Black Widow comics are brilliant so why shouldn’t a Black Widow film be? Maybe I’m just not that into Scarlett Johansson. Maybe if Black Widow was played by someone like Jennifer Lawrence I’d feel a little better about it. I’ll mull it over for a while, chew the cud as it were. I could really warm to the idea after seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
