Kevin Feige Says Marvel Is Committed To Doing A Black Widow Movie
Over on Deadline they have an extensive Q&A with Marvel Studios top man, Kevin Feige. One of the questions that came up was about which supporting character from Falcon, War Machine, Black Widow and Hawkeye might move up to their own solo film soon.
FEIGE: We've announced the next nine movies, 10 counting Civil War, through the end of 2019. Where we go beyond that are ongoing discussions that we'll focus on in the next few years because we have a lot to do before then. Of the characters that you've just mentioned I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow.
As to why:
FEIGE: We think she's an amazing character. We think Scarlett Johansson's portrayal of her is amazing. She's a lead Avenger and has amazing stories in her own right to tell that we think would be fun to turn into a stand-alone franchise.
