Scarlett Johansson Ready To Play Black Widow In Solo Movie

Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson weighs in on the possibility of playing the skilled Avengers operative in a future solo outing.

While fans have been clamoring for a Black Widow movie for years now, Johansson only spoke about the matter this week when she was asked about the matter during an interview with Variety. Saying that there was “a lot of opportunity” for exploration in such a project, the actress stated that she would welcome a solo film “under the right circumstances”:

“It’s a possibility,” Johansson stated of her movie being a prequel. “There’s plenty of back story. Or not. It could be something else. Where do the Avengers go? They are underground. What happens then? What happens after it all falls apart? There are so many ways you can go. I think it would just have to be very much like its own specific thing. It would have to have its own specific vibe. It would have been totally different than any of the other standalone films. I think if the fans wanted it enough, then it would probably become a reality. I talked to them [Marvel] about it often. It would have to fit in the idea of where they want to go. I’m invested in that character. Marvel is greatly invested in that character. If I did it, I’d have to do it while I still actually wanted to wear a skin-tight catsuit. I don’t know how much longer that’s going to be.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
