Kevin Feige says Marvel is "creatively and emotionally" committed to making a Black Widow solo movie
Kevin Feige, head honcho of Marvel movies, has said that he "committed" to giving Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow her own movie.
The studio has announced all of its plans for the next three years, but in an interview with Deadline, Feige said that the company is already thinking ahead and wants to give Natasha Romanov, who has appeared in four Marvel movies so far, her own outing.
Asked about the studio's future plans for solo movies, he said: "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. I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow."
He continued: "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."
Johansson's Black Widow is one of the stars of Captain America: Civil War, which is in cinemas now and available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-Ray on the right-hand side of the page.
