Marvel reveals there are no plans for a Black Widow or Hulk stand-alone films

Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige has said that there are presently no plans to give either Black Widow, the character played by Scarlett Johansson, or Hulk, currently played by Mark Ruffalo, a film based solely around them.

Speaking yesterday (October 28th), when asked about a follow-up to 2008's The Incredible Hulk, Feige explained: "We'll see. For now, he'll be appearing with his friends in the other films."

He added that Black Widow would continue to appear in the Avengers movies and will have a key role going forward, but would not be getting her own movie in the short term.


Marvel revealed that a big-screen adaptation of Black Panther will be released in 2017 and a new adaptation of Captain Marvel will come out in 2018.

The news was confirmed this afternoon by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at a special event in California. 

Black Panther will be played by 42 and Get On Up star Chadwick Bosemen, who said of taking the role: "I'm blessed to be apart of this Marvel Universe, to work with you both, and to make magic together", while Captain Marvel has been confirmed to be Marvel's first female superhero in a lead role in a movie.  

As well as this, Feige also confirmed that the third Thor movie will be titled Thor: Ragnarok, which is due to hit cinemas in July 2017. 

Doctor Strange will be released into cinemas on November 4th 2016, which is six months later than originally planned. Benedict Cumberbatch is strongly rumoured to be taking the title role, but no casting was confirmed today. 

Feige also confirmed that the the sequel to the hugely Guardians Of The Galaxy will be released in May 2017 as well as the release of a new adaptation of comic Inhumans, which is due for release in November 2018. 

Finally, it was announced that the third Captain America film will be titled Captain America: Civil War, which will be released on May 6th 2016.
