After the successful release of cross-overs and superheroes-versus-superheroes films like “Captain America: Civil War” and “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the movie industry seems poised to release a solo “Black Widow” movie following fans’ clamor.
Amid this current demand, especially from those who have watched Scarlett Johansson unleash spy skills in the Chris Evans-starrer, famous American film and television directors Russo brothers shared their take in an interview with Collider.
The report noted that while there has been no direct confirmation yet that such project is in the offing, Anthony and Joseph V. Russo hinted that it is just “a matter of scheduling” for the “Black Widow” solo movie to finally hit the big screen.
“It’s a no-brainer, right?” Anthony Russo quipped, to which Joe Russo responded, “I don’t think [it’ll take] much.”
“I think it’s just a function of where on the slate it goes,” the latter added. “She’s a bad-ass.”
When asked on how the idea of crossover was born, Joe Russo dished that “As a comic book fan, you always think about any crossover.”
“As filmmakers, we love ambitious storytelling; it’s one of the reasons we pushed to do Civil War,” he continued to explain. “We want to be as ambitious in scope as we possibly can.”
He further pointed out that “Crossover events are some of the most special events in comic book storytelling, so any kind of ambitious event story would appeal to us.”
Does this mean that other Marvel superheroes, like Hulk, would be around to make the “Black Widow” solo movie more interesting?
In the meantime, fans appeared to be all agog to see the character, portrayed by Scarlett Johansson in “Captain America: Civil War,” taking the lead in her own film.
In the survey conducted by Fandango.com for USA Today, it was revealed that 48 percent of the 1,000 respondents, composed of moviegoers, want the secret agent star in a “Black Widow” solo movie.
