Kevin Feige Hints at Potential BLACK WIDOW Standalone Film

Many jokes have been made from fanboys and critics alike, how female superheroes rarely get their own films. As pointed out, we are getting a walking and talking raccoon and tree on the big-screen before we get a Wonder Woman film? But with the success of female-leading action franchises like "The Hunger Games" and the upcoming hopeful with "Divergent", could the game be changing?

Scarlett Johansson has played the super sultry spy Black Widow for Marvel and has been seen in several films now within their cinematic universe. She will grace us on the big-screen again soon opposite Chris Evans as Captain America in "Captain America: The Winter Solider". But perhaps her interesting backstory is worth exploring more?

Marvel President Kevin Feige certainly thinks so, as he elaborated in a recent interview. Feige stated, "We start filming the next Avengers film at the end of March. [Black] Widow's part in that is very big. We learn more about her past and learn more about where she came from and how she became in that film. The notion of exploring that even further in her own film would be great, and we have some development work with that."

Some complain that Johansson isn't athletic enough to have her own standalone film as the character. Others don't seem to care because the actress is incredibly gorgeous and they wouldn't complain seeing her in her leather outfit for 2 hours. Regardless of your stance on the character personally, given the success of the MCU, I think it's about damn time they give a solo female superhero their own movie.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
