Kevin Feige, the producer of “The Avengers,” had recently confirmed that plans to make a separate movie on super heroine Black Widow have already been finalised.
“We have already planned her next appearance and where to take the character because we believe in it and we believe in her in a big, big way. When will there be a standalone? Both is what we’re heading toward,” he told Movieline.
And now Scarlett Johansson has come forward to divulge some more info about the spin-off project. In a recent promotional interview for “The Avengers,” ScarJo, who plays the role of Black Widow on this superhero series, revealed that the proposed film would be a prequel and it will focus on her character’s origin.
“I love her origin story. I think it’s just such a riveting one…It’s just steeped in history and the richness to shoot in Russia, perhaps… I hope that the fans’ voice is loud enough and they want to see a Widow origin story, I know Marvel would be happy to entertain that. We’ve spoken a lot about it,” Johansson said.
The 27-year-old actress had appeared as Natasha Romanoff in 2010′s “Iron Man 2″ too, and she then talked about how her character is different in “The Avengers.” “[In Avengers] you see a little bit about how Natasha joined and it’s not that she’s fighting for the greater good of humanity. She was almost salvaged by S.H.I.E.L.D. and so she’s loyal to that group, to that agency, but only as sort of paid debt,” she added.
