Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow has yet to get her own movie and probably never will, but by this point we’ve picked up enough bits and pieces about her past to know it was a dark one. Avengers: Age of Ultron gave us our best look yet at the Red Room that shaped her, while the Black Widow storyline in Agent Carter offered further insight into the program.
And it looks like we almost got even more of the Black Widow backstory in Captain America: Civil War. A scene from the film’s junior novelization reveals an especially harrowing incident in Natasha’s past. Basically, however depressing and terrible you thought her early years were, her actual childhood was so much worse. Read More »

Go back and read the interviews with director Joss Whedon in the weeks leading up to the release of 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and witness a man who was very happy to be getting out of the superhero movie game. Go back a little further and read the various set visit reports and witness a man who was exhausted and beat to hell by the process of making a $200 million spectacle. With those images fresh in your brain, it’s easy to imagine why Whedon says he’ll never direct a superhero movie again, especially since he can make perfectly entertaining low-budget Shakespeare adaptations in his backyard.
Still, there is one character who Whedon says could possibly pull him back into the Marvel fold: Black Widow. He may be done with Avengers movies, but Scarlet Johansson‘s Natasha Romanoff could be the thing that drags him back into the comic book movie business. Theoretically. Because there are currently no plans to make this movie.

With Captain America: Civil War in theaters this weekend, Marvel is deep in the middle of another press tour — which means it’s time for more questions about that Black Widow movie they keep not making, which means it’s time for more hopefully somedays and that would be greats and we would love tos. But this time around, Kevin Feige‘s answers sound just a little bit more promising.
The Marvel Studios president has said Marvel is “committing” to a Black Widow solo movie, and that he thinks it’d be “fun” to launch a standalone franchise built around the super-spy Avenger. Which, before you get too excited, is nowhere close to an official announcement. But it might be a small step in the right direction. Read More »
