It’s a question Marvel fans have been asking for years: where the hell is the Black Widow solo movie? The no-nonsense heroine has emerged as one of the most popular Avengers, and Scarlett Johansson has proven more than capable of leading her own action movie. Filmmakers are practically lining up around the block to direct, and Kevin Feige himself has said he’d like to make a Black Widow movie. So what’s the holdup?
Well, according to Johansson, “it’s just a case of timing.” Which is a disappointing answer, for those who’d like to see the character step up from her supporting roles, but maybe kind of an understandable one. Read Johansson’s full quote after the jump. Read More »

We’re still in the early stages of Marvel’s Phase Three — next week’s Doctor Strange is just the second film out of ten — but since Marvel is famous for mapping out its plans well ahead of time, it’s impossible not to wonder what’s coming in Phase Four. So let’s give into that temptation, and spend a bit of time speculating.
Marvel already has three dates nailed down for 2020: May 1, July 10, and November 6. What remains unclear is which titles they’re for. Which films can we expect in 2020 and beyond from Marvel’s Phase Four? Read More »
Since Marvel Studios already has their roster set through 2019, we won’t be seeing a standalone Black Widow movie anytime soon. However, Kevin Feige did say after that line-up is finished, “I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow.” There’s no indication as to what kind of movie we’d get featuring Black Widow, but Scarlett Johansson sees endless possibilities.

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 »
