I've never heard of this site before, so I can't vouch for how legit this is, but I don't think they'd make it up.

After producer Kevin Feige confirmed that a standalone film for Black Widow has already been prepared post-"The Avengers", lead actress Scarlett Johansson revealed some tidbits about the plot of the spin-off movie. The 27-year-old actress hinted that the film will be more of a prequel that focuses on the gun-wielding hero's origin.

"I love her origin story. I think it's just such a riveting one...," she said during a recent interview to promote "Avengers". She added, "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 also dished on what the difference is between playing Natasha Romanoff in "Iron Man 2" and "Avengers". She explained, "[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."

Feige previously confirmed a Black Widow film to Movieline, "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."

I would watch Scarlett walk around on set in spandex all day long.

I can't imagine a complete stand alone movie, but a Hawkeye and Widow movie might make sense. It would awesome if her movie could cross paths with Winter Soilder as well.

yea, but Black Widow and Hawkeye have an entire story line of their own.


It could work but it's probably not going to be a typical blockbuster Hero type movie.

Should be better than Catwoman and that Jennifer Garner one.

Because that's tough.

Hawkeye was the least interesting character in the film.. . . which is why he would benefit from having their own movie.

It would be a different kind of film, more like a spy/espionage thriller, I would think, probably with a romance between them (which actually fits with their comic origins). Neither of them have super-powers, so it would be less flashy, and it would be the only one of all of these movies that would be a flashback, so they'd have those hurdles to overcome. This is the only place I've seen it mentioned, though, so Feige may have just been talking hypothetically.

This is a spoiler if you haven't seen The Avengers yet.

I think they mentioned her origins of being a very bad person, and even killing innocent people. I could see it being very cool how she was pursued by S.H.I.E.L.D. Hopefully they show all the bad shit she did, and what it was that turned her good.

There were plans for an Ant Man movie but they moved ahead the Avengers schedule and never did it. Still on IMDB but I doubt that one ever sees the light of day.

One of my favorite parts of the movie. Very comic book like the way they did it. If I hadn't seen the movie, I'd be mad that you posted this though.

Yeah, me too. It's a little early to be posting spoiler GIFs.

As for Ant-Man, I think it's still on the table. I can't imagine that it would be a big budget summer epic; probably more like a smaller niche film like Daredevil or Ghost Rider were. I wouldn't be surprised if it came out the same year as Avengers 2 and they had a tie-in.

I think a movie would only fly if it had both her and Renner in it. The studio would need that for the star power. Plus, both of their origin stories can probably be wrapped into one film; after all, they're just human. It could be a very well-done espionage/spy/action film, and it would be interesting because it would attract that crows (the Bourne/MI types) and it would also pull some comic-book people. Especially because, once they started seriously thinking about it, I'm sure they could find some way to work a few extraneous superheroes into the backstory.
