Marvel Studios FINALLY Considering Black Widow Solo Movie

3695055-7236217694-Aveng

After years of fans asking for and getting frustrated with the lack of, Marvel Studios and the cinematic universe are finally committing to a solo Black Widow film. FINALLY.

According to Kevin Feige, the studio is moving forward with a Natasha Romanoff film after the bulk of Phase 3 in the MCU is completed. Phase 3 began with this week’s release of Captain America: Civil War and will continue with Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther. Then afterward it seems like Black Widow will get her own slot.

“Where we go beyond that are ongoing discussions that we’ll focus on in the next few years because we have a lot to do before then,” Feige told Deadline.”I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow.”

While that is not a direct confirmation that her movie is for sure happening, this is the first time they have done any type of commitment towards the female hero’s own film. This is pretty huge for the hundreds of thousands of fans who have begged for a solo film (and merchandising for that matter) considering Black Widow is one of the main Avengers.

We so far have only had small glimpses into the past and person that was Natasha. In Avengers: Age of Ultron we learned that she grew up as a killer ballerina – a school who trains young girls in the arts of killing and skilled movements. She reveals that her her training ended with forced sterilization.

Scarlett Johansson hasn’t confirmed that she would sign on but last year she said,

“The character has a really rich origin story,” she told Collider. “In my mind, there’s room for plenty more Black Widow and certainly more—I think I could see her in a standalone film.”

More details will hopefully be released soon.

 

Avengers: Infinity War Will Feature 67 Marvel Characters

Infinity-Wars-04

According to the Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is about to expand even further in one quick burst.

According to the duo, the next Avengers film is going to see a staggering 67 Marvel characters appearing. How that is happening, is sort of unclear at the moment as the studio and directors are keeping relatively quiet. But they did speak out at the Wizard World New Orleans comic con hinting at a few details for the Infinity Wars story arc.

Turns out the character count reveal was actual a misstep. During their panel Joe dropped the bomb on fans, after his brother Anthony mistakenly referred to Peggy Carter — S.H.I.E.L.D.’s founder and Agent Carter’s central character — as Sharon Carter. Joe backtracked saying,

“We have so many characters we’re dealing with. We’re breaking ground on Avengers: Infinity War. We have a board with 67 characters on it. You have to forgive him.”

What is also interesting is WHO these characters could be. I mean you take away all the characters we already know between the movies, “Agents of Shield,” “Agent Carter,” and all the Netflix Marvel shows, and there is still a HUGE number of Marvel characters to account for.

But as many fans were quick to point out, the Russo brothers did not say specify that they were all superheroes or villians and we could merely be dealing with the general cast. Lets hope for the former.

Part one and two of Avengers: Infinity War are scheduled for release on May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019, respectively.

Elizabeth Olsen has officially confirmed with MTV that she is playing The Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Avengers sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The news was confirmed last month via Twitter by Samuel L. Jackson, but this is the first time Olsen has spoken about the role.

In her interview with MTV, she spoke to the site about acting alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson once again, whom she just completed Godzilla with a few months ago. Johnson is set to play her character’s brother, also known as Quicksilver.

“We get to play husband and wife, and we get to play twin brother and sister,” she said. “It’s also fun because even though in ‘Godzilla’ we play husband and wife, we don’t have a lot of scenes together. I just love him. I love his family. I love his kids. I’m so excited we get to work with each other more and to actually work with each other. I think it’s going to be fun.”

Avengers: Age of Ultron will hit theaters on May 1, 2015. Production is expect to begin in March 2014. The film is set to be scripted and directed by Joss Whedon and will see Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson reprising their roles from the first film, with Olsen, Taylor-Johnson and James Spader joining the cast in new roles.

It seems it will not happen. Even though Evan Peters in currently set to play the role in X-Men, it was announced that Aaron Tylor-Johnson is in talks to play Quicksilver in Marvel’s The Avengers 2.  Continue reading
