Stan Lee Thinks It's Time Black Widow Was Given A Solo Film

Marvel legend Stan Lee has had his say on the Black Widow solo movie often requested by fans, telling a reporter recently: "One day there will be a Black Widow movie."

Scarlett Johansson began playing Widow in Iron Man 2, going on to star in The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, and Captain America: Winter Soldier, but she's yet to be given a movie of her own.

Along with Lee, Thor: Ragnarok's director Taika Waititi has also said that he'd like to see the heroine given a movie of her own, and that he'd prefer it to be done with an injection of unexpected humour.

"[I'd like to see] Black Widow as something crazy and a bit funnier than we expect it to be," Waititi told io9. "Because we know her story and it's very sullen and very dark and her history is very dark. But! What's the funny version of that? What's the more entertaining version of that?"

Black Widow will next be seen in Avengers: Infinity War, which is due out next spring.

Scarlett Johansson previously admitted she was interested in doing a Black Widow solo movie, telling Collider: "I think that there's room for a standalone movie.

"The character has a really rich origin story and I've been really fortunate to kind of place all these layers on top of one another and kind of build up this character to this point where I think I can now start to peel them away and reveal different sides of her."

And in February, speaking to a MTV News correspondent at the Oscars, she spoke out on the film's potential time frame, saying: "I'm still trying to wrap my head around Infinity War which is like... the production is an infinity. And then I'll let you know afterward."

So it looks like it will happen, it's just a matter of waiting to see when.
