Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has confirmed that discussions are already in the works to have Scarlett Johansson reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff in a Black Widow spinoff film, though the project will take a backburner while The Avengers is in development.

“We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts,” said Feige in a press conference for the Iron Man 2 Blu-ray/DVD today, “but ‘The Avengers’ comes first.”

Johansson is reprising her role as the character in the ensemble film, heading into production with Joss Whedon at the helm and planned for a summer 2012 release.

:???: I hope that her role in The Avengers is larger than it was in Iron Man 2! :roll:



This is not a good idea. Does anyone remember how bad “Elektra” and “Catwoman” were?

Plus, “Iron Man 2″ wasn’t that great of a film to begin with. She should do something else.



I too, hope this film doesn’t happen. There has to be much more exciting things for her to pursue instead of reprising Black Widow again…

That Black Widow killed my career stone dead :sad:
