Marvel Studios is developing a film that would revolve around Black Widow, the character played by Scarlett Johansson in the “Iron Man” and “The Avengers” franchises.
Studio president Kevin Feige has long been high on the character even before her role was expanded for April’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” When promoting the homevideo release for “Iron Man 2,” in 2010, he said, “We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett (Johansson) about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts, but ‘The Avengers’ comes first.”
But Feige is once again discussing the prospects for a Black Widow film now that “The Winter Soldier” is about to be released on April 4.
“We wanted to change the dynamic of the cinematic universe with this film,” Feige told Total Film magazine in a new interview about the “Captain America” sequel. “We wanted Cap and really the entire cinematic universe to be very different at the end of ‘Winter Soldier’ than it is at the beginning.”
According to Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, Black Widow’s storyline in “The Winter Soldier” revolves around “her coming to terms with her history, that she’s been a spy, and spies aren’t necessarily trustworthy,” he told Total Film.
That will be further explored in “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” out in 2015. Film starts production in March.
“(Black) Widow’s part in that is very big,” Feige said. “We learn more about her past and learn more about where she came from and how she became in that film. The notion of exploring that even further in her own film would be great, and we have some development work with that. When we meet the Avengers at the top of ‘Age of Ultron,’ it’s a very different landscape than we left them at the end of the first film. Partially, that’s because we love the rhythm that the comicbooks have developed — each of the characters appear in their runs, occasionally they get together for a big event or crossover series, they part again, and then they come back together again.”
It’s unclear whether Marvel hopes to have a Black Widow movie become part of its third phase of films, which so far includes “Ant-Man,” “Doctor Strange” and the third installments of “The Avengers” and “Captain America.”

She’s dealt with constant criticism over the years about her body, and now Scarlett Johansson is ready to reveal her true thoughts on the matter in the Spring 2014 issue of Dazed & Confused magazine. The “We Bought a Zoo” beauty donned designer duds from Carl Manzi and Saint Laurent for the Benjamin Alexander Huseby-shot front page while opening up about her famous “womanly” curves.
“How could I wake up every day and be a normal person if I was completely aware that my was being manipulated on a global platform?” Scarlett questioned. “How could I sleep?”
She continued, “You have to have a peace of mind. You’ve got to be able to protect those things. How else could you exist? You’d go crazy, anybody would go crazy…” In regards to whose body she would love to take over for a day, Miss Johansson stated, “Beyoncé – so I could finally get those moves right.”

SodaStream has named Scarlett Johansson as its first celebrity ambassador but will that be enough to get SodaStream pop up again soon? Her voice made Joaquin Phoenix’s character fall in love with her in the movie “Her” and Esquire magazine fell in love with everything else about her. Now 28 year-old Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson is being cast in Super Bowl ads for SodaStream.
The home soda maker is hoping that Johansson, as their first-ever “celebrity ambassador”, will drive up sales significantly. That’s something they very much need at the moment. On Monday, the company lowered its fiscal 2013 guidance after holiday sales came in lower than expected. That’s sent shares down 25% shortly after the announcement.

It’s release date is over a year away, but details are already emerging about the sequel “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow, hinted, “I think the script is dark and it’s dry. It’s got this amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humor.”
However, it’s not going to be another unoriginal money-making attempt trying to capitalize on the success of the first film. She adds, “Obviously the script is very cerebral. It doesn’t lose that exciting comic book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it’s smart and it feels like the next installment. It doesn’t feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plotlines are moving forward.” “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015.
