'Black Widow' movie will focus on the heroine's origin
After a standalone film for Black Widow has been confirmed post “The Avengers”, lead actress Scarlett Johansson says it will be a prequel.
The 27-year-old actress, who played the gun-wielding hero in the film, said she and Marvel Studios have ‘spoken a lot’ about developing a film that follows the heroine’s origin in Russia, reported Ace Showbiz.
“I love her origin story. I think it’s just such a riveting one. 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,” she said.
If Joss Whedon doesn’t write this I will be very angry.
Because I swear to God most writers can’t write female action heroes for shit.
And he isn’t perfect but damnit he’s better than nothing.
