Please, please, please can we have a Black Widow solo movie? There are still a couple of "Untitled Movie" slots on the Marvel rostrum up to 2020, so we can keep hope alive that this long overdue addition to the superhero canon will be realized.
Scarlett Johansson herself spoke to Variety about the possibility of starring in a Black Widow solo movie, and she has some cool ideas about the direction:
"I would like for it to happen under the right circumstances. I think there’s a lot of opportunity to mine that story line. She’s got a really rich origins story. There’s a lot of places you can go — you can bring it back to Russia. You could explore the Widow program. There’s all kinds of stuff that you could do with it. You could really uncover the identity of who this person is, where she comes from and where she’s part of."
Maybe it's the sadist in me, but I'd particularly like to see more of how Black Widow deals with fools who dare to cross her.

Johansson thinks that the Black Widow solo movie could be a prequel, but points out that there are a whole bunch of cool options available:
"It’s a possibility. There’s plenty of back story. Or not. It could be something else. Where do the Avengers go? They are underground. What happens then? What happens after it all falls apart? There are so many ways you can go. I think it would just have to be very much like its own specific thing. It would have to have its own specific vibe. It would have been totally different than any of the other standalone films. I think if the fans wanted it enough, then it would probably become a reality."
She's still very much in talks with Marvel about a potential Black Widow movie:
"Yeah, of course. I talked to them about it often. It would have to fit in the idea of where they want to go. I’m invested in that character. Marvel is greatly invested in that character. If I did it, I’d have to do it while I still actually wanted to wear a skin-tight catsuit. I don’t know how much longer that’s going to be."
