Black Widow is somewhat the most mysterious hero character in Marvel Cinematic Universe. Last week, the directors for [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409), Joe and Anthony Russo said that they would love to direct a Black Widow movie. They made that statement during their interview with Collider. The idea of the Russos as a director to the movie is perfect. They directed Scarlett Johansson in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and they will also direct her in the next Avengers: Infinity War movies. That would made their work a lot easier on handling the character since they had so many experiences to work with Scarlett and her character.
Besides that, Clark Gregg, the actor who plays fan favorite Agent Phil Coulson also said that he think Black Widow needs her own movie and it is long overdue. He said that Scarlett is a great actress and she is one of Marvel's biggest assets and it would be a waste if Marvel did not take this chance to have a stand-alone Black Widow movie. As a fan, I could not agree more. We do need to see a Black Widow movie. Lets discuss on 5 things we need to see in a Black Widow movie.
- Black Widow's origin
We've seen some of her origins in both Avengers movies especially Avengers: Age of Ultron with the under appreciated Black Widow flashback scene. We know she was trained since she was little and was sterilized so she could not have children. She said to Loki in the first movie about Hawkeye saving her instead of killing her thus making her joined S.H.I.E.L.D.
We want to see that in greater detail. We all want to see what happened between her and Hawkeye. We want to see her day pre-S.H.I.E.L.D. We want to see her being the bad ass assassin she was made to be.
- Political thriller
We all know that Black Widow was a former KGB operative/assassin. Seeing her evolve as a character will be one hell of a story! From KGB to S.H.I.E.L.D will make this awesome political thriller movie. Imagine a movie like Captain America: The Winter Soldier set in the 90's or early 2000's featuring a Russian spy/assassin killing people and getitng caught in trouble. Come on Marvel! Do it already.
Besides, we all love Captain America: Winter Soldier. It was a great political thriller set during present time. It would be lovely to see Bourne-esq Marvel movie with Black Widow since is time sets in the 90's or early 2000's.
Hawkeye was the reason she joined S.H.I.E.L.D. As a cameo or as a sidekick even as the side villain, Hawkeye appearance is a must. With this, we could also see more from the character which can be said as the least favorite avenger even after those farm scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel can save themself some hustle from making a Hawkeye movie.
It would be awesome to see more Hawkeye VS Black Widow. I am really curious on how Clint Barton managed to persuade S.H.I.E.L.D and Natasha at the same time. More Hawkeye = Awesome!
- S.H.I.E.L.D pre-Avengers
We have seen S.H.I.E.L.D during Agent Carter times and post Avengers times. I would love to see the organization before Nick Fury was even director. We could have cameos from all S.H.I.E.L.D agents like Nick Fury, Maria Hill and even those from the television series Agents of Shield. Speaking of Agents of Shield,
- Phil Coulson
This is the right moment to bring back Agent Phil Coulson back to the MCU. Although this will be some sort of a prequel but fans has been clamoring for more of him in the movies. Even a cameo like he was in the Iron Man movie is enough to make fans excited! Clark Greg, I am sure he will be happy to be in the movie.
That is about everything we want to see in a Black Widow movie. Its about time for us to get another female led superhero movie. Marvel already have Captain Marvel and DC already slated Wonder Woman, but having a stand-alone or Black Widow/Hawkeye team up movie will not hurt anyone. Make it happen Marvel!
