‘Civil War’ Directors Joe and Anthony Russo Also Think Black Widow Should Have a Solo Movie

Marvel
Marvel

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is one of the most interesting characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, particularly given her incredibly intriguing back story briefly explored in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Fans have long wondered when or if Natasha Romanoff would get her own solo movie, and while Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has admitted that he’s open to the idea, the studio has yet to reveal any plans for a Black Widow spinoff. But that could still change, and with Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo in her corner, a Black Widow movie could be closer than ever.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ International Trailer Is a Bit Shorter, But No Less Sweet

Civil War preview

“Do you really wanna punch your way out of this?” That’s what Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow asks Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers as a civil disagreement between Cap and Iron Man develops into all out war in the new international trailer for Captain America: Civil War. It’s a little shorter and more streamlined than the first official domestic trailer, but that doesn’t make it any less effective — in fact, this one might be better than the first.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Forces Black Widow to Become the ‘Mediator’

The Mediator sounds like a superhero name all its own, but that's how Black Widow apparently sees herself and her place in Captain America: Civil War. While previous Marvel films have firmly established a good working relationship between Scarlett Johansson's character and Steve Rogers, she'll find herself on the other side of the battle in the studio's next outing — but it's a little more complicated than that.

With Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans promising a big surprise on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we knew it had to be something special — that something is the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Not a teaser, but an actual, full trailer, dramatically highlighting the growing divide between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, which will divide the Avengers and pit them against one another in what could be Marvel's most epic film yet.

How ‘Ant-Man’ Highlights the Sad State of Marvel’s Female Characters

Hope Van Dyne Ant-Man

It’s funny, fitting, and sort of cruel that Ant-Man’s version of the Wasp is named Hope.

The comic-book version of the Wasp is named Janet van Dyne, the longtime romantic and crime-fighting associate of Hank Pym’s Ant-Man. The film’s Ant-Man is Scott Lang (Paul Rudd); its Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is an older man who retired many years earlier. Hope (Evangeline Lilly) is his daughter, grown to adulthood and desperate for the opportunity to be a hero. Her father, though, has other ideas.

Captain America: Civil War seems like it could be another Avengers installment with so many members of the MCU reprising their roles for Cap’s third outing. But that’s kind of the point, since this film is primed to make major waves in the Marvel universe, completely altering the future of our heroes. New set photos definitely confirm how much of a superhero party this is, with Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd and more hanging out on set.

The superheroes at the center of Avengers: Age of Ultron resonate so strongly with so many people because they’re so deeply entrenched in popular culture. Captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk were around for years before Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo were even born. These aren’t just characters – they’re icons. And while serious comic book nerds know how much Earth’s mightiest heroes have changed with the times, taking a look back at what the likes of Black Widow and Hawkeye and the Vision used to look like is both entertaining and (dare we say it?) educational.

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ PR: Now with Slut-Shaming and Rape Jokes!

Marvel
Marvel

By now, it's the "slut" heard 'round the geek world: during their press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron, actors Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans referred to Black Widow respectively as a "slut" and a "whore." They've since apologized - well, Evans apologized, Renner offered something else. Plus, a new clip from the movie reveals a rape joke - something proud feminist Joss Whedon should know better than doing. But is the fuss about these things worthwhile?

Well, yes. Words have meaning. And the words chosen by Renner, Evans, and Whedon in these situations happen to be words that demean women. When Black Widow is routinely left off of Age of Ultron merchandise, the fact that major players in the movie chose these words is extra uncomfortable.
