    Does she have an interesting background to make of? I could it see as a Spy thriller without
    the superhero angle.

    First MCU movie I'll skip. She sucks as black widow. Wonder woman was great and looking forward to captain marvel but this is just awful. Now we know this weakling is going to survive Thanos

    She's got some good stories. It'll be interesting to see what they go with.

    That funny. I liked black widow and was thinking that I would watch her in a standalone movie, but once I read your post, I imagined her being played by a Boise dime and suddenly lost all interest

    She's a good supporting character. I don't feel good about having her stand alone movie.

    but who knows, Marvel seems to know the formula to make things work.

    Berlin Syndrome was good, I will check this out in spite of my ambivalence to ScarJo.

    Name 3 (or 5, or 10) greatest movies with strong female leads. See how many of them turn up to have a female director. This has gotten completely out of hand.

    And don't quote WW as an example. Wonder Woman was a half-decent movie, bcs it was the first (again) half-decent DC movie in the recent era, and a long awaited revival of a popular female character. Widow can't compete with that.

    1)Who the fuck is she?

    2)If they make a BW movie, ScarJo better go back to being a redhead. At her age, she can't afford a stupid haircut.

    Theres talk of this being a prequel isn't there? in that case the obvious plot to me would seem to be her turn away from being a ruthlesd mercenary(or controlled by one) potentially involving him.

    Honestly I tend to think the reverse of most here, actually seems one of the more interesting female superheroes along with Gamora because theres some moral conflict present rather than just being "kickass".

    I mean look at recent Starwars, which character would you say is more interesting Rey of Jyn? the former is vastly more powerful yet...

    They should have made this a netflix show with a different actress if its a prequel to avengers . I dont think people care THAT much to go see a movie just with her.

    To be fair though even if it might not be needed for the films sucess I do think theres a MUCH bigger issue with a lack of female directors in Hollywood blockbusters than their is a lack of quality female roles.

    Yeah, not a fan of a solo Black Widow movie. Just seems pointless. It's only getting done to appease the people bitching about the lack of solo female superhero films.

    Has nothing to do with male/female. Hawkeye does not need a movie either. Neither does Nick Fury. There are plenty of Marvel characters to make movies about, makes no sense wasting time in exploring C characters.

    There honestly just aren't many female heroes that it would make sense to make solo films for. They're mostly on teams. And they have prominent positions on those teams.
    Beisdes Captain Marvel, the only 2 others I could think of that would make sense would be She-Hulk and Spider Woman.

    I have been saying for years now that the MCU dropped the ball in not making a She Hulk movie. She has cross-demographic appeal.

    She is an intelligent career woman who essentially turns into a giant green fitness model in a skintight leotard.

    She can both appeal to the "woman power" feminists AND the mouth breathing ince-...Sher-...um red blooded males alike. Pretty much anyone anywhere near the middle would be entertained regardless.

    Depends what you want from a film I spose, those characters are probably not best suited for power fantasys but dramatically they seem interesting to me.

    I still think WInter Solider(in which Widow is close to a co lead) has a case for being the best MCU film, if we get something like that maybe without the larger scale action I'd be perfectly happy.
