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.
OMG THIS IS HAPPENING? I DIDN’T KNOW! HOLY SHIT I’M SO EXCITED! Will Hawkeye be in it? Will there also be a Hawkeye film? OH GOD BLACK WIDOW IS HAPPENING!
