It’s in the public domain that Marvel Cinematic universe will systematically expand to include 68 characters who will appear in Avengers Infinity War Part 1 and 2, this has set off a kind of competition among every major character in the MCU now wanting to get more screen time before it becomes outdated.
There has been a lot of pressure on Marvel studios to launch a female superhero franchise after DC greenlit Wonder woman standalone movie. Recently, the Russo brothers during the conversation at Smithsonian Institute made an announcement that Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers will be in Infinity wars movies to be released in May 2018 & May 2019. Kevin Feige (president of Marvel studios) said that it’s only a matter of time before we get a Black widow solo movie.
In a poll done by an entertainment agency Fandango at the behest of USA Today, it was revealed that Marvel fans overwhelmingly are in favor of an independent Black widow solo movie (48%), followed by Vision (15%), Falcon (12%), Hawkeye (10%), War Machine (8%) and Scarlet witch (7%). Scarlett Johansson has been lobbying for years now to get an independent movie based on the character of “Black widow”, Jeremy Renner who plays Hawkeye in the MCU pitched an original Netflix series on the character.
Elizabeth Olsen, the actress who played Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America Civil War, is open to an idea of her own solo movie. She said as reported by Huffington post: “It’s not something I’m opposed to, but it’s also something that has to make a lot of sense. I wouldn’t just do it. It’d have to make sense for how it advances in the world. But I’d be open to talking about it. I’d never say no to just an idea.”
But given the Marvel calendar, it’s possible only in phase 4 which would commence from 2020.
