At San Diego Comic-Con, Joss Whedon (director of Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron) said he would definitely be interested in directing Marvel’s Black Widow movie!
Well… what he really said was, “Duh!”
But, I’ll interpret that as, yes, Whedon is totally freaking interested in directing the Black Widow movie! (If Marvel decides to make the film, that is!)
In an interview with IGN, Whedon said the following:
“If somebody pointed to me and said, ‘You want to make a Black Widow movie?’ the answer would be ‘Duh.’ For two reasons– I think that character really is very interesting and very earthbound and so it’s the kind of action that I got to do less of with somebody like Thor or The Vision.
When you get into your Superman territory it’s harder to maintain that sort of gritty action that the Russo brothers do so beautifully. And she’s got that kind of thing… And really do a Spy-Thriller, really do a good, paranoid sort of John LeCarré on crack sort of thing.
Also, Scarlett Johansson [who plays Black Widow] is just delightful. She works really hard, but she just spends most of her time cracking me up, so it would be a fun shoot.”
I LOVE this idea! This “Spy-Thriller” concept has me over the moon!!!! I am a huge Black Widow fan. Her character is multidimensional, fun, badass, and intriguing.
And I think the fact that Whedon and Johansson seemingly have great professional chemistry, could only add to the awesomeness of this film. I really hope it happens.
