According to SlashFilm, Feige commented on the prospect of other Marvel characters getting their own prequel and spinoff movies at a recent press conference, where he reflected on Scarlett Johansson’s solo film Black Widow, which is expected to make his debut. debuts simultaneously in theaters and via Disney + with Premier Access on July 9.
“This movie and this story is definitely a special case for Natasha,” Feige said, emphasizing Natasha Romanoff’s relevance to an MCU origin story. “But the idea of exploring the past, present and future of the MCU is certainly in the cards for all of our characters. This particular story of this particular cast is very personal, very specific to Natasha. “
Set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, when Natasha was a wanted fugitive, the perpetually delayed Black Widow movie will finally give Avenger his due posthumously, with a story that deals with Natasha’s backstory as as spy and assassin, and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
“We never intended to do an origin story,” Johansson previously revealed of his character’s solo release. “I just didn’t want to go back. I kind of wanted to move on – even if we are going back! But it all makes sense when you see it. It was like a good time because Natasha was always part of an operation… She was always an operator and she never really had to, for better or for worse, make decisions for herself . “
“She’s part of that bigger whole, and whether it’s the Red Room or SHIELD or the Avengers, she’s had that kind of family. And then after the civil war, everything was gone. And, for the first time, really right on his own, ”Johansson explained further. “She could totally disappear into the ether, and that would probably be it.” She doesn’t have to go back to anything, which is a pretty terrifying place. “
