Kevin Feige has taken part in a group Q&A session in order to promote the imminent release of Iron Man 2 on DVD and Blu-ray. As well as the relevant questions (ie. the ones about the imminent release of Iron Man 2 on DVD and Blu-ray) he was also served up a couple of news-seeking missiles.
As well as being pushed to reveal what Marvel might be showing off at Comic-Con next year (no, really) Feige was also asked, simply:
Has there been any more talk of a Black Widow solo movie?
To which he replied, just as simply:
We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts, but The Avengers comes first.
So, there you have it. Discussions with Scarlett Johansson are ongoing, concepts are being out together. Does this mean the marvel brain trust are having days in the writer’s room talking about just what scrapes the Widow could get up to? I’d be surprised if it’s gotten that far.
