So how do you pose a threat to a demigod, a supersoldier, a man in an indestructible metal suit and a hulking green juggernaut? With Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man and Chris Evans' Captain America exiting the MCU after Endgame, the only remaining, active members of the original Avengers were Thor, Bruce Banner, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. While the project is still in development, we'll likely hear more about it and other reported and confirmed MCU movies in the pipeline once Avengers: Endgame is out.
3 on hold, for how long is currently unknown, it seems like Marvel's next big project will be the Black Widow solo movie. The only issue there is that Scarlett Johansson much older than her character would be for a flashback movie like that. Scarlett Johansson took a glamorous turn on the red carpet at Monday's world premiere of "Avengers: Endgame" in Los Angeles.
Even the all-powerful Captain Marvel—who likely could have fixed all this on her own—is strangely underutilized in this movie. Perhaps Black Widow has a mission in the former Eastern Block that requires a special set of skills… skills that she knows the Devil of Hell's Kitchen possesses.
It took over ten years for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have a project centered on a female superhero, and the result has been the sixth biggest worldwide opening ever for a film. Chief among them is the Black Widow solo movie, which will finally give Scarlett Johansson's signature Avenger the spotlight she deserves.
Almost a decade after Marvel began to first consider it, a Black Widow movie has finally been greenlit by Disney for a 2020 release, with the MCU's Scarlett Johansson returning to the role of Natasha Romanoff Natalia Alianovna Romanova for a prequel focusing on the agent's early days as a Russian super spy.
