Default Black Widow should get a TV show

When thinking about what would make for a good TV show, the first two names that come to mind are Runaways and Black Widow.

Runaways is obvious as its an ensemble cast who are busy trying to escape their parents.

With Black Widow, it's more along the lines that she's a globe-trotting super spy and there are simply too many different locations she could go to in a film but spread out over one season, she could visit a while to of different places. That and try out new accents, languages, etc with each new episode. This is a character who was made for TV. Why isn't Marvel trying to develop this yet?

I would rather she had a solo film, than a television program. She and Hawkeye are in need of a film featuring both of them (and no other Avengers) or their own solo features.

I would love to see a BW/HE one-shot; possibly something relating to Budapest. But (and this is just my opinion, obviously) there are too few movie slots, and far too many other interesting possibilities, to spend one on BW.

Actually, the ones that come to mind are Daredevil, Tomb of Dracula and Agent Carter, Black widow is portrayed by an expensive actress.

I think shes fine being a supporting hero. If she absolutely had to be expanded then a TV show would be better than a movie since she clearly couldn't carry a movie by herself

Is Scar Jo willing to do TV? I'd rather have her as the subject of the next One Shot than Trevor Slattery.

And again, I think Runaways is best suited for Animated.

It would be a good way to give Hawkeye more screen time too, but I doubt Renner and Scar Jo would do a tv show at this stage in their career.

Maybe give them a 30 minute One Shot or something, to go along with the CA:TWS when it's released on Blu-ray and DVD.

Scar Jo isn't going to be on a tv show anytime soon

Agreed. She needs a solo film.

Give Captain Marvel a TV Show. Or Monica Rambeau. or Heroes For Hire/Daughters Of The Dragon.

Captain Marvel would require too large a budget for TV. Monica isn't popular enough (we'll see if Mighty Avengers changes that) and Heroes for Hire would be cool in concept, but Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Daredevil and Punisher all deserve their own films.

No chance of this happening unless Scarjo is recast

Nah. I reckon widow suits a movie better.

If they want the spy and intrigue stuff make a winter soldier tv series

Even if Scarlett Johansson is up for a TV show, I would still prefer a solo movie.
