    Oh I would love to see a Natasha TV series, maybe season 1 could be a prequel and we see her backstory and how she first meets Hawkeye and gets recruited for SHIELD.

    The issue with that is stardom and $$. Scarlett is too big a movie star and makes far too much money in movies now for a Netflix series to be viable. (she's making $17.5m for Ghost In The Shell) If it were to happen it would have to be with another actress and somehow I don't think the fans would be as excited for it in that case.

    Well yeah..but given the work they did (apparently the pushed for Black Widow to be featured more prominently in the film) with Natasha on Winter Soldier, I'd trust them to do a movie about her too.

    Hopefully Civil War confirms that.

    Well I think the most important thing is BW getting her own movie. That's the bottom line for me, I would take any awesome director who cares about her character to do it.

    Yeah,it's getting a bit out of hand imo. We don't even know how CW will turn out,thinking they can do everything and no wrong might settle for disappointment. BUT they certainly would be a great choice for Widow.

    They did a live screening of the Winter Soldier at New Orleans Comic Con and said it during that.

    ETA: Doesn't seem to be up anymore. They were talking about it during the scene were Natasha picks up Cap in the Corvette.

    Did they mention anything about Sharon or EVC during the live screening? Hopefully Screen Junkies uploads it on youtube.

    Yep. One perceived stumble and all of sudden they'll be treating them like Whedon - the new Fredo of the MCU.

    Even if a BW film was green lit in order for them to direct it it would have to wait another 5 years to come out because they'll kind of be a bit busy with IW 1 &2 until 2019.

    "Our new challenge is that this universe is bigger than the Avengers," said Johansson. "There’s a school of thought that it needs oversight and management, some kind of ground rules. That seems logical -- though Cap and I have had a bad experience with 'The Man,' so to speak." What Black Widow’s really concerned with, though, is Bucky Barnes -- the Winter Soldier. "Barnes is a total wildcard. He can’t really be trusted because he’s been psychologically compromised. He still poses a threat. I think that’s how Natasha would see it." - Scarlett Johansson

    So this is the quote from the Empire article. It totally makes sense to me that Natasha would find Barnes to still be a threat. But my question is - do you think this means that the movie may touch on the past between Winter Soldier and Black Widow?

    It's actually fairly in line with how things went in 616 - Nat took a while to trust that he wasn't still a threat there, too.
    And I think it's gonna come down to how Nat is someone who'd understand Bucky's capabilities and mental state better than anyone. She's been through the same experiences so it's no wonder she has her guard up. They will probably bring up bits of her backstory to at least explain why she gets him.

    I don't mind if it helps develop their backstory, but I hope they don't go the Bucky/Nat romance route. The idea of it does nothing for me.

    It is rather amusing though. Not only was she indoctrinated as a child to be cold blooded killer but her best friend was brainwashed by Loki into killing and the guy she fell in love with was a rage induced green monster with serious control issues who's mind has been messed with in both Avengers films. In the first he tried to kill her and in the second he tried to take out Johannsberg.

    Given her own training from childhood as a spy and assassin, BW is probably the one person, other than his former (or maybe current?) handlers that fully understands the lethal potential of TWS.

    And, as a slight aside, might I say that the references to characters as being a "wildcard" and having a "pivotal role" in these interviews are being made with an amusing frequency in these interviews. I mean, how many wild cards and pivots can you include in a plot?

    (I'm obviously continuing to work on managing my expectations. :) )
