Seriously, why hasn't this happened yet?

Obviously we're all Black Widow fans here, but how many of us need a solo movie for her like we need air? Friend, you are not alone.

Seriously though, who would look at this brave...

Bold...

Totally badass character...

And think to themselves: "Nah, she doesn't need a movie of her own."

Seriously, how many ways are there to say "ugh"?

Who else knows this feel?

@shannonI5 the sexist mentality that goes on these days is utter bull. Yeah so what a few movies from the past went belly up. that doesn't mean that out of all the female roles out there don't deserve stand alone roles. especially when every movie you have black widow appear in you hint at her back story more and more. stop teasing us and just give us the actual story of her because I feel it would be immensely interesting (again keep in mind no comic book knowledge so all I got to go off of is the movies)
Ugh! Agreed @SerenaMcG @TransAnmeWeirdo @MechelleLesane @SierraWilson16 they seem to think that just because Electra didn't do well, it's not even worth considering! (But the failure of the first Daredevil movie didn't stop them from pursuing a bunch of male-led superhero stories INCLUDING ANOTHER DAREDEVIL)
yes please. I raise my hand so high for a Black Widow movie.馃檵
I think a black widow movie would be very interesting.the little bit of a peek we got at her history in AoU was already pretty mysterious. if Marvel could make an entire movie about her past and her history as a spy it would be very interesting if done the right way
@JonPatrickHyde I definitely see those issues too, but I think they're surmountable. I definitely agree that they're looking at the numbers, but I take issue with the conclusions they've drawn. You mentioned Electra, but the first Daredevil film did just as poorly. So why did they give Daredevil another chance on Netflix, but Electra will only be a side character in the series? (Also see Ultraviolet, Lucy, Aeon Flux). They understand that these movies did poorly, but they don't understand why (it has nothing to do with the lead- it has to do with confusing writing or predictable plots or production problems- see also Green Lantern, Green Hornet, The Incredible Hulk). They're attributing the wrong factors as the cause. I think Natasha is a tough character to work with, but her current solo comics are INCREDIBLE. She has so much depth and the story is so strong even though there really aren't any other characters- the point of those stories is that she's completely isolated. They remind me a bit of the Bourne movies- minus the romantic side plot. I actually think that Captain America Winter Soldier could have easily been her story- reverse the roles she and Steve played, and suddenly it's a film about someone who thought she'd gone good, only to realize she'd switched the KGB for Hydra. I think the problem is that she has a very rich series of inner conflicts that get some exploration in the other films, but they don't have the external conflicts to go with them. They exist in the comics- she has some great adversaries, missions she has to complete, and they bring up a lot of important moral questions. The films haven't really done that for her. Did her feeling alienated in AoU have anything to do with defeating Ultron? Did her being a good agent have anything to do with the antagonist in Iron Man 2? I'm sorry I went a bit overboard haha. Clearly I've thought about this a lot XD
