Black Widow will have a huge part in The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Jul. 25, 2013by: Niki Stephens

With one finished draft for THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON behind him, Joss Whedon might be able to offer up more details on what we can look forward to. Fans are pretty curious as to what the sequel has in store especially since the original storyline is taking a different turn.

The latest tidbit has to do with Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) will get more time on-screen this time around according to Joss Whedon:

Natasha is a huge part of the sequel because you do want to concentrate on the people who dont have their own franchises. Although she in Cap 2, [and] shes great. She was the most fun for me because shes not a hero, you know, and its something that I readand I feel bad that I cant remember who wrote the bookbut its in one of the books explaining, These guys are heroes, you are a spy. Its a different thingits a different skill setand you dont have their moral high ground or any of that good stuff. And that just makes her so interesting to me. So yeah, the stuff Ive got going on with her in the second one is killer.

Below is the interview in its entirety with Nerd HQ:

That said, will Black Widow ever get her own solo movie? Or has the time already past? While Whedon does write wonderful strong-willed female characters, why does this one in particular only get a "huge part" in an assemble hero flick? These questions aside, it's nice to hear that Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) will have more screentime as well (I can hear my buddy Paul squeeing somewhere). As one character I was looking to seeing on the big screen, he got little facetime.

Now enjoy this hypnotizing gif...

Well this could work. If Ms. Potts were to die tragically Tony would basically have a melt down and refuse to make any more suits. Black Widow would be sent by Fury to convince him to get back in the game. Tony instead spends his time on creating a robot to fight crime for him thus creating the early beginnings of Ultron. At the same time she will try to console him over the loss. It would add nice emotional depth to both characters while keeping some continuity from Iron Man 3.

I'm with Joss 100% on this. I think even early on its clear they've been setting up Black Widow to be a major factor down the road. The way Stark reacts to her initially in Iron Man 2...saying she's 'hard to get a read on' and 'an old soul.' Then the flickers of her backstory we heard in Avengers, no doubt to be expanded upon in Cap 2. Unlike the others, we haven't had her origin explained to us in finite detail in a $500 million box office movie. She's a slowburn character like Snape from

And I really dig ScarJo's performance. Not just saying that as a fan (I adore Natalie Portman, but goddamn girl could you have asked more rhetorical questions in 'Thor?') She's playing a real spy...needing to keep her emotions behind the Berlin Wall of poker faces, and carefully uses displays of emotion to twist whoever she's spying on to her will. The only time we've seen her display real fear is around Banner, and I imagine that is the direction Joss might be going in.

If I had to guess who Joss might be planning to kill in Avengers 2 (and lord knows he's as homicidal with his characters as George RR Martin)...Stark and Natasha top my list.

Hawkeye seems like a likely candidate. Downey officially signed on for 2 more Avengers, so he won't be dying in The Age of Ultron.

I like the way Whedon handled the character in the first movie. He gave her depth and vulnerability that is hard to achieve with the likes of other more powerful superheros. That said, I hope she doesn't take over the film too much as at the end of the day, it is about seeing the big name players take the forefront. I've got faith in Joss.

As for ScarJo's expanded role it doesn't make or break the movie for me. She hasn't been terribly interesting to me so far but has had a couple of cool scenes. As others below have pointed out I think this revelation definitely points in the direction of a particular plot twist.

Schmoes, we need to talk.

I love this site and I love the community that follows it. We're casual and fun and lighthearted and love a good movie when we see one, love a bad movie for it's insane parts, and hate on shitty movies with a vengeance. But lately, I'm beginning to think that a lot of so-called "moviebuffs" are walking around with too many ticket stubs stuck up their ass. How is there so much negative backlash for this news?

It's like everyone's a movie critic these days. Since when did "more Scarlett" and "dat ass" get so many red bars on this site? It looks like the new trend is to over-analyze, jump to conclusions, and f*cking piss all over major franchises simply because - God forbid - the director said something that YOU thought was going to damage the story. Shut the f*ck up and enjoy stuff once in a while. First everyone's hating on the Superman-Batman film and now "more Black Widow" gets a negative backlash. Jesus, lighten up and learn to have some faith. It's f*cking Joss Whedon after all. End of rant.

To be fair, the Superman/Batman film is following the continuous plot-holes, bland characters, messy shaky cam action and character assassination that was Man of Steel, at least the hate there has a justification.

Hating on anything involved in a follow up to The Avengers at this point is utterly mental though.

@Guy : MoS was far from perfect but it was nowhere near as bad as X3 or Green Lantern for people to be so spiteful of something as massive as Superman-Batman. I just think people are becoming self-proclaimed movie experts a lot. Are you a Game Of Thrones fan? You know how everyone says they're defending "the realm" when in fact all they're doing is f*cking things up because everyone thinks he / she / they know best? It's kinda like that.

It's nothing personal, but I get tired of this argument. People come to this site and sites like it to talk about movies. Maybe they don't have people around them that share their interests or tastes and this is a place to talk about something they are passionate about. To say that it is necessary for everyone to only have cheery and positive attitudes about all of the film news presented every day is a little ridiculous.

Everyone has a right to their opinion and to share that opinion.

Everyone has a right to their opinion and to share that opinion. Arguing the merits or lack thereof in films, news or even rumors with knowledgable people, whether I agree with them or not, is what makes it interesting for me. If this only existed as a cinematic cheerleader society I would be the first one out the door.

Also, just to add fuel to the fire, Man of Steel disappointed me almost as much, if not more than X-Men 3.

Man of Steel had far loftier and self-important ambitions, and not only completely missed the mark on those, where everyone talks in grand speeches and the mood is constantly dour and grim (it's superman!) but also the action was far too shaky, visually noisy and un-defendable in terms of the character.

Not only could I not see what was going on, but there was no fun to be had in the times that I could.

Whereas X3 was an utterly disappointing let down for that trilogy, but at least it can be enjoyed on a fluffy brainless popcorn level, and could quite clearly see the mutants jumping needlessly on to Wolverine's claws.

i don't think people are spite-ful of Batman/Superman, I just think we can all already see where that movie is going in terms of mood, and we can already feel the mistakes being made not only in the execution of the previous movies, but also in the rushing to get a Justice League movie made in order to play catch up with Marvel. Everything DC is doing right now reeks of desperation and misunderstanding of their source material.

However I don't get people complaining about Marvel. Other than people having a concern about the swerve of the Mandarin in IM3, they've been utterly on top of the ball in regards to their movies atmosphere and characters. And in fact, people seem to be complaining here about Whedon fleshing out characters that the same people were complaining about being under-developed in the last movie.

It's mental to see people saying Black Widow is a shit character with no depth, when that's the EXACT reason that Joss is giving her more to do in the first place, to erase that image.

And then there's the borderline sexist lot who only seem to care how much cleavage there'll be in the next film, the relevance of which just boggles the mind in an age of unlimited access to internet porn.

I think some of you misunderstood my comment. I'm not against people having opposite opinions, nor am I against people being unhappy about something. What puts me off is people saying negative things for no apparent reason just because it's the new cool thing to do. "Oh, it's a critical and commercial success? Let's nitpick and find something to complain about!" I used to think that this sort of mentality existed on other sites with "elitist" communities consisting of people who assumed they

Let's nitpick and find something to complain about!" I used to think that this sort of mentality existed on other sites with "elitist" communities consisting of people who assumed they were experts of cinema, but unfortunately it's starting to creep in here as well.

Again, I'm not saying people should always be cheery about every single bit of news, but this trend of whining about something as trivial as "ScarJo will have more screentime" is crazy. Whedon never said "Less Iron Man, More Black Widow", he just said "More Black Widow". How is this wrong? What's the negative here? Yet even with a track record like Whedon's, so-called moviebuffs will find something supposedly intelligent to say like "Flat character, adds nothing to the story, I don't see why this has to happen, whine whine boo hoo". It's getting annoying, that's all I'm saying.

And use "film words" like "character development" all you want, but you'll be there opening night for Avengers 2 without the slightest memory of ever complaining about ScarJo's added screentime, because you had no basis to complain about it to begin with. Geez.

Did I miss something in Whedon's quote, or maybe a previous article? When did it say that Hawkeye would be getting more screen time? I'd like to see them give him more screen time, but it seems like you just through that in there as a fact with nothing to back it up.

This isn't "let's increase her role because everyone loves Black Widow", it's "let's increase her role because she's Scarlett Johannson". Giving her more screentime in favour of the characters people actually care about (y'know - actual Avengers) seems kinda pointless. Black Widow is a pretty generic character - no good reason to make these films 'about' her. Barely needs to be in them at all. There are plenty of female hero characters they could include - Black Widow is an easy/cheap option.

Renner/Hawkeye

It's too bad Renner signed a multi-picture deal and can't just bail on this shit. They really fucked him over in the first one. He probably has the best solo career going outside of maybe Downey Jr., even that stupid Hansel & Gretel movie was a success, and he, Ruffalo and D.Jr. are pretty easily the best actors in the whole troop.

People bitch about his Hawkeye sucking but what the fuck did they give the guy to do? I'm a fan of the character and the actor so I was pumped for Avengers, and

Totally agree with you. When the actual Hawkeye showed up at the end, not the zombie version, Renner pulled off a good Hawkeye. I'm not sure why people bitch about him in the Avengers, he nailed the role for what it was. It's not his fault the writers relegated him to a minor subplot/villain's henchman.

I guess it was a way to pay homage to the comic book Hawkeye's past as a villain, but honestly they just screwed up. And if you sign up, pardon me, Joe Blow for the part then fine, do what you want, but hiring a well known star and recent two time academy award nominee like Renner gives the impression you have plans for the character. Clearly, they didn't. I think Renner had faith they would do right by him, as they had for the others, when he signed up and they just didn't.

This sounds awesome! Marvel has yet to let me down, and what Whedon accomplished with 'The Avengers' was damn near perfection. This sounds like a neat and interesting way to go, plus Ms. Johansson is amazing as Black Widow.

So while many probably aren't thrilled that it sounds like the focus might be placed too heavily on Black Widow, a) it's very early days and b) Joss Whedon did nothing short of an expert balancing job writing and directing all those heavyweight characters together in one film with the first Avengers, so I'm sure he knows what he's doing here.

Am I the only one who thought Scarjo was stiff as a board 95% of the time in Avengers? I thought it was a very weak performance given her track record. Loved the film, but Hawkeye, Fury, and BW were three head scratchers the way they were handled

You are not the only one. She phoned that shit in. I liked her better in Iron Man 2. And that's not saying much.

I agree with you man, she just seemed so stiff when an alien race is coming towards them.

I'm ok with spending more time characters who don't have a solo film in this phase, but I wish Joss was applying that more to Banner/Hulk than Black Widow. Natasha would have been in Iron Man 2 and Captain America 2, and had a pretty big part in Avengers (I'd say even more so than Thor). Sure we had Incredible Hulk with Norton, but I'm curious to see Ruffalo get a chance to do more with the character.

Spoilers

The last line is a dead give away to what he has planned.

In the Ultimates, it turns out that Black Widow has been siding with the bad guys the entire time. She betrays Iron Man and murders Hawkeyes wife and children.

In the first Avengers they dropped little hints that they might move forward with something like this, but if Whedon is saying her role in the second is "killer", I'm sure this is why.

Oh Goody!

She can kick my ass any time of the day. Seriously though, I love Whedon's reasoning behind this. I'm looking forward to seeing what else he's incorporating into her character.

Very excited to hear that Jeremy Renner will have more screen time as Hawkeye. I can understand his frustration with his role in the first Avengers, but hopefully he can put it aside this time around and really deliver this time around. It would be nice to see him have some of his own heroic moments this time around.

Hawkeye is just too cool of a character not to use more and Renner is too great of an actor to not be used more.

Ehhh

Probably the most uninteresting of the Avengers but I guess I have to give Whedon the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Please give her Iron Man 2 hair like the gif above. God she was gorgeous in that one. She was hot in Avengers but the shorter is meh by comparison.

I don't agree. In IM2 it looked like she had a mop on her head.

She's going to die

I'm glad we're getting more Black Widow.

Yep. Typical Whedon. She'll finally find her morality/humanity by dying in some sacrificial and redeeming manner. (She'll probably have a witty one-liner right before she dies as well.)

Highly unfortunate, can't stand Scarjo or the character to be honest. I would rather have a hero have a huge role like lets say Scarlet Witch.
