Black Widow will have a huge part in The Avengers: Age of Ultron
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 don’t have their own franchises. Although she in Cap 2, [and] she’s great. She was the most fun for me because she’s not a hero, you know, and it’s something that I read—and I feel bad that I can’t remember who wrote the book—but it’s in one of the books explaining, ‘These guys are heroes, you are a spy. It’s a different thing—it’s a different skill set—and you don’t have their moral high ground or any of that good stuff.’ And that just makes her so interesting to me. So yeah, the stuff I’ve 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.
