Joss Whedon Says He Would Return To Marvel Studios To Direct A BLACK WIDOW Movie

Past interviews have pointed to Joss Whedon not particularly enjoying his time working on Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the filmmaker has now revealed that he'd return to Marvel for a certain hero...

IGN caught up with Joss Whedon at Comic-Con yesterday, and they obviously had to ask The Avengers director about a possible return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While he's currently working on something original, it definitely sounds like he'd be willing to reunite with Marvel Studios if they're willing to let him take a crack at that long rumoured and well overdue Black Widow solo movie.

"I think that character really is very interesting and very earthbound, so it’s the kind of action that I got to do less of with somebody like Thor or The Vision," Whedon said of his interest in the hero. "When you get into your ‘Superman’ territory it’s harder to maintain the gritty action that the Russo brothers do so brilliantly and she’s got that kind of thing and [you can] really do a spy thriller. Like really do a good, paranoid, ‘John le Carré on crack’ sort of thing. That would be really fun."
 
As for his thoughts on the actress who plays Black Widow, the filmmaker added: "Scarlett Johansson is just delightful. She works really hard but she just spends most of her time cracking me up, so it would be a fun shoot." Will this happen? That remains to be seen, but Kevin Feige has promised that a movie for the character is being considered, so he'd be wise to hire someone like Whedon...
