Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron
is poised to become one of the biggest blockbusters of all time, and it's all-star cast
are becoming pop-culture icons.
However, while Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America have all had standalone films, the fan favorite Black Widow has been relegated mainly to the role of back-up or sidekick. Would she ever consider her own movie?
ET's Nancy O'Dell revealed to Johansson that Avengers director Joss Whedon had recently said Black Widow should star in her own film.
"From his lips to Marvel's ears, I guess," Johansson said, laughing. "I'll do it if he'll direct it."
For his part, Whedon has announced that he's stepping away from the Avengers franchise, and that Age of Ultron is going to be his last film associated with the series.
Whedon reiterated that point on the red carpet. "There is a no win situation. I love the characters and the whole cast. My crew, everybody working at Marvel," he told ET. "I am going to be sad when I go home and sleep. Then I will wake up, still be sad, but I'm going to lie around for a while and be sad instead of rushing."
While a Black Widow movie -- especially one directed by Whedon -- might not come around any time soon, the beloved character is still going to be appearing on screen.
"I'll be back for Captain America 3 and we start shooting that in like a month or something," Johansson assured ET. "So there will be more Widow!"
