Apparently, sharing screen time with Avengers like Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth hasn't sated Johansson's desire for more adventures with Natasha Romanoff—better known as Black Widow: She's ready for her spinoff.
Marvel has already stated its desire to make movies with both its A-list characters—like Iron Man, Thor and Captain America—and some heroes a little deeper in the roster. And Johannson, for one, would like to see her sultry spy get the nod:
"I love playing the Widow. I think she's got a very interesting past, a lot of storylines to explore, and certainly Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios' president] loves that character ... I think that Marvel has a very personal relationship with their fans, and I think if the fans want it, and the audience wants it, nothing's impossible. I would love to explore that option as well. Like I said, I love the character and it would be nice to see something nice and gritty."
A prequel, perhaps? Showing how she came to be a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in the first place? And, maybe, delving into her history with Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye?
