With rumors flying around the movie news world that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow may be getting her own solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, actor Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier in the MCU, says if the film ever happens, he wants to be a part of it. Stan expressed his desires in an interview with BadTaste:
“They have a very nice history in my opinion. It’s very intricate. He was a teacher to her [in the comics]. It’s all set during a specific, interesting time. The Cold War. It’s all very … spy, thrillerish, noirish story … it would be very interesting to explore that on film. I would love if they do that. You know, I hope. Maybe they will. Yeah, there is. It’s so much … I think that [there is] a scene between Black Widow and the Winter Soldier. There are other pressing issues to deal with. But it’s nice to have that there. It’s a great opportunity that one day we might explore. It depends on how they feel.”
Taking an espionage angle just may be the right way to go about a Black Widow solo film. For one, she’s a spy. Another reason is that it could bring a new sort of twist into the MCU. Having Bucky/Winter Soldier join her sounds like a great idea. As for now, the film hasn’t officially been announced, though the rumors are heating up. I’m sure the bigwigs over at Marvel have at least thrown out the idea. I would say a Black Widow film is likely, but it won’t be in the near future.
Black Widow and the Winter Soldier together? Sounds good to me! Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!
