Stan "The Man" Lee Shares Thoughts On Possibility Of A BLACK WIDOW Movie

Despite being credited as a producer, Stan Lee's involvement with the Marvel Studios movies is really limited to being called in for a cameo. However, he shares his thoughts here on their future plans for the likes of Black Panther and Doctor Strange as well as a possible solo spin-off for Black Widow...

Stan Lee is a legend, but he has no role in what Marvel Studios does with their movies and you have to believe that his knowledge of what they have planned is limited. Of course, that doesn't mean heaing from him isn't still very interesting, and it should come as no surprise to learn that Lee was quizzed about the possibility of a movie for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow during an appearance at Fan Expo Canada this past Friday. After her appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the box office success of Lucy, the demand for the character to get her own spin-off is at an all-time high, and "The Man" had this to say when asked for his thoughts on the matter. "We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about." If Marvel do decide to give Black Widow her own movie, there's one man who is very interested in helming it! Are you guys hoping to see her as part of Phase Three's plans?

So he's 'allowed' to talk about Black Panther?

Verzwei - 8/31/2014, 6:40 PM
I'll take that Black Panther over Black Widow... but I'll still allow them to make a Netflix IF it doesn't hurt the development of future movies.

@DrDoom

Dude, The Strain is gonna be cool tonight. Loved last week's cliffhanger.


I wonder how they'll set this potential Black Widow film up e.g. villains, plot.

Scarlett Is One of The Hottest Red Heads Next to Karen Gillan, Jessica Chastain and Amy Adams
Spideysense44 - 8/31/2014, 6:51 PM

MexicanChinman - 8/31/2014, 6:51 PM
@Omarvls, I bet you're fun at parties.
Bekss - 8/31/2014, 6:52 PM
Years ago he always mentioned Dr Strange and now we know it's coming out in 2016
Then he started talking about Black Panther

He doesn't say which movies they're doing but it's obvious Feige talks with him occasionally.
MexicanChinman - 8/31/2014, 6:53 PM
I dought the Marvel heads really tell him anything important.
JoJo1982 - 8/31/2014, 6:54 PM
So Did Stan Lee just conformed Black panther!?!



Screw all the black widow movie talk, I'm interested in The King of Wakanda movie
MakluIV - 8/31/2014, 6:55 PM
Holy Shit Dude!! Black Panther!!
Bl00dwerK - 8/31/2014, 6:55 PM
Not allowed to talk about? Winter Soldier confirmed!
SuperCat - 8/31/2014, 7:03 PM
Sure. Give her a solo film. But I want Black Panther first. Sick of the wait.
ATrueHero1987 - 8/31/2014, 7:04 PM
I hope BP gets the May 2017 release date.
MODOKillian - 8/31/2014, 7:05 PM
MOON KNIGHT IS ANOTHER PROJECT, I BET YOUR BALLS ON IT
MakluIV - 8/31/2014, 7:05 PM
@Bekss-
Exactly! I remember Stan talking about Doctor Strange, and now it's happening!
This is isn't Todd McFarlane talking, this is STAN THE MAN!
McNyagano - 8/31/2014, 7:07 PM
"They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others"

MODOKillian - 8/31/2014, 7:09 PM
Secret projects:

1) Moon Knight (teased in CA: TWS)
2)Ms Marvel
3) Winter Soldier
4) Secret Avengers with the new characters (Strange, Black Panther, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, others)
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/31/2014, 7:10 PM
Black Panther!!!!
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/31/2014, 7:15 PM
Blade reboot!!!!!!
JoJo1982 - 8/31/2014, 7:17 PM
I think Marvel should start doing some direct to DVD movies..... A Black Widow would be great for that
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/31/2014, 7:17 PM
He's the godfather of marvel he's inclined to be told things. He's not in the boardroom running concepts but he's told about the projects being done believe that
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/31/2014, 7:18 PM
With Disney owning marvel I want some marvel big budget animation films. Competes with DC direct to dvd animation features
0megaDaGod - 8/31/2014, 7:18 PM
This is like 12th time he's confirmed BP

It's coming guys
Marvel1997 - 8/31/2014, 7:19 PM
If I don't get my Solo Mark Ruffalo Hulk movie I will lose my shit. Is it that Marvel Studious still doesn't have enough faith in him for his own solo outing? I think it isn't fair to go by 'The Incredible Hulk' numbers. That was Pre-Avengers and now he has clearly gained TONZ of fans. Please Feige. Thunderbolts/Red Hulk/Gamma World (With the Leader and Abomination) Something
Dingbat - 8/31/2014, 7:22 PM
It's happening! The movie we all want to see...



ATrueHero1987 - 8/31/2014, 7:22 PM
Spideysense44 - 8/31/2014, 7:26 PM

JoJo1982 - 8/31/2014, 7:28 PM
@ omegadagod


Shut up!! shut up!!! shut Up!!!


Excitement level is at a all time high!!!
MFDOOM - 8/31/2014, 7:33 PM
I could have sworn he already confirmed a Black Panther movie being in development years ago, but maybe it's more concrete now.
JohnWilkesBooth - 8/31/2014, 7:35 PM
Black Widow is the worst MCU character. Without a shadow of a doubt. Zero powers, lame back story...

Give me Wasp, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk any day before Black Widow AKA SHIIT CHARACTER
batmanvsuperman - 8/31/2014, 7:39 PM
He don't know what he's talking about
MrBlackjack - 8/31/2014, 7:40 PM
I'll pass on a Black Widow film, but...


Yes please...
GreenLantern519 - 8/31/2014, 7:43 PM
I don't think a Black Widow movie is necessary.
