Could "The Avengers" director Joss Whedon actually "tip the bucket" on Black Widow?
In a recent interview with MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS: BLACK WIDOW STRIKES, writer Fred Van Lente let slip that Widow's death could very well happen. Click the link for more info!
Marvel.com recently posted an interview with "The Avengers" tie-in comic The Black Widow Strikes writer, Fred Van Lente, in which he let some "titilating" news slip, that Black Widow should indeed start writing her "Bucket List."
Thanks to DCMarvelFreshman for bringing this to the instigating community here on CBM. The following is a exerpt from the interview.
"This is on the same scale as the Marvel movies. We’re working closely with Marvel Studios to have it integrate seamlessly with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Once this is over, they’re welcome to use any of my ideas here for a movie,” Van Lente says with a chuckle. “It was fun to talk to the studio and see what they have in mind for Black Widow, but who knows where she’ll be after 'Marvel's The Avengers'; maybe she doesn’t even make it out at the end?”
Now as always here on CBM, take this with a grain of salt, but as you know, Joss Whedon, writer/director of "The Avengers" is notorious not only for his amazing writing and story telling, but for killing off key characters. For those of you who have seen the classical "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" you should know what I am referring to.
If not, here is part one of the film.
Now as far as I'm concerned, as I stated in past articles, I would cry if he has the audacity to kill off the only female member of the team (excluding Cobie Smulders's Maria Hill). But I have faith that even if perhaps Whedon does decide to kill her off, it will be for the best. (Intro for Ant-Man, Wasp, anyone?) As many of you have come to realize from the recently released photos, it seems Widow and Hawkeye will have a close relationship throughout the film, which makes me wonder, will the possible death of the Femme Fatale make Hawkeye go berserk and show us the Bow and Arrow weilding bad-ass that he is in the comics, well remember, this is all speculation, and it's best to keep it that way.
Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster.
