AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Co-Director Joe Russo Thinks A BLACK WIDOW Movie Is Coming

After being a part of the MCU for years, reports have been pointing to Black Widow finally getting her own film by 2020. Now, Infinity War co-director, Joe Russo, has briefly commented on that possibility.

Avengers: Infinity War is nearly here, and with its arrival fans have been treated to a steady stream of interviews with various members of the cast and crew. The latest interview sees Joe Russo, half of the film’s directing duo, answering questions alongside one of Infinity War’s producers, Trinh Tran.

Among the questions facing the director and producer were a number about the importance of having female voices in the film industry.

The female voice is very important,” Tran explained. “What’s great about working with Joe and Anthony at Marvel is that they allow those voices to be heard.” The producer also discussed more specifically the presence of female characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by saying heroes like Black Widow and Captain Marvel are characters that "little girls can look up to."

Following Tran's mention of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, the two were asked whether this means the former Russian Spy could be getting her own solo film. While the question seems to have been meant somewhat as a joke, Joe Russo did reply by simply saying, "I think it's coming."

Given the context around that question, it's entirely possible the director was simply having some fun and was merely speculating on the character's future. After all, the director has already expressed his excitement for a possible Black Widow film. However, given the director is use to answering questions like these more carefully, it's interesting that he would provide a seemingly more definitive answer about the possibility of fans a Black Widow film.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe. Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay. “Avengers: Infinity War” releases in U.S. theaters on April 27, 2018.
