When you take a look at the Marvel movies that are coming out within the next four years you see pure gold. The new captain America, Antman, Dr. strange, and the new avengers movie age of Ulrton. Everyone was extremely excited when the list of the movies came out. Although one thing still remains unseen. A black widow movie. Natasha Romanoff also known as black widow is the female component to the avengers. This agent of Shield with “red on her ledger”, is possibly one of the coolest additions of the team. A master of all martial arts, fantastic shot with a gun, and just the right amount of sass to keep Tony Stark AKA Iron Man, on his toes. So in saying that why don’t we have her backstory movie yet? When asked about a black widow movie nothing has been said directly from the Marvel company, however there are speculation that Marvel does not want to pursue a female lead superhero movie as there is not a “big enough” audience to go to such a movie. They also said that about Guardians of The Galaxy, a more recent movie that Marvel had put out. Since Guardians of the Galaxy does not include Captain America, the Hulk, or Thor, or the other “more we’ll known” heros, they were a little more open in what they did with this movie, pushing the envelope. They ended up breaking up box office records for the month of August and immediately announced a second movie. So for this movie that they did not expect to do well actually beat records, so why can they not do the same thing with a black widow movie? It does not matter what marvel puts out people will go see it.
If you build it, the will come (Field of Dreams, 1989)
Although Field of Dreams may have been a movie about baseball, the theory still stands, if you make a Black Widow movie, people will see it. The following that this company has could put out The worst movie ever made in theory, (I believe that it’s impossible for Marvel to make a bad movie) yet people would still go to it because they love the cinematic marvel universe that much. If they can take a risk and make guardians of the galaxy what’s the problem with the backstory for black widow, people want it, people will see it, and it would be great. The 50’s are long since past a strong female lead who isn’t being tied to train tracks can and, will make money. So take the dive Marvel and give me my strong female hero!
If you can can take a risk with Guardians of the Galaxy you can take a risk with A Black Widow movie.
