Unlike Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America, only now will the “Black Widow” win a solo film exploring her trajectory through the MCU.
But could it be the same with other characters?
In an interview with SlashFilm, Kevin Feige, Creative Director of Marvel Studios, suggested yes.
While promoting the debut of “Black Widow,” the filmmaker said it all comes down to the characters who can generate the same appeal that Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) has generated over the years.
“This film and this story are special for Natasha. But the idea of exploring the past, present, and future of the MCU is something we definitely plan for most of our characters. This story and this particular cast are very personal, very specific to Natasha. We just need to find out what other characters can spark such interest in audiences. “
Still, Feige explained that other films like this would only happen if the story was creative and compelling enough.
“We knew there had been a huge period in Natasha’s life that sparked curiosity… Not just her childhood and how she became that KGB assassin, but also the gap between ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Avengers: Endless War.’ This movie isn’t just about her, we’re exploring a past that will lead to the permanence of her legacy.
It should be remembered that these stories do not need to be glued only to the cinema, but can also be built into TV series, such as “Loki” and “Hawk and the Winter Soldier”.
So what other characters do you think deserved more prominence on the MCU?
Recalling that the first reactions of the ‘Black Widow’ were already publicized and that the critics loved the adaptation.

“Black Widow looks like a Marvel Phase 1 movie because it’s the most independent story in a while. Without that Marvel movie nonsense like you’ve never seen. Florence Pugh STRIKE! “
BLACK WIDOW looks like a Phase 1 Marvel movie in Longest Standalone history in quite some time. All of this “An MCU entry like you’ve never seen it before!” trendy, yeah that’s not it. Florence Pugh reigns. (Also bonus points for a great MOONRAKER referral.)

“I really liked Black Widow! One of the funniest MCU movies, with a ton of self-referential jokes for longtime fans, enough self-awareness to make the nonsense work. Florence Pugh and David Harbor steal the show. He certainly has some issues. But dug! Absolutely to see in the rooms !! ”
