I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, even more so since I’ve been delving into her comics, and it’s something I’ve decided is absolutely necessary. I’m not saying that I want a Black Widow movie over any other Marvel character. I think that there is a definite need for a female driven super movie (be it Marvel or DC) but Natasha already has the base for a movie. We’re supposedly getting more back story in Age of Ultron (and Cap 2?) and in The Winter Soldier we’re supposedly going to see Natasha as more of a person than an agent. These are the perfect stepping stones to give her her own movie that can be just as amazing as any other film Marvel has released.
We’ve been teased about it during all this Winter Soldier press but I’m tired of Marvel drumming up the idea of a Black Widow movie and then them turning around and saying something different. Scarlett seems to be on board which is great and she’s said that if people want to see it, she’ll do it. I think we need to show her and Marvel that there is a market for this. I know people have suggested showing support by buying her comics/merchandise, which I completely agree with, but there isn’t enough merch to really do much. I’ve scoured stores for Black Widow toys or ANYTHING Natasha and I’ve come up with barely anything. She has no action figure in Target. She has no individual merchandise (save for the wash cloth I found at Dollar Tree). How can we show our support when most everything she’s featured on includes all the other Avengers?
TLDR: So I’m calling for a Black Widow movie initiative. I want fans to post videos expressing their love for Black Widow and their want for a movie. I want to get a Twitter hashtag trending worldwide. I want to do anything and everything in our power to let Marvel know we’re serious about this.
Who is with me?
