Black Widow Movie!


I heart Jeremy Renner, I'll admit it, and I think Scarlett Johannson is a stone fox.


BTW, don't try looking up "stone fox" on Google.  ~shudder~

ANYway, apparently Ms. Johannson is going to have a baby, which I'm sure will be too cool for school and WAY to foxy for his or her own good.  BUT, the OTHER good news is that BLACK WIDOW IS GETTING HER OWN MOVIE!

According to MovieWeb, there's a strong possibility that we will get to see Scarlett reprise her role in her very own movie.  She will be playing a pivotal role in the next Avengers movie, (which shouldn't be a surprise to Avengers fans since she's, like, the Black Widow, man!), as well as the soon-to-be-released Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  I'm so excited about this franchise that I can't sit still.

I do, of course, wish Ms. Johannson well and congratulate her on her expanding family, but am even more excited about the possibility of having a complex female lead in a historically male-dominated genre of action/adventure/hero movies.  I'm not surprised, what with filmmaker, writer and director Joss Whedon involved, but I'm tickled that the Powers That Be are listening to Whedon and taking the franchise in some interesting directions.

What about you?  If you could make any movie you wanted, who would be the hero and who would you have play the hero?  (Using 'hero' in a gender-neutral sense, here, so please, don't forget the womens!)
