“Before I was an Avenger, I made mistakes … and a lot of enemies.”
To say that Scarlett Johansson’s solo Black Widow film is overdue is one of the understatements of the decade. Fans of the MCU have been calling for the character to have a film of her own; all the while characters like Captain America, Iron Man and Thor ended up well into their third films with the character playing key roles in the threads that pulled all of these films and characters together. Marvel often assured us it would eventually happen, but it sure appears to have taken too long. It didn’t help that the character dies in the final Avengers film, and it seemed less likely she would or even could get her own film by then.
