Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige let some interesting information out while discussing the Blu-Ray release of Iron Man 2. He says that the studio has been talking with Scarlett Johansson about a possible Black Widow film.
“We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts, but ‘The Avengers’ comes first.”
This is a fun notation because it looks like Marvel Studios is beginning to look beyond The Avengers, focus on characters like Black Widow, who was a bit of an ass-kicking mystery in Iron Man 2. The fact that they are looking to keep Johansson seems to be because they would like to keep the continuity of The Avengers film universe together. Thoughts?
Joss Whedon was a keynote speaker at the 2010 Melbourne Writers’ Festival in Australia. There was a portion where Whedon was addressed rewriting the script for The Avengers.
On the script he was presented with not being his own script:
It is now. Yeah. There was a script, but I had a different take on it. And when they showed it to me I said “But this doesn’t work for me, I would do something different.” And they said, “Well tell us what you would do,” and now I’m doing it.
Kenneth Branagh had a chat with The LA Times and gives some insight to how he approached directing Thor, compared to Jon Favreau’s Iron Man.On the difference of both films:
“It’s a different story, and also, in that regard, Jon is a bit of a genius when it comes to that orchestration and getting the max out of another genius in Downey.”
