Black Widow Motivational Poster 3 by slyboyseth Black Widow Motivational Poster 3 by slyboyseth
...No seriously, when does she get her own movie? Thor, Hulk, Cap, and Iron Man have their own movies, why not Black Widow?

Black Widow is owned by Marvel. Please support the official release.

You're right, especially now that the Avengers are temporarily disbanded.

Answer is simple she not popular enough, people only know her from the movies. Marvel studios rules on what gets a movie. What would the movie be about as Cap films already are basically spy movies. Scarlet Johansson not having the best history with blockbusters.

The reason why she never got her own movie is because of Ike Perlmutter. This is the guy who's been the CEO of Marvel Entertainment since 2005. He's always been against a Black Widow movie because he's a greedy a-hole who thinks that superhero movies where the main character is a woman are doomed to fail at the box-office. While it's true that movies like Supergirl, Elektra, Catwoman, etc. all failed at the box-office, it wasn't because they had a woman as the lead character, but simply because these movies SUCKED due to poor writing, directing, and acting. Kevin Feige had to agree to produce an Inhumans movie (simply because Perlmutter wants to turn the Inhumans into the MCU's equivalent of the X-Men, as he's pissed off that he can't make money out of the X-Men movies due to the fact their movie rights are currently owned by Fox) in order to make the Captain Marvel movie possible. However, due to Avengers: Age of Ultron making slightly less money than the first Avengers movie, Disney was a bit disappointed by those results, and Feige used this opportunity to convince Disney to let him be entirely in charge of Marvel Studios, instead of Perlmutter. This happened after Phase 3 was already planned out, but seeing how Feige and Scarlett Johansson wants to see a Black Widow being made, it's very likely that we'll get this movie at some point during Phase 4.

For any other comic book-related question, NEVER hesitate to ask me about it.

No the reason why she not getting a movie is the simple fact what would her purpose be. Each hero's film serves a certain purpose, Captain America is all about political issue and government control.

Plus the people in charge at the MCU wouldn't know what it would be about. Plus even as a character she not a stronger enough reason. Her loyalty is constantly shifting to who has the strongest power she joined the US for that reason.

There also the fact Black Widow no one knows who the hell she was before avengers film.

If someone was able to make a movie about a group featuring a raccoon with a machine gun and a talking tree whose only dialogue is simply stating what his name is, while someone else was able to make an Iron Man 1-inspired movie about a guy that shrinks to the size of an ant, I don't see how impossible it would be to give to Black Widow her own friggin' movie.

"There also the fact Black Widow no one knows who the hell she was before avengers film."

...That's the stupidest reason I've ever read. No one knew who Iron Man was before he got his own movie. Or the Guardians. Or Ant-Man. Or Doctor Strange...

People did know who IronMan he just as popular or iconic lol or Captain America or Spiderman. Guardians that was the point it was a team of nobodies which was why they were given to a guy known for making Trama films. Doctor Strange is deals with magic in the MCU and was given the film because the MCU is already a hit and each movie going to be a blockbuster. Ant-man is important Marvel history remember he founded the avengers.

Look at the Dr. Strange deals with magic concepts in the MCU, Guardians deal cosmic stuff. Black Widow is normal person who's a spy what would they do with her?

"People did know who IronMan he just as popular or iconic lol or Captain America or Spiderman."

As popular and iconic as Cap or Spidey? Oh, please! He wasn't THAT well-known before 2008. Even Don Cheadle thought Iron Man was a robot before the first movie came out. He wasn't a character that well-known among mainstream audiences. The only reason why I've even heard of him before that movie came out is because of the Spider-Man cartoon from the 90's, where he appeared as a guest-star for only a few episodes. That and the "Ultimate Avengers" direct-to-video movies. And even then, not everyone in the world saw those episodes and movies before he got his own movie.

"Guardians that was the point it was a team of nobodies which was why they were given to a guy known for making Trama films."

Nooope. The reason why they got their own movie was because Nicole Perlman (the original screenwriter) was offered by Marvel the chance of writing the script for any Marvel character and the Guardians managed to strike a chord with her due to 
her interest in space and science fiction. And James Gunn was hired to direct it because he is, in the words of Joss Whedon, "such a craftsman and he builds from his heart". Marvel wouldn't have given one of their most important projects to some guy from Trauma UNLESS they felt he had the talent necessary to make it work. And he did.

"Doctor Strange is deals with magic in the MCU and was given the film because the MCU is already a hit and each movie going to be a blockbuster."

They could have given a movie to Doctor Strange during Phase 1 if they wanted to, but they decided not to in order to focus on setting up the founding 
roster for the Avengers before their 2012 movie.

"Ant-man is important Marvel history remember he founded the avengers."

I know that, but that's pretty much irrelevant to the MCU, given that he wasn't a founding member in THAT setting, nor did he managed to create Ultron like in the original source material.

"Look at the Dr. Strange deals with magic concepts in the MCU, Guardians deal cosmic stuff. Black Widow is normal person who's a spy what would they do with her?"

A normal person? I get that she doesn't have super-powers, but that doesn't change the fact that she's an incredibly skilled fighter who can kick ass as easily as eating breakfast. If James Bond can get more than TWENTY movies, I don't see why there would be no room for her when the Cap movies already include elements of spy thrillers. Especially given that we won't get a new Cap movie for a LONG time.

Cheadle also thinks the shows are their own separate universe too. That Guardian point was exactly why it happened the way it did they choose people that even hardcore fan don't know too much about because of the creative team behind it. If the MCU wasn't already proven to be a success no normal studio would have let them have make because of their history, despite them being very creative people.

Ant-man history is important to Marvel that's why they felt the spot for a film. Plus the version they chosen gave them an opportunity for crime film because of Scott Lang's history.   

I'm not saying it's impossible for her to get a movie it's just why she doesn't have one planned because Cap's situation in the MCU. Who knows she might take over his spot if Chris Evans doesn't get renewed. It's just reasons why she doesn't have one yet.

"Cheadle also thinks the shows are their own separate universe too."

Given how little interactions there are between the movies and the shows, that's not surprising for anyone to assume that.

"That Guardian point was exactly why it happened the way it did they choose people that even hardcore fan don't know too much about because of the creative team behind it. If the MCU wasn't already proven to be a success no normal studio would have let them have make because of their history, despite them being very creative people."

So... The Guardians got their own movie because even hardcore fans didn't know too much about them... And yet the fact Black Widow (a character known by hardcore fans) wasn't well-known before the Avengers movie is SUPPOSED to be an argument about why she doesn't have her own movie yet. You're not making any sense here.

"I'm not saying it's impossible for her to get a movie it's just why she doesn't have one planned because Cap's situation in the MCU. Who knows she might take over his spot if Chris Evans doesn't get renewed. It's just reasons why she doesn't have one yet."

Except your overall attitude since you felt the need to reply to me about this whole thing felt more like "Why she'll NEVER get her own movie" and less like "Why she hasn't gotten her own movie YET". BIG difference.

The reason why they interact barely because it could lead to union issues.

The Guardians waste a test on how strong Marvel's name was. Awesome Trailers summed it up perfectly where it was the name that got people to see without knowing anything about the characters.

I'm pretty sure we'll get one eventually after Infinity War, since Jim and Juan got one.

And if you're confused, I'm making a reference to Nightwing (and his butt) since he's getting his own movie with Chris McKay attached to direct.

Marvel already made clear, that her stories ties with Cap, Iron man and the Avengers Movies. So, we won't get any Black Widow movie so far.
