Screenwriter/actor David Hayter (Metal Gear Solid, Watchmen, X2) has already finished his script for the Black Widow film. He revealed that he doesn’t know if Marvel is going to move forward with it, but a lot of people are craving for the movie starring the deadly spy. Now you can add Iron Man’s Robert Downey Jr. to the names of people who want to see a Black Widow film.

“Doesn’t Scarlett deserve a break?” asked Downey. “Look, I think that the interesting thing particularly after [Guardians of the Galaxy] with Zoe [Saldana], even from the first Iron Man where Pepper was kind of this really – to me the Iron Man franchise would never have taken off without [Gwyneth] Paltrow. There’s something about her that grounded the story. She’s not your typical lady in a superhero movie, and then by Iron Man 3 she’s swallowing serums and putting on suits and kicking [butt] and all that stuff. It would be kind of more appropriate for a character that already was like a Black Widow [to lead a movie]. It just seems like whatever Scarlett does people want to go see it.”

He adds that all the other Avengers deserve their own movies as well:

“The funny thing is honestly at this point everyone deserves a franchise. I think Jeremy Renner is — when folks see the Avengers: Age of Ultron he’s just a rockstar, a badass. And Ruffalo is pumped. He does great (work). I’d like to hear them talk even more seriously about a Hulk franchise, because that’s been one of the toughest ones to get right. But I’m sure that my parent company is feeling expansive and and bold after the summer they’ve had.”

Are you looking forward to a Black Widow movie? What other female heroes would you like to see on the big screen?
