Taika Waititi has been on the lips of many with praise. Primarily from the stars, cast and executives at Marvel Studios for his work directing Thor: Ragnarok.
If the film is successful (which it probably will be), he can pretty much write his own ticket as far as the Marvel Cinematic Universe is concerned.
While Waititi was making the press runs to promote the 3rd Thor solo film, he gave his insight into which character he’s possibly want to direct a film on next..
“In all honesty, I reckon I could probably bring something pretty unique to any of the franchises. I’d love to see Black Widow…as something crazy and a bit funnier than we expect it to be,” he said. “Because we know her story and it’s very sullen and very dark and her history is very dark. But! What’s the funny version of that? What’s the more entertaining version of that?”
There has been a call somewhat to give the Spy turned Superhero her own film. We finally learned some of Natasha Romanoff’s back story in the 2nd Avengers film Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Waititi goes a little more in depth as to why in particular this Avenger is who he may be eyeing.
“I really go for the underdog. I think there’s a way in with any of the characters,” he said. “You just have to find it and find what honors what’s already there with the source material but also brings it into a more entertaining form for the audience.”
Scarlett Johansson will next be seen as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in Avengers: Infinity War May 4, 2018.
Thor:Ragnarok is out in theaters November 3rd 2017. Let us know do you want a solo black widow film.
