That last comment oh my god :D
I mean there is an imdb thing for black widow movie right? I think I saw that, so it probably is happening.
The thing about that is that it doesn’t even have a date yet. Like, they’ve given the 2017 date to Inhumans and Marvel’s announced that they’re already looking for a director for it so that they can do the same thing they did with GotG.
Meanwhile, they say that Nicole Perlman is working on a “treatment” for the flim, so testing ideas and things. So there isn’t even a working draft yet, which I really don’t blame her for because she probably is getting a ton of work after GotG, but still. Marvel isn’t one to keep secrets, they like to let their fans know what’s up too keep up the interest.
Knowing that, it is really suspicious that they are keeping this Black Widow film under wraps. Feige is so non-committal about the film, it’s very annoying and a little frightening. Because it’ll be easier for them to say oh we can’t do it, there were some problems with the script, or with Johanson’s schedule, or we couldn’t find a director for it and anyway that IMDB page wasn’t even official.
I mean, that’s pretty much what happened back in 2005/06 when Joss Whedon was supposed to do a WonderWoman movie for… 2009 or something. They put it up on IMDB just because well, it might happen, but the odds are against it. Then nobody official talks about it on any certain terms except for a “yeah wouldn’t that be cool” so it’s easier to pull the plug without ruffling too many fans feathers.
And just, I get that they’re afraid or whatever, but look at GotG, it was an excellent film AND they pushed it really hard. I mean, the advertising for that movie was crazy. Even if Black Widow does get a film, I highly doubt that they’ll do the same for her that they did for GotG.
There’s a great video Lindsay Ellis did back in 2012 about female superhero movies (x). Basically, there’s about…five or so big budget superhero comic heroine movies, and they all suck. The worst part about it, is they all fail in very different ways.
You could certainly argue there’s more than five bad male superhero movies. But it /is/ one of the reasons major studios keep waiting for the ‘perfect’ project to line up (which is impossible on so many levels). Even though at this point ANY Marvel movie is going to print money, producers and directors see the precedence set for female superhero movies and run off in the opposite direction.
