It won't happen because it won't sell, and they know it. Because if actions movies with female leads sold, why hasn't Salt? Red Sparrow? These films MAY have made money, but not enough to justify a franchise.

Quod erat demonstrandum.
Exceptions do not make the rule.

Maybe the Black Widow movie will rock, I hope so! But it holds true, it's not going to do as hotly as the rest of the Marvel Movies of late.

Well, they aren’t making a Black Widow movie, so...

Which is a shame because Natasha rocks. They’d actually better off with less Widow and more Romanova. Her character made a great contrast to Rogers in Civil War and with her as the lead Clint of the MCU would be a great option with Chris no longer playing the Captain.

Yes stereotypically women leads are a tough sell, but just unlike Wonder Woman which I’d begged years for. Widow has a prebuilt in audience (which helped carry Antman and GotG initial movies). An audience which has clamored for a solo shot since her initial debut. If there is a stopper here it’s in the initial contract not paying enough for her to bother playing a leading role. IMO

You can officially consider it no longer a rumour. I'm a 'people' and I want my all-female Avengers film. But first, I want a Black Widow film. To be honest, I don't really care about Infinity War 2 (or whatever it ends up being called). If I was given the option of 'Get the second half of the Infinity War saga but the Black Widow solo movie is delayed' or 'Get the Black Widow solo movie now, but we'll never make the second half of Infinity War, simply skipping to after it has all been resolved', then I would be all for junking the second Infinity War film right now.

I would be very happy with a movie showing what happened in Budapest :P
