'Game of Thrones' Director Neil Marshall Wants To Helm a 'Black Widow' Solo Movie

Neil Marshall is one of the few television directors to dip his feet in some of the biggest shows on TV. He is most commonly known for directing episodes of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones as well as Starz Black Sails. Most recently he directed the pilot for the comic book show Constantine for NBC. Well, while speaking with Vanity Fair the director reveals he would love to do a comic book movie just not one based on a superhero with super powers:
"I think I’d like to do a big movie with a strong female lead, whether or not she would be a superhero. I’m more interested in characters like Scarlett Johansson in Lucy. I’m less interested in people with superpowers because I can’t identify with them. Very rarely do they get killed off, and when they do get killed off, chances are they’re going to be back . . . somehow."
They go onto ask him about this long rumored solo Black Widow movie that does have a script in development at Marvel:
"Yes, I’d love to do a big splashy movie with a great female lead, but it has to be someone I can believe in. I would love to do a Black Widow movie. That’s perfect, I would love to do that. That character is really interesting, she doesn’t have any superpowers, she just has extraordinary skills, and the world that she comes from, being this ex-K.G.B. assassin, I find that really fascinating, yeah."
 Now many fans will agree a Black Widow movie is fairly low on the totem pole when it comes to Marvel movies. With the likes of Black Panther and Ms. Marvel the top of fans wish list it's unlikely a Black Widow (possibly teaming up with Hawkeye) would do very well. But no one ever said a Netflix show is impossible right?!
