Robert Downey Jr. Talks 'Black Widow' & 'Hulk' Solo Films; Praises Jeremy Renner's 'Hawkeye'

USA Today recently caught with Iron Man himself Robert Downey Jr. to talk about Scarlett Johansson and her portrayal of Black Widow. When asked if she deserves to have her won Black Widow solo movie which has been rumored for some time especially after how well Lucy did in the theaters this past summer:
“Doesn’t Scarlett deserve a break? [He Jokes] 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 ass 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 then goes onto say how Marvel and Disney should try to give Mark Ruffalo a shot at a solo Hulk film and also praises Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye in The Avengers: Age of Ultron:
“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.”
