Speaking to the Playlist, Marvel Films co-chief Kevin Feige, hinted that standalone movies for slinky superspy Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2, and expert marksman Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner in the recent Thor, in the future.
“There’s no definitive plans, but we have started talking and talking with Scarlett about what a Widow movie could be”, he said. “Internally we’ve also started thinking what a Hawkeye movie could be, how we could continue to explore the organization SHIELD, which has a pretty big part in Thor, smaller parts in the two Iron Man films and has a giant part in The Avengers. [So it’s like], what would a stand-alone SHIELD be like? It all goes back to the comics. Sometimes the answer is—when looking at a certain run of issues— ‘no way’ and sometimes the answer is ‘maybe, let’s continue to explore it’ and certainly with Hawkeye and Black Widow those are two that we’re exploring.”
