Trivia / Black Widow

  • Development Hell: Where her movie has been languishing for years. David Hayter (better known as SNAAAAKE!) has been trying to get it made for ages with no luck.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Emily Blunt had originally signed on to play Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but had to drop out during preproduction of Iron Man 2 and was replaced by Scarlett Johansson.
    • Natalie Portman was considering the role as well, but couldn't do it because of scheduling conflicts.
    • Angie Bowie tried to create a TV show about both Black Widow and Daredevil back in the '70s, intending to play Widow herself after losing the role of Wonder Woman to Lynda Carter.
    • Black Widow was almost excluded from The Avengers over salary issues with Scarlett Johansson, which would have resulted in The Wasp taking her place on the team.
    • Blind Al from Deadpool was originally going to be revealed as the first Black Widow from back during World War 2.
