Black Widow Ranks First in NEW Fandango Poll For Next Avengers Solo Film
The poll included several of the top Avengers who seem to get plenty of screen time, yet lack a solo franchise like, Iron Man, Captain America, or Thor.
Black Widow (played by the lovely Scarlett Johansson) made her debut in Iron Man 2, and has appeared in several of the other Avengers solo and team films. Her most prominent role was probably in Captain America: The Winter Soldier , in which many ( including myself ) believed she stole the show.
The Poll done for USA Today by Fandango, was of Scarlet Witch ( Elizabeth Olsen ), War Machine ( Don Cheadle ) , Hawkeye ( Jeremy Renner ) , the Vision ( Paul Bettany ) and Falcon ( Anthony Mackie ).
Black Widow destroyed the competition as she grossed a full 48% of the vote ( wow this sounds like Donald Trump against the other GOP ), with The Vision coming in second at 15%, Falcon at 12% , Hawkeye at 10%, War Machine at 8% and Scarlet Witch at 7%.
While it is no surprise Black Widow smashed the likes of The Vision , Falcon, and Scarlet Witch, it is a lot more surprising Hawkeye faced so low on the rankings ( as he has had close to the same amount of screen time as Black Widow ).
On a personal note, I think Black Widow should have gotten her own standalone movie after her performance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but knowing how Marvel has debuted their solo films it would be no surprise that a Black Widow movie would be put on such a indefinite hold.
Perhaps we should sign a petition for a Black Widow standalone film ?
