Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Heroes Who Deserve Movies Edition

by

One of the more interesting side-effects of the casting of Wonder Woman for the ‘Man Of Steel’ sequel is the repeated internet argument that, “At least she’ll get her own movie, Black Widow never will.”  While it’s obvious how this speculation came to be, it’s a train of thought that I don’t entirely follow.  Based on her scenes in the Avengers flick, the character has unexplored potential, and Scarlett Johansson is what movie types call a “bankable” actress.  In the right movie, one which played up her acrobatics and spy-type exploits, let her be the awesome strategist and kick the proverbial butt, and I think a ‘Black Widow’ movie could be wildly successful, especially in concert with Marvel’s other properties.  This also raises another line of inquiry…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks that you could also make one hell of a movie out of Machine Man, but if you did, people would accuse you of ripping of ‘Robocop’, asking: What hero (however unlikely) would you most like to see in his or her own solo film adventure?
