'Game of Thrones' Helmer Neil Marshall Volunteers to Direct 'Black Widow' Movie


In a recent interview, Marshall said he would love to direct a movie with a strong female central character.

Marvel Studios may not have to look far to find a director for a "Black Widow" movie. "Game of Thrones" and "Centurion" director Neil Marshall has revealed his passion in helming a movie about a strong female lead, naming the superhero as one of them.

"I think I'd like to do a big movie with a strong female lead, whether or not she would be a superhero," Marshall told Vanity Fair in a recent interview. "I'm more interested in characters like Scarlett Johansson in 'Lucy'. I'm less interested in people with superpowers because I can't identify with them. Very rarely do they get killed off, and when they do get killed off, chances are they're going to be back ... somehow."

When given the name Black Widow by the interviewer, Marshall quickly showed interest. "I would love to do a Black Widow movie," he said. "That's perfect, I would love to do that. That character is really interesting, she doesn't have any superpowers, she just has extraordinary skills, and the world that she comes from, being this ex-K.G.B. assassin, I find that really fascinating, yeah."

Whether or not Marvel Studios will eventually make a stand-alone Black Widow movie remains a mystery. The studio's head Kevin Feige previously said that the project was "in development" but has not been heard of since. "We only do two a year, we know more or less what's coming up through '16/'17," he said back in March. "With Widow what's great is the interaction with all the team members, and the question is whether we want to pluck her out of that."
