With Avengers: Age of Ultron currently playing in theaters worldwide, one of the ensemble's stars, Scarlett Johansson, hosted Saturday Night Live last night. The show aired a parody trailer that pokes a bit of fun at Avengers: Age of Ultron, showing what a solo Black Widow movie could look like with the trailer Black Widow: Age of Me. The trailer shows Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) as she juggles an internship at Fashion Weekly magazine and a complicated relationship with boyfriend Ultron.
The parody also features a number of other Marvel heroes such as Captain America (Beck Bennett), Thor (Taran Killam), Nick Fury (Jay Pharoah) and Hulk (Bobby Moynihan). Of course, this parody exists in the first place because Black Widow is one of the few Avengers who doesn't have her own stand alone movie, along with Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and the new Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). The Incredible Hulk was a part of Phase One, but that movie starred Edward Norton, who was replaced by Mark Ruffalo for Marvel's The Avengers.
If there ever is a stand alone Black Widow movie starring Scarlett Johansson, it wouldn't look like this, but it's still an entertaining trailer nonetheless. Do you think Black Widow deserves her own movie after appearing in Iron Man 2, Marvel's The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron? Chime in with your thoughts below, and stay tuned for more on a potential Black Widow solo movie.
