Captain America/Steve Rogers actor, Chris Evans, has recently revealed that he would not be surprised if Marvel releases a standalone movie for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow.

Evans, on his talk with Elle, praised Johnasson's portrayal of the former Soviet assassin turned S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Black Widow whose real name is Natasha Romanoff. He said that the 32-year-old actress is really good at everything she does.

"She's played such a crucial part in the other films. She always makes her presence so felt-even when there are 50 different superheroes running around onscreen," the 35-year-old actor said. "I wouldn't be surprised if that happens at some point in the future. I'm sure Scarlett would be open to it."

Marvel president, Kevin Feige, on his interview with Deadline last year, confirmed that Marvel is most committed to give Black Widow her very own standalone movie over other side characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, mainly War Machine, Falcon and Hawkeye.

The company has yet to release any official confirmation regarding the possibility of a "Black Widow" movie. So far, Marvel has been very busy with the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War" and its second part movie "Avengers 4."

Meanwhile, filming for "Ant-Man & The Wasp" isn't scheduled to begin until summer of 2017 and for "Captain Marvel" in early 2018. According to Screenrant, because of this planned movies down the line, Marvel wouldn't have any time to begin their production for the Black Widow standalone film.

Since the MCU phase 3 is about to end in "Avengers 4," fans seem to believe that the Black Widow movie - if it does happen - would most likely take a spot in Marvel's list of films for phase 4.

"Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers 4," which will star both Johansson and Evans as Black Widow and Captain America, are scheduled to premiere in cinemas on May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019, respectively.
