Every Marvel fan wants to see a female-led superhero movie, even though Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige isn’t ready to make it happen, but the demand for the movie is at an all-time high since The Avengers.
In a recent interview with USA Today, Robert John Downey, Jr. was asked about Scarlett Johansson superhero movie, He replied: “Doesn’t Scarlett deserve a break?” [laughs, noting that she is about to become a first-time mom].
“Look, I think that the interesting thing particularly after Guardians with Zoe (Saldana), (or) even from the first Iron Man where Pepper was kind of this really – to me the Iron Man franchise would never have taken off without (Gwyneth) Paltrow.
There’s something about her that grounded the story. She’s not your typical lady in a superhero movie, and then by Iron Man 3 she’s swallowing serums and putting on suits and kicking (butt) and all that stuff.
It would be kind of more appropriate for a character that already was like a Black Widow (to lead a movie). It just seems like whatever Scarlett does people want to go see it, he added.
“The funny thing is honestly at this point everyone deserves a franchise. I think Jeremy Renner is — when folks see the Avengers: Age of Ultron he’s just a rockstar, a bada– And Ruffalo is pumped.
He does great (work). I’d like to hear them talk even more seriously about a Hulk franchise, because that’s been one of the toughest ones to get right. But I’m sure that my parent company is feeling expansive and and bold after the summer they’ve had,” Downey, Jr. concluded.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron is scheduled for release on April 24 in the UK & Ireland, May 1, 2015 in US.
