I'm looking forward to Black Widow's role in next summers' Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Even though this will be Scarlett Johansson's third film outing as the super spy, I have a feeling it will be the first time the character will really have a chance to shine. I liked her in Iron Man 2, but she didn't have much screen time. She was utilized much better in The Avengers, but was still overshadowed by so many heavy hitters. The next Captain America film promises to follow the excellent Ed Brubaker comics, with a more down to Earth feel than The Avengers had. I liked how the Black Widow was handled in those stories, so I am optimistic about the film adaptation.
