Total Film was busy with Marvel Studios news Thursday, with the release of their new Captain America: The Winter Soldier covered issue. On the web, they teased an interview with Elizabeth Olsen, who will star as Wanda Maximoff in Avengers: Age of Ultron, where she teased the costume she'll wear as her superhero identity, The Scarlet Witch.
"It respects and involves the comic-book character, but it's different, more rooted," she told the magazine. "It's for someone today." She did also note one particular part of the costume that you'll see, though. "My favorite piece is the secrecy cloak. There's a hood and a robe – it protects the image!"
Meanwhile, in the magazine itself, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige talked with the magazine. He reiterated that Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow has a large role to play in Winter Soldier, but that she'll also be a focus player in Age of Ultron… and possibly beyond that.
"We learn more about her past and learn more about where she came from and how she became in that film," Feige said. "The notion of exploring that even further in her own film would be great, and we have some development work with that."
So there is some level of development on a solo female film from Marvel Studios, though fans should temper their excitement. There have been similar comments on feature films around Dr. Strange, Black Panther, and even the Inhumans in the past from Feige, and none of those films have had any more concrete information since. At least Marvel Studios is talking about it, though.
