Throughout her decades-long career, there's been one movie role that has truly stuck with actress Scarlett Johansson: Black Widow.

The Avengers hero, also known as Natasha Romanoff, has appeared in five Marvel films to date, truly allowing Johansson to "grow" with the character:

"It's difficult [to choose a favorite role]," the 31-year-old told Michigan Avenue Magazine. "I really like playing Natasha; playing the Black Widow [in The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War]. It's been an interesting journey, to take a character and grow it over these years, and peel the layers back and be able to, as you do in life, grow with this person. It's a character that's really enigmatic and has an amazing origins story, so there’s a lot for me to play off of."

Johansson went on to address the character's popularity, attributing it to the details:

"People like the puzzle pieces. It's part of the fun of the Marvel franchise," she explained. "They like to see these little pieces come together, and [discover] little references that they knew from the comics and stuff, so it's fun. I like that."

Back in May, Marvel president Kevin Feige said the studio was "committing" to making a stand-alone Black Widow film:

"We’ve announced the next nine movies, 10 counting Civil War, through the end of 2019," he told Deadline at the time. "Where we go beyond that are ongoing discussions that we’ll focus on in the next few years because we have a lot to do before then. Of the characters that you’ve just mentioned [Falcon, War Machine, Black Widow, Hawkeye] I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow."

Sure sounds like Johansson would be up for it.
