People express interest in directing particular projects all the time, but when a guy like Neil Marshall says he’d like to direct a Black Widow movie, you listen.

While discussing his work on Game of Thrones in a recent interview, the conversation shifted to the fact that Marshall didn’t get the chance to work with very many of the show’s leading ladies because his episodes primarily focus on male-dominated battles. From there, the idea of directing a female superhero movie popped up and Marshall went straight for Scarlett Johansson. Hit the jump to find out what he said about directing a Black Widow movie.
