Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters in only a few weeks, which promises to be the biggest collision of superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. While some fans may be focused on the upcoming adventure, some of the series' stars are already focusing on the future, wondering what heroes could potentially get their own solo outing.

"Yeah, there is. It's so much ... I think that [there is] a scene between Black Widow and the Winter Soldier," Stan said of the characters' interactions in the film. "There are other pressing issues to deal with. But it's nice to have that there. It's a great opportunity that one day we might explore. It depends on how they feel."
As for whether Stan is ready to explore that relationship with Black Widow, the actor confessed, "Yeah, absolutely! Of course! I mean, anytime I'm ready."
Johansson herself has also expressed interest in starring in a solo Black Widow movie, but the film is currently nothing more than a concept that has yet to be confirmed.
