London, July 26 (ANI): Filmmaker Joss Whedon is not enthused about directing any more Marvel films, other than "Jessica Jones-y" female-led superhero film.

Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, the director stated that he would be up for making a film centred on the character of Black Widow, reports the Independent.

"Well, if somebody pointed at me and said, 'Do you want to make a Black Widow movie,' the answer would be 'duh' for two reasons," he began before explaining he would go down the spy movie route.

"[I'd like to] really do a good, paranoid sort of John le Carre on crack kind of thing. That would be really fun," continued the director.

His second reason was attributed to "delightful" Black Widow actor Scarlett Johansson.

"She works really hard, but she just spends most of her time cracking me up," he added. (ANI)
