Speaking with the New York Times, director of The Avengers Joss Whedon recalls the time when he was hired to write and direct the critical and commercial hit, and revealed that he initially tried to include Wasp as an Avenger before Black Widow was involved, but couldn’t make it work.
Whedon will be the first to admit it almost didn’t work. There was a version of the script, back when Johansson wasn’t involved, that featured a female superhero named the Wasp. Whedon had to scrap that script, and was making changes to his final version even as the effects people were starting work on the 40-minute battle that closes the movie. “Trying to figure out the way you want to introduce all those characters, that was stuff we were still tweaking in the edit,” says Whedon.
