Marvel Finally Gaining Momentum With Black Widow Movie? Writer On Board


Fans have been steadily pushing for a Black Widow movie since the character's MCU debut in 2010's Iron Man 2, bothbecause of the character's nearly unique place in the franchise as its most prominent female superhero and Scarlett Johansson's star power. Hathaway has since hired Schaeffer to pen the screenplay for Nasty Women, an upcoming comedy that will also star Hathaway.

The assassin-turned S.H.I.E.L.D. operative, played by Scarlet Johansson, has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since her first appearance in Iron Man 2, all the way back in the long forgotten era of 2010.

While Marvel has yet to comment on the most recent development, Variety reports that Jac Schaeffer is penning a script. Kevin Feige later said that Black Widow was one of the characters that Marvel Studios is "creatively and emotionally" committed to giving solo movie attention to in Phase Four. Although the "Black Widow" standalone film has yet to receive an official title, fans of the character have expressed their eager anticipation for the film. Why does Captain Marvel get her standalone film released way before Black Widow, who has been with us for years?


Marvel Studios simply kept sidelining Black Widow to supporting roles that ranged from empathetic superspy at best (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) to appallingly embarrassing love interest at worst (Avengers: Age of Ultron). Don't expect a Black Widow movie before 2020. It's taken the actor to appear in six subsequent releases for the studio to finally move forward with the project. Many individuals have carried that moniker, including Claire Voyant - one of the earliest costumed, super-powered women to appear in comics.

But it seems Scar-Jo's deal must be different to the other contracts that are more firmly ending at the end of Avengers 4, as The Wrap report has her in position to star once more as the ass-kicking Russian defector.

Shaeffer wrote Olaf's Frozen Adventure, a 22-minute film spinning out of Frozen; the short ran before Pixar's Coco in its opening weeks. But at least we're going to get to see her in her own movie.
