Black Widow is Going to Get Her Own Marvel Movie… Probably

Now, it's important to note that the potential Black Widow film is very early in its development and hasn't even been greenlit as of yet. The studio execs have also met with Johansson to talk about what they wanted from a "Black Widow" writer. She's also written Black List script The Shower, which tells of an alien invasion that goes down during a baby shower.

Which is why it's such big news that the company seems to be moving closer to making the Black Widow movie a reality.

The Black Widow film will be Marvel's second female-led superhero flick, following Brie Larson-starrer Captain Marvel, which is slated for release in 2019. Jac Schaeffer will provide the script for a solo film about the Russian spy-turned-Avenger, played by Scarlett Johansson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Feige and Johansson have spent the years since Black Widow's Iron Man 2 debut insisting the film was always a possibility, but this is the first time the studio has moved forward on the project visibly.

For the record, the "Frozen" short is actually solid, it's just not particularly welcome at the beginning of a completely different film.

Speaking recently on the set of the fourth "Avengers" film, she said: "It's bittersweet to imagine not having these films to come back to".

This is great news all around, and a step toward the representation Marvel fans have been craving for years. It's a shame really, as Captain America: Winter Soldier was a smaller scale (well, compared to most of the MCU) story and is held up by fans as one of the best entries into the universe. Let's hope that by then, more details about the standalone Black Widow movie are made available.

Hathaway loved working with Schaeffer so much she brought the writer on board to pen "Nasty Women", a female take on the the 1988 comedy "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", which started Michael Caine and Steve Martin. From there, her character became a part of the Avengers crew, showing up in four other films from the franchise, as well as in an uncredited role in 2017's Thor: Ragnarok.
