Movie News: A Standalone Black Widow Movie Is In The Works

Marvel is an unstoppable force at the present moment. Despite there being more superhero movies than you can shake a stick at, people just seem to not get sick of them. Because of this, the studio has been pumping out movies with reckless abandon and are tapping into their individual superheroes to make standalone films. One of the most requested movies from the general fanbase involves Black Widow, the black-clad lady assassin with the mysterious past. While she does appear in the Avenger films portrayed by Scarlett Johansson, the attention was obviously not placed on her story.

Marvel seems to now be going ahead with the standalone film, but development is really early as it hasn’t yet received the official greenlight, but early production is already in progress. The film will obviously star Johansson in the leading role and it was just revealed that female writer Jac Schaeffer has been tapped for writing the script. Schaeffer is a relatively new writer in the business, but her work has already garnered her a lot of attention and caught the eye of Marvel President, Kevin Feige.

While this isn’t a definitive confirmation, it might as well be considering that Black Widow is one of the superheroes who most deserves her own movie. It’s wonderful that it will potentially be another female-fronted superhero film in lieu of Wonder Woman and it’s a pretty compelling argument for why you need to pay attention to this movie. The actual release is obviously impossible to gauge and we’ll probably only see the film well into the future, but the news that it’s coming should be enough to get us excited for now.
