Marvel Cinematic Universe: Black Widow to get standalone film

Black Widow Movie Scarlett Johansson

Marvel's Potential BLACK WIDOW Film Finds A Writer

The arrival of Wonder Woman on the big screen was at least 30 years overdue, but the fact that we've had Scarlett Johansson kicking ass as Black Widow for almost a decade (in six films across three different franchises) on screen with no solo movie to call her own has always seemed a little weird. While the movie is unconfirmed and unannounced, Variety reports that Marvel has found a writer for it: Jac Schaeffer. The magazine describes the film as in "very early development" with no green light as of yet, but also mentions that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige was personally involved in the process of finding a writer, which is a good sign the studio is taking this seriously. Next month will be Marvel's first standalone film with an African American lead as Chadwick Boseman stars as Black Panther.

Ever since Scarlett Johansson made her debut in Marvel's Iron Man movie as the character Black Widow, there have murmurs about her character possibly getting her own standalone movie. But no harm in feeling happy for Black Widow fandom.

Schaeffer stepped into the feature film industry with her 2009 pic TiMER, which she wrote and directed. But in a different turn of events, another female superhero movie - Captain Marvel (2019) - got the green light.

Jac Schaeffer is an up and coming screenwriter who is known for her Black List script, "The Shower", a sci-fi/comedy about an alien invasion during a baby shower which caught the eye of Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway, who immediately sought out the project to star in it.

Scarlette Johansson has appeared as Black Widow in six films of the franchise and will be soon seen in the upcoming films "Avengers: Infinity War" and its second part.
