Marvel CONFIRMS Black Widow Solo Movie

Black Widow

In the movies, Black Widow can next be seen in Avengers: Infinity War (barring an as-yet-unannounced cameo in next month's Black Panther).

Marvel is apparently finally heeding its fans' calls for a stand-alone Black Widow movie: The studio has taken a promising step by reportedly hiring a writer for the project.

Jac Schaeffer is set to write the script centered on the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most popular female character. The Disney short "Olaf's Frozen Adventure" is another brainchild of Schaeffer.

First debuting in 2010's "Iron Man 2", Black Widow has appeared in five MCU films so far with Scarlett Johansson playing the role and she is slated to return later this year in "Avengers: Infinity War" and its fourth untitled installment in 2019. According to Variety, Marvel has hired scriptwriter Jac Schaeffer to write the movie. Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several candidates before tapping Schaeffer, and Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a Black Widow writer. She is now developing "Nasty Women", a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels starring Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, and Alex Sharp.


Six more have specific release dates - beginning with February's Black Panther - while the furthest planned film so far is Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 sometime in 2020.

Rumors of a Black Widow movie could not come at a better time for Sideshow Collectibles, who recently announced an upcoming premium format figure based on the character.

Again, this is hardly something that's going to stop the presses, but it is nice to know that firstly, the gears are in motion and secondly, that Scarlett Johansson looks to be involved in the creative process.

"The character is right for a stand-alone", she told Total Film magazine (via GamesRadar+) in February 2017, "it's just a case of timing at this point for both Marvel and myself".
