Marvel Is Finally Going To Work On A Black Widow Solo Movie

Black Widow Movie Scarlett Johansson

According to the outlet, they may be pushing forward with the idea of a Black Widow standalone film, and that they have hired a writer to pen the script. Featuring the story of an alien invasion happening during a baby shower, the script got the attention of Anne Hathaway who has attached herself to star in the movie. Academy Award-winner Hathaway has also worked with Schaeffer on forthcoming release Nasty Women, a revamped female-driven take on Steve Martin and Michael Caine's 1988 comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Black Widow fans have been showing outcry and support for a standalone film ever since Johansson appeared as the character in 2010's "Iron Man 2".

Johansson has appeared as the character in six films, the next one being this summer's "Avengers: Infinity War".

Forget the Avengers for now: Black Widow might finally be getting her own movie, and there's no assembling required. The Charlize Theron film resonated with audiences and although her character, Lorraine Broughton, is different from Romanoff's, "there definitely is a similar sort of energy in terms of how they could be told onscreen". And it's very possible that what she turns in either doesn't work, or gets rewritten by someone else. Fans have little to no knowledge of what most of those movies will be and that's by design. I've been living this story with these people for 10 years through ups and downs. Schaeffer's was apparently the best, or the one that Feige liked the most. She rose to popularity after she showcased her unique talents as an agent on "Avengers" and other subsequent films that focus on the heroic team.

At long last, the company may have selected the right screenwriter for the job. If this comes to fruition, Widow's movie would take place in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which is basically a huge question mark at this point. However, despite Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige teasing a Black Widow movie for many years, it wasn't until 2018 that there was finally some momentum behind the project.
