Black Widow Taps Writer for Standalone Movie

Black Widow could be the next superhero to get a standalone movie. Marvel has reportedly hired a writer to pen the script for the film focusing on the heroine, who has been played by Scarlett Johannson in multiple “Avengers” movies.

According to multiple sources, Marvel President Kevin Feige already met several writers before picking Jac Schaeffer. The studio executives then had a meeting with Johansson to discuss what they expected the movie to be like.

Currently untitled, the Black Widow flick is still in very early development. It still hasn’t been green-lit, but with a writer already on board, the possibility of the film moving forward is very high.

Schaeffer is a relateively new writer. His most notable work includes the script for “The Shower”, which tells the story of an alien invasion duing a baby shower. The story impressed Anne Hathaway, who went on to sign herself up for the pic and tap Schaeffer for “Nasty Women”, a new version of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”, which she also stars.

Marvel has yet to comment on the reports of the Black Widow movie. There’s still no word either on when fans get to see it in theaters, but the heroine will once again appear on the big screen in “Avengers: Infinity War” that’s set to come out this summer.

    That’s great news. Been looking forward to a Black Widow movie ever since The Winter Soldier. Some people say that that Scarlett isn’t a good lead actress but she’s very likely gonna be accompanied by another Avenger or two as co-stars anyway. The character has potential for a great, more grounded story, and I think if they keep to more realistic stuff and less aliens/gods stuff, it could end up as a really good movie.

    Im sure any movie about Black Widow will have to include time wasting flahbacks to justify her purpose. She is the only marvel character on film (and Clint Barton) that has plenty of screen time yet just showed up one day already established.

    What little they showed of her origin in Age of Ultron was interesting IMO. It’s been a long time coming, but I do agree it may have happened too late.

    Not sure why everyone has such a hate-on for Black Widow all of a sudden. But a a solo movie for that character could be really cool. Perhaps a team-up movie with Hawkeye?

    I see the movie being a similar plot to Ant-Man. Maybe not a heist film, but an espionage film that is hopefully really tailored down on the whole CGI/massive budget action sequences. I’m thinking like a tone similar to Sicario or maybe a Bond movie.

    I believe little girls are ready for female superheroes, besides Wonder Woman. Scarlet Johansson should get a Black Widow movie. Include fighting techniques that haven’t been done before, cool weapons and super cool gadgets. Keep her smart and interesting. Avoid cheesiness and stunts that are done in most movies. Some beautiful clothes and costume upgrades will also help sell the action figure. A bit of a tease could be introducing a possible love interest for the future movies. Don’t make the movie so dark that teen girls can’t see it and make sure the writers do not dumb the movie. Audiences are keen these days
