Marvel Studios Developing Black Widow Solo Film

Marvel Studios Developing Black Widow Solo Film

The creative has gone on to write the 2014 Black List film The shower starring Anne Hathaway, who was so pleased to have worked with Schaeffer that she later approached her to write Nasty Women, an upcoming female-focused remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels expected to star Hathaway and Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson. Now, Schaeffer has apparently joined the MCU.

With people clamoring to see a Black Widow solo movie one day hit theaters, Marvel Studios has continued to say publicly they were committed to making such a film.

We're here to report that nothing's really changed on that front, but we do, at least, have a Variety article quoting "sources" that reveals a writer for the yet to be greenlit film. They're looking four years ahead. It would have to be the best version that movie could possibly be.

Now, it seems the timing is finally right. Any doubt in a female-driven superhero being a success was shattered a year ago when Wonder Woman proved to be a critical and box office hit. The question now one has to ask is: what will a Black Widow standalone film look like? Also, Marvel Studios is well-known for their eye for new talent.

There's so much more to the character and a solo-film could explore a number of different possibilities. She's now working with Hathaway on Nasty Women, and has worked on other projects like TiMER and Olaf's Frozen Adventure (calm down, comments section). So, does this mean Black Widow survives the battle with Thanos in Infinity War?

Framed as "very early" with no official "greenlight" from studio, work on a Black Widow film reportedly began with studio president Kevin Feige interviewing writer candidates and consulting with Johansson, who has played in the role across six films since 2010 with two more, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, planned. It's great that we're in a place when a woman is writing a Black Widow script, truly.
