Scarlett Johansson Black Widow Movie Is Closer To Happening, Finds A Writer

Variety now reports that a Black Widow movie is now in "very early development" at Marvel Studios, and there has been no formal greenlight for the project. And while Marvel wouldn't comment to Variety (or us) to confirm if that's true - if it is, it would mark the first actual movement on a film fans have been wanting for years.

While we have to wait until 2019 to see Brie Larson suit up for Captain Marvel, the future looks even brighter with Marvel now working on a Black Widow movie too. The site notes that Marvel president Kevin Feige met with several possible candidates and Marvel executives spoke with Scarlett Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a writer before Schaeffer was selected. But no harm in feeling happy for Black Widow fandom. She is perhaps best known so far for the 2009 movie TiMER, a sci-fi comedy that she wrote, directed and produced. Johansson is a movie start to boot, Black Widow has proven one of their most versatile and enduring characters, and the possibility of a standalone film just begs Marvel Studios to put their signature stamp on the spy genre. "She's a lead Avenger and has unbelievable stories in her own right to tell that we think would be fun to turn into a stand-alone franchise". Given the character's rise in popularity with mainstream audiences since debuting in Iron Man 2 it wouldn't be completely surprising to learn that a Black Widow film is on the agenda.
