Scarlett Johansson stars as Marvel character Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow

According to Variety, the studio has tapped up-and-coming writer Jac Schaeffer to pen the script for Johansson's BLACK WIDOW film.

Since Scarlett Johansson first starred in 2010's Iron Man 2, fans have been clamoring for a Black Widow standalone movie, seemingly to no avail, despite Kevin Feige saying discussions were taking place. The report specifies that the film is in very early development and hasn't got the greenlight, but anyone who's been following the rumors on this project over the years will breathe a huge sigh of relief at seeing the studio finally take steps toward making the standalone film a reality.


It also claim that some of Marvel's execs have met up with Johansson to discuss what they would want from a writer for the movie.

Captain Marvel is on the way next year with Brie Larson in the lead role, but fans have oft wondered why Marvel just doesn't do a Black Widow solo movie. Marvel has yet to officially comment on the report, so it is unclear as to how accurate Variety's report is.


Scarlette Johansson has appeared as Black Widow in six films of the franchise and will be soon seen in the upcoming films "Avengers: Infinity War" and its second part.

Jac Schaeffer is an up and coming screenwriter who is known for her Black List script, "The Shower", a sci-fi/comedy about an alien invasion during a baby shower which caught the eye of Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway, who immediately sought out the project to star in it. Additionally, Schaeffer wrote, directed, and produced the 2009 movie TiMER as he theatrical debut. "She's a lead Avenger and has wonderful stories in her own right to tell that we think would be fun to turn into a standalone franchise". Not to mention just being an opportunity for a great Marvel character to kickass and explore a new angle on the Marvelverse.
