“Black Widow” Film Enlists Screenwriter Jac Schaeffer

There's more great news because The Wrap reports that Jac Schaeffer is set to write a script for a Black Widow standalone movie.

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. A Black Widow film could one of the least weird things she's written.

It looks like our Black Widow-related dreams are finally coming true. But Variety says Feige met with several writers before choosing Schaeffer, who was on the prestigious Black List for her comedy The Shower, which has Anne Hathaway attached. Johansson has been portraying the life of Black Widow since she was featured in the 2010 film, "Iron Man 2". Not that Marvel is struggling in those stakes as I'm pretty sure the entire world is ready to watch the next Avengers film when it releases later this year.

Though we're not sure whether Feige will push hard enough for Natasha's standalone, we're really hoping that the film gets green lit and lands a spot before the end of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While Scarlett's contract was due to expire after "Avengers 4" - which will hit the big screen in 2019 - it is said she may have signed an extension to continue playing the former spy. 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".

Apparently, Marvel stated at some point a few years ago that they would eventually make the Black Widow movie, but they did so in such loose, vague terms that it didn't actually seem real.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) graduated from their solo franchises to the team-up - and were joined by two other heroes introduced along the way: Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Johansson).

Wonder Woman experienced enormous success at the box office, and was named the number one superhero movie of all time by Rotten Tomatoes, so it shows women can lead their own comic book adventure.
