BLACK WIDOW Standalone Movie Gets Screenwriter

Even with Marvel failing to confirm one way or the other immediately, we're at least seeing a conversation continue to build around Black Widow finally getting a movie of her own. However what Marvel has reportedly done is look into hiring writers for the movie, in which allegedly Jac Schaeffer has been chosen to take on the movie's script.

Schaeffer has written the 2014 Blacklist pick The Shower, a sci-fi action comedy with Anne Hathaway attached to star and produce. She made her film debut in 2009 with dramedy, TiMER, and wrote Nasty Women, the upcoming gender-swapped remake of '80s classic Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Here it is, 2018 ... and heck, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Thor have all broken out on their own, while Widow's just hanging around, waiting for her time to come. Fans have little to no knowledge of what most of those movies will be and that's by design.

Though Black Widow has been a popular comic-book character for years, Johansson first took on the big-screen role in 2010's Iron Man 2, which starred Robert Downey Jr. Marvel Studios saw this opportunity to pursue the new film as the current Phase 3 slate of Marvel films are coming to an end. She previously wrote the Disney short animated film Olaf's Frozen Adventure and wrote an alien invasion story that was included in the infamous Black List, an annual listing of the best unmade screenplays in Hollywood. And finally, her standalone film could be moving forward.

If Marvel wants its own offering of R-rated films, a solo Black Widow project would be the flawless way to do it.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Widow is, of course, played by Scarlett Johansson. The character is set to return in Avengers: Infinity War. While audiences today associate the name with a cat-suited Scarlett Johansson, Black Widow has also been the name of not only a mystical being possessed by Satan, but also a Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. who was the ex-wife of Nick Fury. However, considering that they have hired a scriptwriter for the standalone film, fans are taking it as a sign that Marvel is dedicated to bringing "Black Widow" to theaters.

A martial arts and weapons expert and world class athlete, she defected to the United States and became an agent of SHIELD.
