Marvel's 'Black Widow' Movie Looks More Likely After Landing Writer

Schaeffer has previously worked on smaller films like TiMER, Mr. Stache and Olaf's Frozen Adventure, and the Black Widow project will be her first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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. Considering that Warner Bros. has mostly bungled its recent DC films and Marvel had already introduced Black Widow in multiple movies, that has to rank as one of the bigger upsets of all time. More than all that: the writer we're getting is Jac Schaeffer.

It's looking like a Black Widow solo movie may end up happening after all.

At times eliciting uncomfortable groans, Meyers brought up Harvey Weinstein , Donald Trump , Kevin Spacey , and Woody Allen . Hong Chau of Downsizing then joked, "But those numbers may be off since a white man did the math".

Now, we just need to see if Scarlett actually gets paid more than any male actors in her own headliner. This is a flawless opportunity for Marvel Studios to play with genres other than strict superheroics, much like they did with space opera/light comedy in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Schaeffer gained notoriety through the Black List screenwriting contest and was selected by Feige after he met with Johansson, who told him what she wanted out of a Black Widow movie.

Johansson has appeared as Natalia Romanov/Black Widow in six Marvel Studios films which include Jon Favreau's "IRON MAN 2", Joss Whedon's "THE AVENGERS" and "AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON", Joe and Anthony Russo's "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER", "CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR" and this summer's "AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR".

The only question is if this will fit into Marvel's packed schedule, or if it'll be past the nine movies announced for the next two years. That title will go to Captain Marvel, scheduled for United States release 8 March 2019. "We think she's an wonderful character".
