Black Widow Solo Movie News Gets The Internet On Its Feet
Turns out, Marvel Studios is now serious about making a standalone Black Widow movie.
The arrival of Wonder Woman on the big screen was at least 30 years overdue, but the fact that we've had Scarlett Johansson kicking ass as Black Widow for almost a decade (in six films across three different franchises) on screen with no solo movie to call her own has always seemed a little weird.
Black Widow fans have been showing outcry and support for a standalone film ever since Johansson appeared as the character in 2010's "Iron Man 2".
Fans were calling for a Black Widow spin-off for a long time and the project has finally gained momentum with the latest news. 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.
According to Variety, the project is in its very early stages and it hasn't been greenlit yet.

Schaeffer made her feature screenwriting debut with the 2009 Tribeca film "TiMER", which she also directed.
Now, we just need to see if Scarlett actually gets paid more than any male actors in her own headliner. Following that, Hathaway also tapped Schaeffer to write her planned Dirty Rotten Scoundrels female-centric remake, Nasty Women.
There's more great news because The Wrap reports that Jac Schaeffer is set to write a script for a Black Widow standalone movie.
Baby steps, right? In the meantime, Johansson's Black Widow will be in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters this summer. "We've announced the next nine movies... through to the end of 2019".
