'Black Widow' standalone movie finds writer in Jac Schaeffer

Black Widow Solo Movie Already Making Progress

Plans for the long-awaited solo movie of Scarlett Johansson's Marvel character, Black Widow, is finally moving forward, as the project adds a screenwriter to pen the yet untitled movie's script. Now before we get too excited, the project doesn't have an official green light at this stage, but the hiring of Schaeffer does indicate that it's closer than it's ever been. To date, there hasn't been a single Marvel Studios standalone film that hasn't featured at least one other character with ties to the greater MCU. The character of "Black Widow" is portrayed by Scarlett Johansson. Since then, she has appeared in four other Marvel movies, and she is set to appear in the two upcoming Avengers films.

The Captain Marvel movie starring Brie Larson as the titular character is now in development which will be Marvel's first female-led superhero film and hopefully, it'll open the floodgates and show the successful movie studio that there's an appetite for these sorts of comic book movies.

Should the Black Widow movie be greenlit for production, it would most likely come after MCU's Phase Three, which will run until 2019.
