Scarlett Johansson's standalone Black Widow a step closer

  • Black Widow Movie Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson is preparing to star in a standalone Black Widow film for Marvel Studios. In the past eight years since Black Widow first appeared in Iron Man 2, every reporter asking about a Black Widow film only received minimal answers from the people at Marvel Studios. She's also written Black List script The Shower, which tells of an alien invasion that goes down during a baby shower. She wrote and directed 2009's TiMER and also penned the screenplay for the forthcoming Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake, Nasty Women.

Still, it's a promising development for a movie fans have been clamoring for since, oh, about 2008, when the character made her first big-screen appearance in Iron Man 2.

It appears that Marvel has brought in Schaeffer to put together a script and is waiting to see what she produces before deciding whether to move forward. The studio's history of open-ended comments, and brief windows into its process has only whetted interest in a possible Widow movie.

However, I think the underlying sexism of Marvel, or rather the presumption of sexism Marvel have on their audience, is only part of the story.

While we have to wait until 2019 to see Brie Larson suit up for Captain Marvel, the future looks even brighter with Marvel now working on a Black Widow movie too.

The multi-layer material prevents the cup being recycled in exclusively paper or plastics recycling streams. Any stores that have in-house recycling options should also label their cups to reflect that.


After years of waiting, fans have finally gotten the news they've been hoping for: Marvel is moving ahead with a stand-alone Black Widow movie.

She explained: "It's very surreal for me to watch these new cast members come in and get their feet wet and breath new life into these characters who are so iconic". According to Variety, Feige considered a number of writers before landing on Schaeffer. Should Marvel create an origin story about Natasha Romanoff as the spy? "It would have to be totally different than any of the other standalone films".

At long last, the company may have selected the right screenwriter for the job.

If "Black Widow" comes to be a reality, it will be Marvel's second superhero drama, to be led by a woman.
