For years, fans have been wanting to see Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow to lead her own film, but given Marvel Studios’ desire to stick to their plan, there’s simply been no room for such a movie. With Phase 3 coming to a close in the next couple years, the time to think about the possibility is now.+
As we previously reported, the film project gained some real momentum for the first time, with writer Jac Schaeffer locking down the scribe gig for the film. But what story will it tell? It sounds like they don’t quite yet know themselves either, and are going to be discussing that very soon, if we can believe a recent tweet from Variety reporter Justin Kroll.
“BLACK WIDOW update: While Jac didn’t get a chance to meet with ScarJo before she was tapped to pen BW, hearing the two are likely to sit down at the beginning of next month to talk about the film and how they see it going.”
In other words, don’t expect this to happen overnight. As mentioned above, Marvel Studios still needs to finish out their slate of films through 2019, and only then will the schedule open up for smaller projects. With that in mind, it gives Schaeffer plenty of time to lock down a solid story and script.
Plus, with Black Widow’s story likely being a smaller scale affair, there’s more of a possibility of them turning it into something more midbudget in nature that can be squeezed in somewhere in 2020 or so.
