Ever since audiences got to see Marvel delve a bit into the character of Natasha Romanoff in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they’ve become hungry to see what Scarlett Johansson’s character could do in a film of her own. However, in the years since then, while Marvel Studios has been seemingly receptive to the idea, they certainly haven’t worked to make it any kind of priority in their production line.

However, a new report from Variety hints that those days may be coming to an end. According to the outlet, they may be pushing forward with the idea of a Black Widow standalone film, and that they have hired a writer to pen the script. The writer in question is relative newcomer Jac Schaeffer.

Schaffer only has one finished film to her name (and one other in post-production, according to IMDB), but perhaps his most high-profile project of hers is the Disney short, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.” However, before you get up in arms about this choice, remember that it was a project that went through a lot of hands. When faced with a different type of film, there’s still quite the chance it’ll succeed. Also, Marvel Studios is well-known for their eye for new talent.

Additionally, according to the outlet, Shaeffer’s Black List script, The Shower, caught Anne Hathaway’s attention, and the actress is now set to star in that film. Clearly, there’s something there.

All in all, the most exciting thing here is that Black Widow may be getting a new movie! This has been a long time coming, and we hope that this project makes it through the process over at Marvel Studios.

    I found it fascinating how much Agent Carter was able to explore Black Widow’s story through Dottie Underwood.
    If that was the intention of Agents of Sheild then that was it for only one character

    I’m hoping they do a female-centric team up movie, where Black Widow is the leader/protagonist, but we have some other MCU females like Scarlet Witch, The Wasp and unm…..is that it??

    Plus a token male on the team just for comic relief. I’d say Falcon or Hawkeye

    • Victor Roa

      Maybe this is part of the Fox deal because the more famous Marvel females Storm, Pheonix, Rouge, Dazzler, Psylock, Kitty Pryde, Emma Frost, etc
