There have been rumors and hints for a while that Black Widow would be getting her own movie eventually in the MCU. Black Widow AKA Natasha Romanoff AKA Scarlett Johansson has been a staple of the MCU since her introduction in Iron Man 2. Since that movie, the character has only appeared in the various team-up movies, including all Avengers films so far, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. So many fans and artists alike feel it could be the right time for ScarJo to get her first top billing on a Marvel movie.
Now, we have a possible synopsis for the movie, the membership-only listing ProductionWeekly has posted a synopsis for Black Widow, this synopsis was then shared on Twitter by user KlassicBerry as you will see below.
However, here is that synopsis for those who cannot access the link the user shared.
At birth the Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanova) is given to the KGB, which grooms her to become its ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her as the action movies to present-day New York, where she is a freelance operative. The standalone film will find Romanoff living in the United States 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union.
Now, the BS gauge in my head is on high alert with this one.

We’re a bit torn on this one. While Production Weekly tends to be relatively reliable on some things, it also tends to be filled with placeholder information. That being said, this could also be true. It may be some time before we find out if this is accurate or not as so far this movie has not been greenlit for production. Until that happens we won’t hear anything official from Marvel.
Interestingly I would say there is a strong possibility of this never happening movie wise and instead the Black Widow story being adapted into one of the Limited series of Marvel shows being created for Disney’s new streaming service Disney Play. It seems like a Black Widow backstory involving the break-up of the USSR and spies would seem to fit better in an eight-hour limited show than it would a blockbuster movie. For a start, I would not be expecting to see any superheroes, villains or abilities in a show set well before Tony Stark created his Iron Man suit.
Take this with a hefty dose of salt until we get further confirmation from the Mouse. Let us know what you think about this in the usual place below.
