Marvel pushing ahead with a standalone Black Widow movie

Yep, after years of elite foreign intelligence training, martial arts moves and even a few ballerina poses once in a while, Black Widow still hasn't been given her own movie - and we're not too happy about it.

Variety reports that screenwriter Jac Schaeffer has been tasked with writing the script for the upcoming film.

Schaeffer's prior work includes the Black List script for a comedy called The Shower, which grabbed the attention of Anne Hathaway, who attached herself to star. She wrote and directed 2009's TiMER and also penned the screenplay for the forthcoming Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake, Nasty Women. This is after 10 years since the MCU first started back in 2008 with Iron Man. I think part of it is also down to Black Widow's lack of superpowers.

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. Although Marvel hasn't unveiled an official Phase Four slate yet, so far "Spider-Man: Homecoming 2" and "Guardians of the Galaxy 3" are the only movies that have been officially announced for post-"Avengers 4".

Marvel fans have finally gotten the news they've been eagerly waiting to hear for years: the confirmation of a stand-alone Black Widow movie.

Black Widow is next set to appear in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, which will hit theaters on May 4, 2018. That's precisely why fans have been begging for a Black Widow solo movie ever since then, to explore the character much the same way as numerous other big Avengers were in their own outing. And finally, her standalone film could be moving forward. What can Black Widow do to stop these threats?

Turns out, Marvel Studios is now serious about making a standalone Black Widow movie. Within the juggernaut franchise, through films of varying quality, she's evolved into a complex character, whose loyalty and choices can determine the outcome of the fiercest battles.
