'Black Widow' Standalone Film Gets A Writer

Black Widow Movie Scarlett Johansson Marvel's Potential BLACK WIDOW Film Finds A Writer
Herman Weaver | 11 January, 2018, 09:26

Schaeffer has just a few Hollywood credits under her belt, though Marvel has a track record of betting on relatively untested talent for its superhero movies. Natasha Romanoff's popularity has skyrocketed in the years since her debut, but unlike most of her male Avengers counterparts, she's yet to get her own film.

Now that it finally seems to be happening, what would you like to see from a standalone BLACK WIDOW film?

According to TheWrap, Marvel Studios has tapped Blacklist screenwriter Jac Schaeffer to pen a Black Widow solo film starring Scarlett Johansson who has portrayed the character in various Marvel Studios films since 2010. Next month will be Marvel's first standalone film with an African American lead as Chadwick Boseman stars as Black Panther.

In a Vanity Fair piece, Marvel Studios Kevin Feige said the studio has "20 movies on the docket". Schaeffer gained notoriety through the Black List screenwriting contest and was selected by Feige after he met with Johansson, who told him what she wanted out of a Black Widow movie.

Say goodbye to 'Pokemon Go' on older iPhones
This week the folks at Niantic announced an update to Pokemon GO , an update that might not sit well for users of elderly iPhones. According to Eurogamer , the Pokemon GO will no longer have support for iPhone 5 and 5C beginning on 28th February.


The character originated on the big screen with Scarlett Johansson in "Iron Man 2" and has since appeared in five other Avengers movies.

The only question is if this will fit into Marvel's packed schedule, or if it'll be past the nine movies announced for the next two years. If this comes to fruition, Widow's movie would take place in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which is basically a huge question mark at this point.

We're more optimistic now that Schaeffer has boarded the project. "We think she's an awesome character". That title will go to Captain Marvel, scheduled for USA release 8 March 2019.
