Black Widow standalone movie finds writer in Jac Schaeffer

Marvel's Standalone 'Black Widow' Movie Gains Momentum With Jac Schaeffer Writing

Wednesday saw it learned that Marvel Studios hired Jac Schaeffer to pen the Black Widow movie script, with it said the film wasn't definitely green lit as of yet.

At the moment the project hasn't been officially greenlit, but this is a good development for the Black Widow movie.

Marvel's Standalone 'Black Widow' Movie Gains Momentum With Jac Schaeffer Writing

Now it's learned the movie is closer to happening as it's reported Scarlett Johansson will meet and have a sit down with Schaeffer about the flick.

It seems that the overwhelming success of the first female superhero to have her own solo movie (Wonder Woman) has finally convinced Marvel studio to give Black Widow a movie of her own. Thor: Ragnarok was basically a cosmic buddy-cop outing with Thor and Hulk; Spider-Man: Homecoming heavily featured Iron Man, who served as the web-slinger's mentor; and as for Captain America: Civil War - well, that was basically just Avengers 2.5. One possible option would be to tell a prequel story covering one of the Widow's pre-Avengers covert ops, so don't take this news as a guarantee of her surviving Infinity War... The Disney short "Olaf's Frozen Adventure" is another brainchild of Schaeffer. Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several candidates before tapping Schaeffer, and Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a "Black Widow" writer. She is now developing "Nasty Women", a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels starring Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, and Alex Sharp. But think about the other recent additions to the MCU's ever-growing slate that featured a single character's name in the title. In the meantime, we can look forward to seeing Johansson in action again when Infinity War hits our screens on 27 April 2018.
