Marvel is ready to make a solo movie for Black Widow


Earlier this week, the internet lost it - and understandably so - when it was finally confirmed that Marvel were pushing a Black Widow solo film into production. However, unlike fellow Avengers teammates like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor, Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff has never had the opportunity to star in her own movie, instead either being a supporting character or part of an ensemble. All it means is that fans should probably expect to see some other familiar faces from the Marvel mythos, be it the comic books or the MCU proper, should Marvel Studios continue to move forward with the project. Schaeffer also wrote "Nasty Women", a female-centric remake of Steve Martin and Michael Caine's comedy "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels".

The Black Widow movie has been in a state of limbo for quite some time now which is utterly ridiculous in my mind. Last year, Scarlett Johansson said that she's talked with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige about making a standalone adventure for the former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent-turned-Avenger-turned-fugitive, and they both agreed that she deserves her own story, but it's all a matter of timing. Johansson herself said she would want to make it happen, as has Marvel boss Kevin Feige - reiterating past year that the company is "creatively and emotionally" committed to developing the spin-off.

At the moment the project hasn't been officially greenlit, but this is a good development for the Black Widow movie. Some could see the notion of it being r-rated as a risky idea, since Johansson's appearance in six films, (the next one is in this summer's "Avengers: Infinity War.") which were all family-friendly MCU tent-poles.

Variety's Justin Kroll reports that the Black Widow movie is taking some pretty major steps in the next handful of weeks.
