Black Widow Standalone Moves Forward with a New Writer

Black Widow Standalone Moves Forward with a New Writer

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. While the news has already created a huge wave of excitement among the fans of the scarlet-haired badass assassin, speculations about the movie being an excellent opportunity for the Marvel cinematic universe to enter the R-rated territory have also emerged.

Variety has confirmed that Jac Schaeffer has been hired to write the script. Schaeffer's first feature credit was the 2009 sci-fi romantic comedy, TiMER.

According to reports, the studio has hired screenwriter Jac Schaeffer to work up a script for the spinoff adventure, with Scarlett Johansson in place to don the catsuit one more time.

None of this is to suggest that a Black Widow solo movie will inevitably rob the eponymous heroine of the spotlight she deserves.

Black Widow first debuted in MCU in "Iron Man 2" and since then has appeared in two "Avengers" films as well as "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Captain America: Civil War".

The character is played by actor Scarlett Johansson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Schaeffer wrote the remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, titled Nasty Women, which will be made this year and will star Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, Meena Rayann and Munich co-star Francisco Labbe. This movie will be Marvel's second movie which will star a woman in the lead character as a superhero after the Brie Larson-starrer "Captain Marvel".
