A "Black Widow" Movie is Coming

It is way past time

Even though it has inexplicably taken a very long time, Marvel seems to finally be moving forward with a movie dedicated to Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, with the studio hiring writer Jac Schaeffer to put together a script

Now a recent Hollywood Reporter story has floated the names of some female filmmakers as possible directors for the Black Widow movie, noting that Marvel Studios has met with Deniz Gamze Erguven (Mustang), Chloe Zhao (The Rider), and Amma Asante (A United Kingdom), with Variety reporter Justin Kroll adding Maggie Betts (Novitiate) and Angela Robinson (Professor Marston And The Wonder Woman) to the list as well.

None of these people have gotten the job yet, but as /Film notes, they’re all up-and-coming directors who seem well-positioned for the kind of big breakout that a Black Widow movie could be. A recent rumor claimed that Black Widow would be a pre-Iron Man 2 prequel featuring Johansson and a still-brainwashed Winter Soldier long before either of them join up with the Avengers, but that’s very much unconfirmed. 

Either way, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has already set he won’t announce any new movies until after Avengers 4, so we don’t even know if Black Widow will happen, but it’s now looking more and more likely that it really will.

Bucky to join Scarlett Johansson? 

(Express)  -  The two superheroes will next in appear in Avengers Infinity War, but unlike Iron Man and Captain America they’re much more likely to stick around in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now in a new interview with Bad Taste, Stan has revealed how he would love to team up with Johansson in her upcoming Black Widow solo movie.
He said: “Yeah, absolutely! Of course! I mean, anytime I'm ready.
“They have a very nice history in my opinion. It's very intricate.”
Stan continued: “The truth is he actually taught her in the comic books. He was a teacher to her.
“It's all set during a specific, interesting time. The Cold War. It's all a very spy thriller-ish, noir-ish story.
“It would be very interesting to explore that on film. I would love if they do that. You know, I hope. Maybe they will.”
"It's all...there's so many thing that are pressing in this film I think that, a scene between Black Widow and the Winter Soldier would be a bit far to the left.
“There are other pressing issues to deal with. But it's nice to have that there.
“It's a great opportunity that one day we might explore. It depends on how they feel.”
