Marvel Hires Writer for Black Widow Movie They Should've Made Years Ago

Scarlett Johansson is preparing to star in a standalone Black Widow film for Marvel Studios. But they have hired a writer for it. Jac Schaeffer, who is now working on Nasty Women, the next remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which will star Anne Hathaway.

Are you excited about Marvel developing a Black Widow movie? Since then, she has appeared in 6 Marvel films and is scheduled to appear in Avengers: Infinity War later this year. In 2013, when asked whether the Marvel Cinematic Universe would produce a solo film for a female superhero soon, president Kevin Feige said that Marvel was not now planning to, but it was possible. Diversity is something which they are willing to change with Black Panther coming next month set to be the first Marvel film with a mostly black cast and Captain Marvel also in development with Brie Larson as the titular character.

Hopefully, Black Widow will be heavy on the espionage and hard action and easy on the pure superheroics. What it won't be, though, is Marvel's first solo female superhero movie. Now we can also add Black Widow to the schedule, though it's unclear where exactly in Phase 4 the solo film will arrive.

There were some unbelievable books released this past year, by both large and small publishers, but the big two released a solid lineup of great comics. She made her film debut in 2009 with dramedy, TiMER, and wrote Nasty Women, the upcoming gender-swapped remake of '80s classic Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Sources have told The Wrap and Variety that Marvel has hired a writer for the movie, Jac Schaeffer. Finally bringing in Black Widow into the mix does feel a little late considering Johansson's character has already appeared in 6 films already, but better late than never. "I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committ [ed] to doing is Black Widow", said Feige. She was responsible for the screenplay of the Frozen short Olaf's Frozen Adventure, which aired in theatres in front of Coco before being pulled by Disney after backlash on social media.

This May 2016 piece from Vanity Fair summed up the frustration at the contortions Marvel boss Kevin Feige seemed to be putting himself through to avoid committing to a Black Widow film.
