Standalone Black Widow Movie May Happen with Jac Schaeffer on Script

Marvel Black Widow movie gets writer in latest move toward greenlight

The arrival of Wonder Woman on the big screen was at least 30 years overdue, but the fact that we've had Scarlett Johansson kicking ass as Black Widow for almost a decade (in six films across three different franchises!) on screen with no solo movie to call her own has always seemed a little weird. And while Marvel wouldn't comment to Variety (or us) to confirm if that's true - if it is, it would mark the first actual movement on a film fans have been wanting for years. Black Widow is reportedly in very early stages of development, and the film has yet to be greenlit. Additionally, Schaeffer wrote, directed, and produced the 2009 movie TiMER as he theatrical debut. The character is already confirmed to appear in the yet-to-be-titled fourth Avengers movie, which opens on May 3, 2019.

Johansson's next known appearance as Black Widow comes just a few months from now when Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4.

Schaeffer may not be a recognizable name, but her status as a Blacklist Screenwriter is big. Jac Schaeffer's script for THE SHOWER, a comedy about an alien invasion during a baby shower, landed on the 2014 Black List and caught the attention of Anne Hathaway, who was so impressed that in addition to attaching herself to star in THE SHOWER, she also set Schaeffer up to pen a female-centric take on DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, which Hathaway will also star in. Even if the short itself was deemed a nuisance, it wasn't at the fault of Schaeffer's writing.

With time and space are pretty much not a factor once Phase 4 rolls around, the Widow movie could be a team-up movie, it could be a space movie, it could be a flashback origin story (though we saw some of that in Age of Ultron), it could none of those things, or it could be all of those things. "Of the characters that you've just mentioned I would say certainly that one we're creatively and emotionally committed to doing is Black Widow".
