Things are progressing quickly for the long-awaited Black Widow standalone film. Earlier this year, Marvel Studios brought in Jac Schaeffer (TiMER, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure) to pen the script. This was followed by meetings with Deniz Gamze Erguven (the Turkish movie Mustang), Chloe Zhao (The Rider), and Amma Asante (A United Kingdom) as potential directors.

Now it looks like Marvel has narrowed it down to three. According to new reports, Cate Shortland (Lore, Berlin Syndrome), Maggie Betts (Novitiate), and Asante are the most likely candidates. More on the story below.

Black Widow In Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War may be hitting theaters this weekend, but many of us are already looking towards the future of the MCU. While we know films like Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel are currently awaiting release, films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel are the few films that have been confirmed for a Phase 4 release. As exciting as all of that sounds, it’s hard to believe that there has been no Black Widow movie. Well, until now that is.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Jac Schaeffer had been tapped to write the screenplay for the Black Widow standalone film. And now it appears that Marvel is looking at a few female directors to helm the film. More on the story below.

Marvel's The Avengers #4

Marvel has hired Jac Schaeffer to write the screenplay for Black Widow, a standalone movie for the character played by Scarlett Johansson in The Avengers and sequels Age of Ultron and the upcoming Infinity War, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and sequel Captain America: Civil War, and more.

A standalone movie for Johansson’s character has been wanted by many for a long time now, but nothing has ever materialized. Marvel confirmed they were developing the project back in 2014, but this is the first real progress toward finally putting together a movie since then.

Scarlett Johansson Has Some Ideas For A Possible ‘Black Widow’ Standalone Movie

Black Widow Avengers Age Of Ultron Header

Of all the heroes we know about that exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we know very little bout Black Widow’s history. In the five films that we have seen her in, her backstory was given in vague and sparse details. That sort of mystery would be enough for the character to get her own movie. In fact, in 2014, Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige said a Black Widow movie was in development. But as we get closer to Avengers: Infinity War and Scarlett Johansson‘s contract is near expiration, it’s becoming more likely that a Black Widow film will not happen.

However, Johansson hasn’t given up hope. While she knows there is enough material for a standalone film to happen, she isn’t oblivious to the fact that she doesn’t know how much longer she will play the character. Check out what kind of ideas she has for a Black Widow film below.

Book Review: Marvel’s Black Widow: Forever Red By Margaret Stohl

Black Widow: Forever Red
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
Written by Margaret Stohl
Marvel Press
Release Date: October 13, 2015

Well, it’s about time, Marvel. Note to the reader: that was my reaction when I first heard of this young adult novel, Black Widow: Forever Red. Tell me there aren’t millions of people, youngsters and adult-ish types, who aren’t jonesing for this Avenger who fights alongside some legendary heroes, without having one iota of superpower or magic or billions of dollars of tech. Black Widow rolls in with guns and an overwhelming amount of badassery. So, yeah. When I saw this book was coming out, I definitely felt it was overdue.

Bestselling author Margaret Stohl penned this book and captured a version of Natasha Romanov to which most comics only eluded. Deeply focused and not a little broken, the reader gets inside the mind of this unstoppable assassin only to find she’s not exactly what you might expect. Whatever her past holds, she is a dedicated and diverse woman who seeks justice and, at times, revenge. This isn’t the movie version of the character; she’s not all sarcastic quips and nonchalant attitude, though there is a fair amount of both. The Black Widow is, above all else, driven. And Stohl goes above and beyond to explore as many nooks and crannies as she can in Natasha’s psyche.

‘SNL’: Marvel’s ‘Black Widow: Age Of Me’ Trailer

Black Widow

Every time Saturday Night Live gets a guest host who plays regularly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they just can’t resist getting in a dig or two at the superhero blockbuster factory via a well-produced and hilarious sketch.

In late 2012, they had on Jeremy Renner and the collaboration resulted in an Avengers spoof centered around the relative lameness of Hawkeye. Last September, Chris Pratt was more than happy to participate in one of the show’s Digital Shorts taking comedic aim at his recent star-making turn in the summer smash Guardians of the Galaxy. Most recently, Chris Hemsworth suited up as Thor for another Avengers sketch that portrayed the mighty God of Thunder as a glory-hogging party animal.

This weekend, Scarlett Johansson guest hosted Saturday Night Live to help promote the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so naturally the show had to feature her in a Marvel-spoofing skit as her MCU character and Avenger extraordinaire Black Widow. True to SNL form, the sketch chose to stick it to Marvel Studios by showing how they would approach making a solo movie starring Johansson as the sultry superspy in the mock trailer for Black Widow: Age of Me.

You can watch it here below.

The Avengers Jimmy Kimmel Live

The Avengers assembled at Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and pretty much took over the show (of course). The stars were there right before they were to “walk across the street” to the The Avengers: Age of Ultron world premiere. Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) participated in The Avengers Family Feud, played telephone, talked to “Super Fans,” and answered some pertinent questions.
