Marvel Taps Writer For Black Widow Solo Film

Avengers Infinity War

Well, we know at least one Marvel superhero who is surviving Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. After years of speculation and anticipation, Marvel Studios has now appointed screenwriter Jac Schaeffer to work on the Black Widow solo movie script.

According to Variety, the project is in its very early stages and it hasn't been greenlit yet. "She's a lead Avenger and has awesome stories in her own right to tell that we think would be fun to turn into a stand-alone franchise".

Schaeffer has just a few Hollywood credits under her belt, though Marvel has a track record of betting on relatively untested talent for its superhero movies. Only Guardians of the Galaxy and Spider-Man sequels have been officially announced, and while a Black Widow movie could hypothetically be set in the past, the activity here suggests that Scarlett Johansson should expect that her character will survive the next two Avengers films and be called on to suit up again.

Black Widow fans have been posting all sorts of GIFs and memes on Twitter, celebrating the potential of a Black Widow movie. The creative has gone on to write the 2014 Black List film The shower starring Anne Hathaway, who was so pleased to have worked with Schaeffer that she later approached her to write Nasty Women, an upcoming female-focused remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels expected to star Hathaway and Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson. Perhaps Marvel will find a woman for the director's chair.

Marvel Studios has done a lot of great things, but its resume of movies have all had male leads in them thus far. We'll keep you posted, though.
