Black WidowAfter nearly a decade of playing the role, Scarlett Johansson is finally getting her own Black Widow movie.
The one thing that DC has on Marvel is a movie starring a female hero. 2017’s “Wonder Woman” was a wonderful movie, and its sequel looks just as promising so far.

Thankfully Marvel is catching up: “Captain Marvel” is coming out in early 2019, and the Black Widow movie is getting further into its development. 

Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige has stated that it is putting a lot of time and effort into making it right: the character has, after all, been appearing in these movies for almost a decade, so she deserves a proper movie. More than 65 directors have reportedly been interviewed to take on the project, and Marvel plans on hiring a female director.

This week, Deadline reported that Marvel had narrowed the directing gig down to three women.

While Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff) doesn’t actually have superhuman powers (or enough money to make an iron suit), the character is integral to the franchise. She uses her skills as a former assassin and a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent to bring the Avengers together and keep them that way. 

She has a complex but little-seen history, since she used to be a deadly assassin for the KGB. She was spared by Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), who was supposed to assassinate her.
Here’s everything we know about her standalone movie:

Phase 4 starts after “Avengers 4” with “Spider-Man: Homecoming 2” (July 2019), and will also include “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” which doesn’t have a release date yet.

Scaheffer wrote 2009’s “TiMER,” the short “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” and 2019’s upcoming “The Hustle,” which stars Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. 

Johansson is reportedly contributing ideas to the screenplay. In 2016, Johansson told Variety about the endless possibilities for Black Widow film:

“There’s a lot of places you can go — you can bring it back to Russia. You could explore the Widow program. There’s all kinds of stuff that you could do with it. You could really uncover the identity of who this person is, where she comes from and where she’s part of. There are so many ways you can go. I think it would just have to be very much like its own specific thing. It would have to have its own specific vibe. It would have been totally different than any of the other standalone films. I think if the fans wanted it enough, then it would probably become a reality.”
 
Filming will begin next year.

This probably means that the movie will come out in 2020 or 2021, depending which half of 2019 filming takes place.
