Ever since Scarlett Johansson made her debut in Marvel’s Iron Man movie as the character Black Widow, there have murmurs about her character possibly getting her own standalone movie. The good news is that it looks like the rumors could be true because according to a report from Variety, development has already begun.


The report claims that the movie is still in the very early stages of development and that the movie has actually yet to be greenlit. However what Marvel has reportedly done is look into hiring writers for the movie, in which allegedly Jac Schaeffer has been chosen to take on the movie’s script.

It also claim that some of Marvel’s execs have met up with Johansson to discuss what they would want from a writer for the movie. Marvel has yet to officially comment on the report, so it is unclear as to how accurate Variety’s report is. However assuming that it is true, given that a director has yet to be named and the movie greenlit, it will probably be a long time before we get any official information about the movie.

In the meantime Johansson is expected to reprise her role as Black Widow in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie which is slated for release later this year, as well as the next (and untitled) Avengers movie which is set for a 2019 release.
