    Black Widow (2020)

    Marvel’s Standalone ‘Black Widow’ Movie Gains Momentum With Jac Schaeffer Writing

    Sources say this is still very early development, as the film has no greenlight, but naming a writer is the closest the studio has come to moving forward on a standalone pic. Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several candidates before tapping Schaeffer, and Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a “Black Widow” writer.

    It's about time, this has been swirling around since Phase One and Ike Perlmudder kept saying people won't watch a movie with a female lead. If he were still in charge we probably wouldn't be getting Captain Marvel either.

    Or it would be Mar-Vell instead of Carol Danvers, probably, and she'd show up at some point in her 80s/00s Ms. Marvel outfit.

    Can Scarlett carry a movie? I don't think she's a bad actress just a far superior supporter.

    Well if Lucy or GitS are any indication, no.

    Marvel has so far met with Deniz Gamze Erguven (the Turkish movie Mustang), Chloe Zhao (The Rider), and Amma Asante (A United Kingdom) to direct. There are others still waiting to be interviewed.

    If they can somehow make this like The Winter Soldier, but on a smaller scale, this movie could be great. Jon Favreau did well with the character in IM2. Pretty sure he's busy ATM tho.

    Given recent developments in the comics, I wonder if we'll see a similar backstory be revealed for MCU Natasha.

    What do you mean by this and has her basic ass origins been changed at all for MCU versus what was set in the comics?

    I don't see an issue with Scarlet Johansson back in tight leather, kicking fuckers around with extra rated R violence sprinkled in. Should've given it to the Russo Bros so we could have Winter Soldier levels of action.

    Personally I have no issues with female lead. I just never found Scarlet Johanssen to be a very good actress and not sure she can carry a film herself. Looking back at things she did similar to this, Lucy and Ghost in the Shell and neither are what I would consider exactly "good". Maybe an a fun airplane watch but that's about it.

    I liked Lucy until the finale. I also liked GitS, including the finale. FITEME

    Not turning it in to THAT discussion, was just joking. Pretty sure BW will follow the Civil War, Ragnarok, Homecoming formula of featuring another Avenger. Hawkeye and Fury at the very least. Maybe a Marvel villain we haven't seen yet.
