Marvel Has Hired A Writer For Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow Movie

Marvel is moving forward with a Black Widow solo movie  Marvel

The highly anticipated "Black Widow" standalone movie starring Scarlett Johansson has roped in Jac Schaeffer to pen the script.

Black Widow - AKA Natasha Romanova - debuted in Marvel's Tales of Suspense #52 April 1964, originally as an antagonist of Tony Stark.

At the moment the project hasn't been officially greenlit, but this is a good development for the Black Widow movie. Marvel executives have also met Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a "Black Widow" writer. The film also stars Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Hiroyuki Sanada, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, and Josh Brolin. Thor: Ragnarok was basically a cosmic buddy-cop outing with Thor and Hulk; Spider-Man: Homecoming heavily featured Iron Man, who served as the web-slinger's mentor; and as for Captain America: Civil War - well, that was basically just Avengers 2.5. Of course, actress Scarlett Johansson has mentioned she would play the character if given her own movie. To date, there hasn't been a single Marvel Studios standalone film that hasn't featured at least one other character with ties to the greater MCU.

Suspect in custody after Greyhound bus pursuit across state lines, police say
Friday night when authorities received reports of an armed subject on board a bus from Milwaukee to Chicago. Authorities evacuated all the passengers to safety and no injuries were reported , officials said.

None of this is to suggest that a Black Widow solo movie will inevitably rob the eponymous heroine of the spotlight she deserves. The Disney short "Olaf's Frozen Adventure" is another brainchild of Schaeffer.

Schaeffer wrote the remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, titled Nasty Women, which will be made this year and will star Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, Meena Rayann and Munich co-star Francisco Labbe.

"I really go for the underdog", Waititi explained.
