  • “Black Widow” Film Enlists Screenwriter Jac Schaeffer

Marvel has hired screenwriter Jac Schaeffer to pen the script for a long-awaited Black Widow standalone movie, according to Variety.

For the longest time, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige and Scarlett Johansson have talked about making a stand-alone movie about the life of Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow.

We're here to report that nothing's really changed on that front, but we do, at least, have a Variety article quoting "sources" that reveals a writer for the yet to be greenlit film.

Forget the Avengers for now: Black Widow might finally be getting her own movie, and there's no assembling required.

Frank Beamer selected for College Football Hall of Fame
The 2018 class will be enshrined at the 61st annual NFF Awards Dinner on December 4 at the New York Hilton Midtown hotel. The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame announced jointly made the announcement Monday morning.

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. Johansson would return to play the character that she has played in six films now, with a seventh coming in Avengers: Infinity War. She wrote the 2014 Blacklist pick "The Shower", a female-centric sci-fi action comedy with Anne Hathaway attached to star and produce, as well as "Nasty Women", a remake of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" at MGM set to star Hathaway and Rebel Wilson.

Marvel Studios has done a lot of great things, but its resume of movies have all had male leads in them thus far.

The only question is if this will fit into Marvel's packed schedule, or if it'll be past the nine movies announced for the next two years. Schaeffer's was apparently the best, or the one that Feige liked the most. Tell us what you think below.

Now, we just need to see if Scarlett actually gets paid more than any male actors in her own headliner.
