Black Widow Solo Movie Already Making Progress

Marvel is moving forward with a Black Widow solo movie  Marvel

Wednesday saw it learned that Marvel Studios hired Jac Schaeffer to pen the Black Widow movie script, with it said the film wasn't definitely green lit as of yet. Marvel's reluctance to do a female-led superhero movie is quite outstanding especially considering the fact that they already have a great female hero to chose from in Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow.

Johansson has appeared as the character in six films, the next one being this summer's "Avengers: Infinity War". Since then, she has appeared in four other Marvel movies, and she is set to appear in the two upcoming Avengers films.

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

Johansson and several Marvel leading ladies - Ragnarok's Tessa Thompson, Guardians of the Galaxy's Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, and Pom Klementieff, and Captain Marvel's Brie Larson - pitched an all-female Marvel movie to Feige, who was receptive of the idea.

The FDA is putting new limits on the amount of prescription cold and cough medicine that children should be given. It's always important to read medicine labeling, too - even if it's not obtained by prescription.

In 2014, Marvel finally appeared to move away from the trend when it announced that it would release a solo movie about Captain Marvel.

Anyway, things might be moving ahead on the Black Widow movie front. Johansson herself said she would want to make it happen, as has Marvel boss Kevin Feige - reiterating past year that the company is "creatively and emotionally" committed to developing the spin-off. Her script caught the eye of Anne Hathaway, who quickly attached herself to star in the pic.

Hathaway was so impressed with her work that she soon tapped Schaeffer to write "Nasty Women", a new female-centric take on "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" that also stars Hathaway.
