Rumors of a potential Black Widow movie in Marvel Studio’s pipeline have been making rounds for quite some time now. As per reports, Disney is developing a Black Widow solo film which will have Scarlet Johansson reprising the popular role.
Johannson portrayed the character of Black Widow in Iron Man 2 (2010) and was subsequently found starring in The Avengers (2012), Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014),, Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), and Captain America: Civil War (2016) as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. She will also reprise the role in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, which is set to hit theaters on May 4, 2018, and the untitled Avengers 4 which is scheduled for 2019.
While Marvel Studios has not revealed much about the release schedule of the long-awaited Black Widow solo movie, Captain America has just confirmed that it’s definitely in the works.
In a recent interview with ET Canada about Black Panther, Chris Evans accidentally confirmed that the Black Widow movie is indeed happening.
“There’s nothing [Marvel Studios] can’t do,” Evans said. “And I’m sure it’s gonna have the exact same effect when Captain Marvel comes out, and then the Black Widow movie comes out. Marvel just has the winning recipe and they’re kind of one step ahead of everybody else.”
According to a report from Daily Mail, Marvel has signed Johansson to star in the film for a whopping $25 million. This would make her the highest paid actress in Hollywood. The studio has hired screenwriter Jac Schaeffer to pen the script for the upcoming Black Widow solo movie. Johansson is reportedly working closely with Schaeffer on the project. If all goes as planned, the solo movie will likely hit the theaters in 2020 and it is one of the titles that will be part of MCU phase 4.
