Marvel Hires Screenwriter Jac Schaeffer To Work On ‘Black Widow’ Script

Marvel Studios has hired Jac Schaeffer to write the script for Black Widow standalone movie, in which Scarlett Johansson will be playing the title role.

As per Variety, Marvel has at last decided to pay heed to all those fans who have wondered at some point why Johansson’s Black Widow character can’t have her own film. After years of speculation and anticipation, Marvel Studios has now appointed screenwriter Jac Schaeffer to work on the Black Widow solo movie script.

Black Widow/ Natasha Romanoff was first introduced in Iron Man 2. Since then, interest in the character has only grown, especially after The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

With Marvel deciding to go in with the demands of innumerable Black Widow fans, the studio promised to make a standalone movie for Romanoff two years ago. However, they failed to pull it off until now. Even though we do not know details on the studio’s plan of action for the film, this is probably the best news that can come for all Black Widow fans as of now.

The Black Widow standalone film will be Johansson’s eighth film as the character. The actresses’ contract with Marvel studios was to expire after Avengers 4. However, with the MCU deciding to go ahead with the solo film, it seems like Johansson’s contract have been extended.

Jac Schaeffer is not a very popular face, she is mostly known for being the screenwriter for 2014’s Blacklist for Anne Hathaway. The writer also worked on the script for Nasty Women, the female remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Now that Black Widow has a writer, it makes it the early few films to be shot in Marvel’s Phase 4. The next move on the part of the studio would be to zero-in on a strong director who can take the film up to its completion. If everything goes as per the plan, the film should hit the theaters sometime in 2020.
