Marvel's standalone Black Widow movie might actually happen.

Hollywood movie director Jac Schaeffer is known to have made her directorial debut with the 2009 movie TiMER, which was a feature movie. While the news has already created a huge wave of excitement among the fans of the scarlet-haired badass assassin, speculations about the movie being an excellent opportunity for the Marvel cinematic universe to enter the R-rated territory have also emerged.

Jac Schaeffer To Pen The Script Of 'Black Widow'

According to a story published on timesofindia.indiatimes.com, Jac is said to have been roped in by Marvel Studios to write the script for a solo "Black Widow" movie. Fans have long clamored for equal treatment with some of the other Avengers getting trilogies, but nothing for Scarlett Johansson. She's since found herself on the Black List for her script, The Shower, which caught the eye of actress Anne Hathaway, who asked to star in it. Hathaway also hired Schaeffer to write the upcoming Nasty Women, a Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake that Hathaway will star in.

Johansson has till now appeared as the character in six films, the next one being this summer's "Avengers: Infinity War". However, considering the future of the Deadpool franchise among others the concept of R-rated Marvel Cinematic Universe films is not very farfetched. The studio, meanwhile, went on to produce and release more male-led standalone movies for its tried and tested superheroes like Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor, as well as brand new characters like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange.
