In a Collider exclusive, The Hustle's Jac Shaeffer's original script for Black Widow is getting a rewrite. According to them Marvel has hired on The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby writer, Ned Benson. Now some people get real nervous when scripts start getting rewrote, but this early in I'm kinda all for it. To me this means they're really trying to get the best final product they can, & they're taking it real seriously. Cate Shortland of Lore is tapped to direct with the great Kevin Feige producing as usual. The film's been reported to take place before the first Avengers film. For me, hopefully giving a sort of origin story to the character. In fact I'd love for it to tackle what made her such a bad ass, & tie it right into where she comes into contact with Fury & S.H.I.E.L.D.. We won't know until its release obviously, but that's at least what I'm hoping for. What about y'all? What do y'all want from a Black Widow standalone? For that matter, do y'all want a Black Widow standalone in the first place? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Collider announced Cate Shortland beat out "approximately 75" other directors trying to nab the standalone Black Widow film. Featuring Scarlett Johansson leather clad, spy slash only non-powered Avenger out of 2. Now, nothing else is known about this film at all. Not even a date, but Collider thinks it a safe bet for 2020. It's also speculated it will be a prequel, exploring Widow's past. This is where I wanted to drop in my own two cents. The prequel idea would be cool, but I'm hoping they'll approach it from a past, off screen past, & now kinda thing. Where something post Avengers, follows through all of Avengers as we know offscreen, then affects wherever she is during this film we're speaking of now. That would be my perfect Black Widow film. Knowing Marvel Studios, it will at least live up to that, or completely blow it away. Anyway, anyone else have any ideas how to make a relevant Black Widow film? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
