Now it looks like Marvel has narrowed it down to three. According to new reports, Cate Shortland (Lore, Berlin Syndrome), Maggie Betts (Novitiate), and Asante are the most likely candidates. More on the story below.

Avengers: Infinity War may be hitting theaters this weekend, but many of us are already looking towards the future of the MCU. While we know films like Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel are currently awaiting release, films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel are the few films that have been confirmed for a Phase 4 release. As exciting as all of that sounds, it’s hard to believe that there has been no Black Widow movie. Well, until now that is.

Scarlett Johansson Has Some Ideas For A Possible ‘Black Widow’ Standalone Movie
  |  @   |  

Of all the heroes we know about that exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we know very little bout Black Widow’s history. In the five films that we have seen her in, her backstory was given in vague and sparse details. That sort of mystery would be enough for the character to get her own movie.

However, Johansson hasn’t given up hope. While she knows there is enough material for a standalone film to happen, she isn’t oblivious to the fact that she doesn’t know how much longer she will play the character. Check out what kind of ideas she has for a Black Widow film below.
