We may finally get a standalone movie for Scarlett Johansson's "Black Widow" character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (you know, the Avengers movies), according to a recent article published in Variety:

Marvel is finally pushing ahead with the highly anticipated “Black Widow” standalone movie starring Scarlett Johansson, with Jac Schaeffer penning the script.

Sources say this is still very early development, as the film has no greenlight, but naming a writer is the closest the studio has come to moving forward on a standalone pic. Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several candidates before tapping Schaeffer, and Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a “Black Widow” writer.

This is something that the Marvel fanbase has been looking for, and even our own Pippa Roslyn lamented Marvel's lack of female leads in their superhero movies. Is that a coincidence? I'd like to think not...

It's still too early to start planning your ticket purchases yet, but the news is definitely a positive sign!

Black Widow will appear next in Avengers: Infinity War, which opens in theaters May 4, 2018.
