Since kicking off its shared superhero universe in 2008, Marvel Studios has grown the MCU into a massive multi-billion dollar franchise that marks its 10th anniversary this year.

What do you want to see from a Black Widow movie? Don't expect a Black Widow movie before 2020.

You first saw her particular set of skills in Iron Man 2, and since then she has appeared in five other movies from the Avengers sagas.

Schaeffer, like The Post screenwriter Liz Hannah, seems poised to make a big Hollywood breakthrough with all these projects in the can.

Why Is Marvel Making Black Widow Now? Or a trailer! Or better yet: a release date. A couple films we do know of are Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 with director James Gunn returning and a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

For the record, the "Frozen" short is actually solid, it's just not particularly welcome at the beginning of a completely different film.

All in all, the most exciting thing here is that Black Widow may be getting a new movie!

This is great news all around, and a step toward the representation Marvel fans have been craving for years.

After what has felt like a lifetime, it looks like Marvel is finally giving the fans what they want - a Black Widow solo movie. She's a huge star and a big player in the universe so, Variety says, she was also brought in to discuss what she'd like to see in the movie. Marvel Studios has reportedly begun developing a standalone film centering on Natasha Romanoff a.k.a.

When Black Widow was last spotted, in "Captain America: Civil War", she had gone on the run from the United States government after helping Captain America and Winter Soldier escape to track down Helmut Zemo.

The movie has been on the radar for Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Johansson for some time, but has seemingly taken years to gain traction and move forward.
