The talk surrounding the potential Black Widow movie has been picking up a lot of steam in a very short space of time.
Recently, we spoke about the prospective solo movie, with some details missing from the initial story.
Now though, a new report has emerged from the Dail Mail suggesting the movie will arrive in cinemas in 2020, which puts it alongside James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in two of the three mystery release spots in that calendar year.
The Dail Mail also announced through the same report that the deal will make Scarlett Johansson, who is set to play Black Widow again, the highest paid actress in Hollywood after securing the $25 million movie deal combined with box office earnings and bonuses, putting her ahead of Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence who earned $26 and $24 million respectively last year.
Marvel Studio recently hire Jac Schaeffer, who has worked on Blacklist and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, to pen the screenplay for the Black Widow movie, but very few details are known about the project currently – it could be a post-Infinity War landscape, or pre-Avengers career retrospective, or even a potential all-female Avengers-styled epic.
Whatever it turns out to be, fans have certainly wanted this movie for some time, and it’s about time Natasha Romanoff got her time in the sun.
