After years of asking for it, we finally are one step closer to getting a Black Widow film. Jac Schaeffer was hired to pen a draft for the film and that Marvel Executives have held discussions with Scarlet Johansson about her own expectations for the film. The only thing really missing would be an official green-lighting of the project, but they may want to wait until the draft is done to decide if they will produce the film. That is pretty much all we know so far, but it seems that a few more steps are being taken towards getting the draft together, as Justin Kroll posted a rather interesting update.
BLACK WIDOW update: While Jac didn't get a chance to meet with ScarJo before she was tapped to pen BW, hearing the two are likely to sit down at the beginning of next month to talk about the film and how they see it going.

It is certainly a great thing that Johansson will be involved with developing the direction of the film. She has been playing the character since 2010’s Iron Man 2 and it would be a given that she wanted to offer some insight into her experience playing the character. So far we still not know if this will be a continuation of Black Widow’s life beyond the events of Avengers: Infinity War or if this might be an independent story set during her years when she worked as a spy for S.H.I.E.L.D. It is also unclear if we will see any other Avengers make an appearance in this film. The most obvious additions would be either Winter Solider or Hawkeye, especially the latter if they would finally show us the events teased during the first Avengers film. We have only been waiting since 2012 to find out what happened in Budapest.
