The Black Widow movie is going ahead and Marvel has hired scriptwriter Jac Schaeffer to pen the script for the Scarlett Johansson led superhero movie. Apparently, Marvel President, Kevin Feige, had met with a number of writers before opting for Schaeffer who's already impressed people in Hollywood with her Black Listed script, The Shower, which is now in the works with Anne Hathaway set to star.

It looks like fans may finally get the Black Widow film they've been asking for since the introduction of Natasha Romanoff in 2010's Iron Man 2.

At the moment the project hasn't been officially greenlit, but this is a good development for the Black Widow movie.

Johansson has till now appeared as the character in six films, the next one being this summer's "Avengers: Infinity War". Schaeffer is best known for writing the recent short Olaf's Frozen Adventure, and the 2009 sci-fi romance TiMER which she also directed. The movie will star Anne Hathaway, who also appeared in another movie Schaeffer wrote called Nasty Women.

Helicopter with seven onboard goes missing from Mumbai
Based on the information received, the chopper which had two pilots and five passengers did not land at the designated oil rig. The Dauphin helicopter lost contact with Air Traffic Control around 10.35 am almost 30 nautical miles off Mumbai .

It seems with Kevin Feige now having complete control of Marvel Studios that he is free to have movies starring female actors and characters, as leaked e-mails revealed that Marvel CEO Ike Perlman was against solo Marvel female movies due to previous failures of Elektra, Catwoman and Supergirl. There are now no announced plans for such a film.

None of this is to suggest that a Black Widow solo movie will inevitably rob the eponymous heroine of the spotlight she deserves.

Unfortunately, the initial report didn't give us much to go on, with The Wrap's scoop really only confirming that this thing exists and has a screenwriter in the form of Jac Schaeffer.
