BLACK WIDOW Will Begin Production at the End of February
We know that Marvel is working on developing a Black Widow film. We don’t know much about the film, but we do know that Scarlett Johansson will be returning as Natasha Romanova and according to Omega Underground, the film will begin production on February 28, 2019. We also know that Cate Shortland will be serving as director. While I would normally hope this means that we’ll learn more about the film, I’m not holding out hope for that until June or July of this year, a couple months after the release of Avengers: Endgame.
This production date may also help feed the idea that Katherine Langford will be playing a young Natasha Romanova in Endgame as she just dyed her hair red.
The story is rumored to be set in 2006, which is a couple years prior to the events of Iron Man. The characters Ref Guardian and Taskmaster are also rumored to be a part of the story. There’s also been talk of developing it as an R-rated film.
No release date has been given for Black Widow, but many are speculating it will be the mysterious film set for release on May 1, 2020.
