Apparently, Marvel has already met with over 40 directors about the Black Widow job to date.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has previously made a selling point out of the studio's meticulousness in choosing directors; In this case, it shows that they're not taking the business of making a Black Widow movie lightly.

After an extensive search by the studio, and years of fans asking about the project, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Australian director Cate Shortland will helm Marvel Studios' Black Widow movie starring Scarlett Johansson. "Her most recent film was Berlin Syndrome, a 2017 thriller that starred Teresa Palmer". With the latest phase of Marvel films coming to a close, Marvel saw this as the best time to move forward with the project.

The screenplay is being written by Jac Schaeffer, who wrote The Hustle, a remake of the 198os comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which stars Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson and Tim Blake Nelson and will be released by MGM next year. Even though she is without usual fare of super abilities heroes usually have, such as super strength or speed, she is an expert marksman and a highly skilled martial artist and secret agent.
