According to the below sources and many others, Marvel’s Black Widow will begin its production late February. They are looking at a May 2020 release.
Although I was not happy with some of the choices Scarlett Johansson has made in the last few years, I would be lying if I’ve stated that I was not excited about this film. I’ve wanted a Black Widow movie since her appearance in 2012’s Avengers.
According to web sources, Cate Shortland (Lore, Berlin Syndrome) will be the film’s director, and she also has writer credits on the upcoming Captain Marvel film. Rod Hardy, who was the cinematographer for “Mission Impossible: Fallout” will be the cinematographer for Black Widow. Jany Temime, who was the costume designer for Skyfall and Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban, will do the costumes for this picture. Johansson is expected to receive a $15 million pay day just for filming. Also there are sources that confirm this will be Marvel’s first Rated R film. I’ve heard rumors that there will be a PG13 and Rated-R version out at the same time. There will be possible ties to Captain Marvel, but nothing is confirmed as of yet. I am not sure who else will be part of the cast as of now.
There are many different great stories they can pull from. I am excited to see which one they use. I am also excited to see Widow kick some serious ass. I LOVE martial arts, and Widow is suppose to be at human peak when it comes to fighting. She is also smart as hell, and and clever spy. This is Marvel’s time to really showcase what Widow can do. I know she technically does not have any “superpowers” but besides combat and superhuman strength, Captain America had no superpowers. This is also Marvel’s chance of giving Widow a great fight. I know many would like to see Bucky in the film due to him training her in the comics. It seems like she hinted at something. Does anyone remember when Widow and Bucky were fighting in Civil War, she said to him as he was chocking her “You could at least recognize me.” There was never a meeting between the two characters in the MCU except the story she told Captain of him shooting threw her to hit someone else. Bucky never met her as himself, only as the Winter Soldier.
This could very well be the film to land Johansson an Oscar nomination/win if done properly. Now that the Academy is open to Superhero films, Black Widow could be the one to truly make a mark.
What do you guys think???January 23, 2019 at 7:45 am #1202745448This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.January 23, 2019 at 7:53 am #1202745456
I´ve read on other forum that Charlize Theron and Eva Green are competing for a character on this film.I would love both of them in here tbh.
I love both actresses, but I feel like Charlize is the go-to-blonde when it comes to action films. I would be more open with Rosemund Pike or Saorise Ronan, but those Theron and Green are great choices.January 23, 2019 at 9:12 am #1202745545
This is going to be a lot of fun. I would hope we get Charlize as well.January 23, 2019 at 9:25 am #1202745564
This is my most anticipated comicbook film.January 26, 2019 at 6:43 pm #1202749786
Looks like Marvel will move forward with Black Widow being its first R-Rated film. At least that is reported.February 3, 2019 at 9:11 am #1202760103
I made a mistake in the first post. Jac Schaeffer is believed to be the writer of Black Widow. Some sources are now saying that film will begin in the London during the months of February and March. https://comicbook.com/marvel/2019/02/03/black-widow-filming-location-reportedly-revealed/
I’ll keep adding updates…February 7, 2019 at 12:42 pm #1202764444
Looks like production will be pushed back for June of this year. I have a hunch that casting is more of the issue than anything. Maybe the selected actresses/actors need more training time. Who knows.
I do know that the May/1/2020 slot will be hard for them to push for due to a later production start time.
They are still considering an R-Rated picture.
I WANT RED HAIR AGAIN!!!February 12, 2019 at 9:59 pm #1202774203
Jim Barr from Star Wars: Episode IX is rumored to serve as the art director.February 13, 2019 at 4:07 am #1202774330
The fact that Cate Shortland is directing does pipe up my interest a little. She’s a very talented director but for the life of me I can see her pulling this sort of stuff off. I do of course admit bias as I don’t like comic book adaptations so I’ll probably watch this on home video just for Shortland.February 15, 2019 at 12:43 am #1202777027
If anyone will be in London during the summer, and you hear or see anything that has to do with “Blue Bayou” it is the code name they are using for Black Widow.

This is their chance to do something different. R-rating + director + probably period setting give me hope.
Pantheon of acting: Uta / Elizabeth / Richard / Sandy (Virginia Woolf), Bibi / Liv (Persona), Sandrine (La Ceremonie), Brie (Short Term 12), Jodie (Silence of the Lambs), Jodie (Killing Eve), Nicole (The Others), Eva (Penny Dreadful), Timothée (CMBYN), Lupita (Us)February 15, 2019 at 10:34 pm #1202778005
Ned Benson has been hired to rewrite the film. This could be the reason for the set back.

If Marvel wants to bring in Yelena Belova (other Black Widow), I think Rosamund Pike would be perfect.February 24, 2019 at 12:30 am #1202787159
