According to VarietyThe Favorite favorite (sorry, couldn’t resist) is apparently “in talks” for the Cate Shortland-directed film.

Black Widow will be only the second female solo superhero film from Marvel Studios. The first, Captain Marvel, just passed the $1 billion box office milestone earlier this week.

Scarlett Johansson is expected to return to the title role of Natasha Romanoff, former Soviet spy and key member of the Avengers.

We’ll let you know if this latest casting rumor gets confirmed/denied by Disney and Marvel Studios.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.


Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence.

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
