Black Widow. Marvel. Marvel Studios. Scarlett Johansson. Avengers.

Latino Review has released an interview with David Hayter about the rumored Black Widow film he’s working on according to IMDB. He sets the record straight:

For ‘Black Widow,’ I wrote [a script] ten years ago and I was attached to direct it then. Then a few female action movies came out and they didn’t do very well. And the movie got shelved. It’s on IMDB and I’m going to talk to Marvel about possibly re-igniting that project. It really depends on Marvel on what they want to do with that character. So that’s the status of that right now.

[So] as far as I know, it’s not a project that’s happening yet. But, I have written a script for it.

I loved X-Men and X-2. I thought Scorpion King was a fun film and Watchmen was a great adaptation (although very dark for my taste). I want this Black Widow film to be a reality so that there’s at least ONE female led film from Marvel. COME ON, MARVEL. You have many films under your belt so this shouldn’t be taking so long.
