Since Black Widow’s debut in the MCU, fans have been vehemently campaigning for her to get her own movie. Captain Marvel is set to be the first solo superhero movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however recent reports have claimed that Natasha Romanoff may get her moment after all.

A few months ago, Marvel assigned a writer to the project, and now, buried in The Hollywood Reporter’s news about Star Trek’s new female director, are a couple of lines which explain that Marvel’s search for a director for Black Widow has been going on for some time:

“Marvel Studios has been looking for a director to break its glass ceiling with Black Widow and has been meeting with filmmakers such as Deniz Gamze Erguven (the Turkish movie Mustang), Chloe Zhao (The Rider) and Amma Asante (A United Kingdom), among several others. That search is still ongoing, according to sources.”

When Borys Kit, author of the THR article, tweeted the information on Thursday, Variety’s Justin Kroll added that Maggie Betts (Novitiate) and Angela Robinson (Professor Marston and the Wonder Women) are also rumoured to have had meetings with the studio.

Most of these directors have out themselves on the map with their most recent projects, from the past couple of years, indicating that Black Widow is a relatively new plan for Marvel Studios. It looks as though the project has a better chance than ever of coming to fruition, and with talent like this on the table, there’s only more reason to get excited.
