With Avengers: Endgame looming over the heads of Marvel fans like a black cloud, Marvel Studios has been able to shine some light on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the trailer of Spider-Man: Far From Home, which will be out in July.
But between the uncertainty of which actors would be sticking around following the fourth Avengers film along with the delay of Guardians of Galaxy, Vol. 3, fans have been eager to see which MCU film would step up and get the wheels moving for Phase 4.
Well, as first reported by Omega Underground, that film will be Black Widow. The cameras will begin to roll on the solo adventure, that will star Scarlett Johansson in the titular role, the end of next month. February 28th to be exact. Previous reports have the production crew beginning work in Croatia and Miami and will run through March.
With Cate Shortland in the director’s chair and a screenplay written by Jac Schaeffer, Black Widow is rumored to take place in a pre-Iron Man MCU and will detail Natasha Romanoff’s struggles as a spy in Russia.
While there is no release date confirmed for the film, expect it to be around May 2020, the original release date for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3.
