The selection of a director is another step towards finalizing the long-awaited Black Widow film

Marvel Studios has finally found a director for the standalone “Black Widow” movie, starring Scarlet Johansson as Natasha Romanoff alias Black Widow. The studio hired Australian director Cate Shorthand to direct the upcoming superhero film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). 

Cate, who is best known for her female-led movies “Lore” and “Berlin Syndrome”, landed the job, after competing with 70 other directors. Marvel has met with “70 or 75 directors in order to find its ideal candidate”, reports the Hollywood Reporter. 

Black Widow script is also penned by a female scriptwriter and producer Jac Schaeffer.  

The film will tell the story of Natasha Romanoff, a Russian spy who switches sides to become a superhero, well before the events that take place during the first Avengers movie. The character was introduced to the MCU in “Iron Man 2” and the character appeared in several Marvel movies since then. 

The long due Black Widow movie is finally in the works.   However, no release date of the film has been announced. The movie will be Marvel’s second female-led film after Captain Marvel.
