While actress Scarlett Johansson isn't having the best time in terms of public relations at the moment, Marvel Studios is doing a little better now that they have settled on a director for the long overdue Black Widow standalone film. Johansson was particularly impressed with the director's handling of the female protagonist, reports said. The character has a tortured past, she's had to make a lot of hard decisions. It was a critical success, winning a record 13 Australian Film Industry awards that year.

The star loved Shortland's 2012 drama Lore so much she personally recommended Shortland be at the helm for Black Widow.

Shortland is an Australian director best known for features like Lore and Berlin Syndrome, but Black Widow marks her biggest project to date by far. Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok was widely praised, particularly for its distinctly Waititi-style humour.




The Black Widow movie will be set before the events of the first Avengers film and will be Marvel's second female superhero film after Captain Marvel, which is scheduled to be released in the United States of America on March 8, 2019.

Johansson made her debut as the character in 2010's Iron Man 2 and has appeared in multiple other Marvel Studios movies including Captain America: The WInter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and both of the Avengers movies.

Screenwriter Jac Schaeffer - now working on a forthcoming female-centric reimagining of Dirty Rotten Scoundels, starring Anne Hathaway - is behind the script.
