While things might look bad in Avengers: Endgame, there will be life afterward for the character of Black Widow who will make another appearance in her own film. News about the forthcoming movie has been trickling in over the past few months. While things were looking good, Marvel Studios decided to shake things up.

A Brand New Script

It has been revealed that Marvel Studios has hired Ned Benson to rewrite the film’s script. The original script was written by Jac Schaeffer, who co-wrote Captain Marvel. Fortunately, this won’t be the end of Schaeffer’s relationship with Marvel. She’ll be the showrunner for The Vision and Scarlet Witch, which will be released on Disney+.

Benson is best known for his film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. Split into three parts, the film appeared at the Toronto International Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival.

So Many Dollar Signs

For this movie, Scarlett Johansson is slated to make a $15 million payday. For years, Johansson and other Marvel actors signed smaller contracts when they started out. The most noticeable example is Robert Downey Jr., who earned $500,000 for 2008’s Iron Man.

Johansson’s stock as an actress grew tremendously following her MCU debut in 2010’s Iron Man 2. Her work in Her and Under The Skin earned numerous accolades. The actress also gained critical acclaim for her theater debut in A View from the Bridge. Her performance landed her a Tony Award and a Theatre World Award.

Journey To The Past

The forthcoming Black Widow film takes place before 2012’s The Avengers. With this time frame, it’s hard to tell if Black Widow will appear in any post-Endgame movies. Directed by Cate Shortland, the Black Widow movie will appear in Phase Four of the MCU.

For Johansson, she’ll be busy for the next year with Jojo Rabbit and a forthcoming Noah Baumbach film. She’ll also executive produce a miniseries based on the 1913 novel The Custom of the Country.
