Black Widow is getting her own MCU movie, here’s what we know about it

Black Widow release date

Marvel has not set a release date for the Black Widow movie. That’s not a surprise. It has not set a release date for any Marvel movie coming out after 2019. That was likely to put all of its focus on Avengers: Endgame and not spoil the future of the MCU.

With that out of the way, when can we expect the Black Widow movie? Possibly 2020, but 2021 makes the most sense. Marvel president Kevin Feige has been busy setting up the cast for the movie, but it has yet to enter production. In fact, there’s no word on if it’ll enter production in 2019 at all.

That isn’t set in stone as we’re still only in April, so there’s plenty of time for Marvel to clear up its roadmap, especially now the Avengers: Endgame is in theaters, and gets busy making movies. For the time being, expect Black Widow in 2020 or 2021.

Black Widow cast

Black Widow will be led by Scarlett Johansson playing the titular role of Black Widow, also known as Natasha Romanoff. But she won’t be alone. In April 2019, it was confirmed that Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz and Stranger Things’ David Harbour were in talks to join the project.

From early talks, the deal wasn’t done yet, but the two sides were close to reaching an agreement. Besides those three, actress Florence Pugh has also joined the cast to play an unspecified. Those are all the actors we know will be in the project that we know of, however, don’t be surprise if current MCU actors also join the fray at some point.

  • Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff
  • Rachel Weisz in unspecified role
  • David Harbour in unspecified role
  • Florence Pugh in unspecified role

Cate Shortland will take up directorial duties. This will mark the second time a female director leads an MCU movie after Anna Boden co-directed Captain Marvel. Shortland is best known for directing indie films Lore and The Silence. Ned Benson and Jac Schaeffer will pen the script.
