Filming On Marvel's Black Widow Movie To Start This Month

Filming On Marvel's Black Widow Movie To Start This Month

The new Avengers movie hasn't even been released yet but another superhero blockbuster could be hitting our screens pretty soon.

There isn't long to go until Avengers: Endgame lands in cinemas across the UK but one of the film's heroes, Black Widow, is heading out on her own with a feature-length spin-off.


According to reports, work on the self-titled blockbuster is set to start in the UK later this month and will be wrapped up by the start of summer.

The studio had obviously been pretty tight-lipped on the storyline and potential release dates, however we do know it will be directed by Cate Shortland, with the screenplay written by Jac Schaeffer.

And though not much is known about the cast, Scarlett Johansson will obviously be donning the jumpsuit once again to play the lead role.

As well as being aimed at longtime followers of the Marvel comics, so far the studio's films have been tailored towards a younger audience, but reports suggest this could all be about to change with Black Widow potentially being the studio's first R-rated (15) movie.

Production Weekly has claimed principal photography will start later this month and the movie could be finished by the end of May and has even given what they think to be the synopsis, which says: "At birth the Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanova) is given to the KGB, which grooms her to become its ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her as the action moves to present-day New York, where she is a freelance operative."

If that wasn't good enough, directors of the Avengers series, the Russo Brothers, revealed last last month that the final installment will be released a whole day earlier than expected.

The duo announced the good news on their Twitter account, with a short video revealing fans had just 100 days left to wait, which means the saga will reach its finale on April 25 and not 26, as had been believed.


So that means there are just 83 days to go, and as you'd expect, the news just got fans more riled up.

One person wrote: "This is like: too long to wait and also not long enough to get ready."

A second fan said: "What you need to do is not release anymore trailer."

While another fan wrote wishfully: "Any chance we could see it sooner?"

Worth asking, I guess.
