Marvel is moving forward with a Black Widow solo movie, hiring Jac Schaeffer to screenwrite, despite the movie not being officially greenlit. The film is very early in development, so the hiring of a writer is a good sign for the future of the movie. 

Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several writers before going with Schaeffer and execs met with Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson to see what they wanted from a Black Widow movie.

Schaeffer broke out with her Black List script The Shower, which led to Anne Hathaway to hire her for Nasty Women, a female-centric take on Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
