The upcoming Black Widow Marvel film which will star Scarlett Johansson as the feisty, bad-ass assassin, has recently hired Ned Benson to rewrite the script for the film.
When the film was first announced, Jac Schaeffer was hired to write the script for Black Widow. Unknown as to why there has been a change in writers, or even if there is much to rewrite, we’re sure that there is good reason.
Making this female lead superhero film is incredibly important, especially with it being the second since its inception (the first being the new Captain Marvel film starring Brie Larson).
ScreenRant: “Benson most recently wrote and directed the Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby trilogy, which is the work that reportedly impressed Marvel executives enough to get him this job”.
This is nothing to panic over, though. It is a necessary step, and it happens a lot more often than you think. Superhero movies alike have had a few rewrites, due to the amount of detail and layers it explores rather than just being a straightforward story. They have to take into account backstories, intertwining stories and future stories too.
Making the female lead superhero film perfect is nothing less than expected, so it’s definitely on our watch list.
