AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton).

The pair are then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES).

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police.

When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

Well, we know at least one Marvel superhero who is surviving Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

After years of mumbling and shuffling their feet every time the prospect of a Black Widow movie was raised, it would seem that Marvel Studios has seen the light. More likely, they have seen the stellar box office numbers and critical acclaim that were heaped on Wonder Woman, the first female superhero to headline her own movie, and steered to success by a female director.

The arrival of Wonder Woman on the big screen was at least 30 years overdue, but the fact that we’ve had Scarlett Johansson kicking ass as Black Widow for nearly a decade (in six films across three different franchises) on screen with no solo movie to call her own has always seemed a little weird. The studio will have its first female-led superhero movie in March 2019 with the release of Captain Marvel, which has the directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck working from a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet.

But that’s all about to change, because we might actually get a Black Widow movie.

Variety now reports that a Black Widow movie is now in “very early development” at Marvel Studios, and there has been no formal greenlight for the project. But they have hired a writer for it. Jac Schaeffer, who is currently working on Nasty Women, the next remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which will star Anne Hathaway. Perhaps Marvel will find a woman for the director’s chair. Scarlett Johannson apparently had some input in the selection of Schaeffer, as Variety says that “Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a Black Widow writer.” That can only be good news about how seriously they’re taking this.

Hopefully, Black Widow will be heavy on the espionage and hard action and easy on the pure superheroics. This is a perfect opportunity for Marvel Studios to play with genres other than strict superheroics, much like they did with space opera/light comedy in Guardians Of The Galaxy.

That “very early development” part and the fact that there’s no actual greenlight both mean you shouldn’t be holding your breath on this one just yet. We’ll keep you posted, though…
