Marvel is keeping the ball rolling with Black Widow!

Marvel President Kevin Feige reportedly met with several candidates before tapping Jac, and Scarlett met with Marvel executives to discuss what they wanted from a writer.

Jac first broke out with her script for The Shower, which attracted Anne Hathaway to attach herself to the project and elist Jac to write the upcoming Nasty Women.

Scarlett has played the character of Black Widow in six films thus far.
