Marvel’s standalone Black Widow movie is in the works and it seems that they’re being pretty methodical when it comes to choosing a director for the film.
According to reports, Marvel is considering over 65 possible directors for the project.
He wrote on Twitter: “Fun fact: More than 65 directors have met for the BLACK WIDOW job. Marvel being extremely thorough on this one.”
Although a director is yet to be announced, British helmer Amma Asante (Belle, A United Kingdom) and Chloe Zhao (The Rider) are believed to be among the leading names in contention for the role.
Earlier this year, it was announced that writer Jac Shaeffer had been hired for script development on the project.
It’s yet to be revealed if the project will act as an origins story that traces the roots of Natasha Romanoff, or if it’ll instead focus on her next move after the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
