Cate Shortland Will Direct the Black Widow Movie!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Australian director Cate Shortland was selected by the superhero studio from a pool of over 70 directors, most of whom interviewed with Marvel President and CEO Kevin Feige, Johansson and other studio executives. Marvel had no comment. Of course that's pretty much the Marvel way. Shane Black had only directed one movie, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, before helming Iron Man 3, and Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor made his feature debut on that sequel after directing standout episodes of television.

The long process to find a Black Widow director was apparently close to concluding in June, when Amma Asante (Belle, A United Kingdom) and Maggie Betts (Novitiate) were reportedly high up on a list of finalists that also included Melanie Laurent (Galveston) and Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry).

Shortland's hiring caps off months of searching that saw Marvel reportedly meet with as many as 75 different filmmakers for the project.

"Shortland, who hails from Australia and does not have agency representation, had a fan in Johansson, who pushed for the helmer".

Plot details are being kept under wraps, including whether the film will be an origin tale or set after the next "Avengers" movie.

Shortland's past credits include "Lore" and "The Berlin Syndrome", both of which featured female leads, another big selling point for Marvel and Johansson.
