Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ Movie Lands Director Cate Shortland

Cate Shortland Will Direct the Black Widow Movie

Marvel Studios is moving ahead with the Black Widow movie as it has found a director with Cate Shortland.

Shortland won the gig from a field of 49 candidates including Amma Asante (Belle), Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry) and Maggie Betts (Novitiate), according to Deadline.

Shortland, who has been regarded as the frontrunner to direct the film, is best known for directing Berlin Syndrome and Lore.

The Berlin Syndrome director's appointment comes after a six-month search that reportedly canvassed over 70 possible directors, with a preference for female filmmakers. Johansson reportedly sparked to how Shortland handled the female lead of Lore.

Twitter CEO loses 200,000 followers in fake account purge
He lost just 326,118 followers on Thursday, the day before most accounts saw a drop, and on Friday he regained 5,339 followers. The social-media company warned on Wednesday that its crackdown on fake accounts means users will have fewer followers.

It's a big risk for Marvel, as Australian Shortland only has nine director credits to her name - and only four are full-length features. The film reunites Johansson with her Ghost in the Shell director Rupert Sanders. The Black Widow screenplay will be written by Jac Schaeffer, who most recently authored the script for Nasty Women, the gender-swapped remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Johansson is poised to reprise the role of the Black Widow for the much-anticipated standalone movie, and the 33-year-old has previously spoken enthusiastically about the prospect of Black Widow being handed her own film. Widow, along with all of the core Avengers (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America and presumably Hawkeye) survived the events of that film and are all expected to be seen in next summer's still-untitled Avengers 4.
