  • Cate Shortland Will Direct the Black Widow Movie

The report of Shortland's hiring closes the book on a director search that took up half of a year and involved more than 70 directors, with the producers at Marvel being extremely diligent in searching for the right director for the film.

Cate Shortland has been hired to direct Marvel Studios' Black Widowfilm, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Australian director made her name with her incredible 2004 debut Summersault, and her most recent movie - kidnap thriller Berlin Syndrome - was one of our hidden gems of 2017.

"Some of the names considered to helm "Black Widow" were Amma Asante ("Belle, A United Kingdom"), Maggie Betts (Novitiate"), Melanie Laurent ("Galveston") and Kimberly Pierce ("Boys Don't Cry").

Johansson reportedly admired Shortland's work with Saskia Rosendahl as the lead in the WWII drama Lore. She is the second female director in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU) roster, following Captain Marvel co-director Anna Boden.

Scarlett Johansson reprises her Avengers role of Natasha Romanoff in the upcoming Black Widow movie.

Shortland first became known to Australian audiences in 2004 with her independent feature film Somersault, starring Abbie Cornish and Sam Worthington. 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. This project has been a long time coming, as fans have been clamoring for a Black Widow movie ever since the character was introduced in Iron Man 2.
