Although Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce a Black Widow film, production on the long-awaited feature is expected to kick off next month. Collider reported that Marvel was impressed by Benson through his work in his Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby films, titled Him, Her, and Them, which follows the story of a married couple (played by James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain) whose stories are seen from their own separate perspectives.
Marvel's Black Widow movie, which hasn't even been announced or confirmed yet, continues to add to its cast.

Black Widow's death gets even grosser when you take into account Marvel's terrible track record with women characters more generally.
Predictions regarding the future of the MCU often cited Johansson's character as the most likely to lead the team post-Endgame, and the announcement of a Hawkeye television series focusing on him training his protege only seemed to increase the likelihood of a Black Widow-led Avengers.

Marvel is taking nearly a year-long break after Avengers: Endgame comes out in April, and Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out in July. Regardless, considering all the upset Ivan caused Black Widow in the comics, it probably won't be a happy tale. The Widow guest-starred in issues of Solo Avengers, Force Works , Iron Man, Marvel Team-Up , and other comics.
