So, the Black Widow movie will NOT be r-rated, says Kevin Feige

So… the Black Widow movie.

You may recall there’s been talk that the upcoming Black Widow movie starring Scarlett Johansson might be an r-rated adventure (we speculated here that while we weren’t convinced it could open new avenues for the MCU).

Well, the big man on campus at Marvel/Disnet, Kevin Feige has laid that talk to rest.

Recently asked if the rumours of it being a more adult outing for the character could be finally laid to rest, Feige replied: “Yes. Correct.

“It never was going to be,” he added.

“Somebody writes, ‘I hear it’s R-rated!’ And then everybody writes it up.”

The movie will see Johansson return as the character and is expected to be directed by Cate Shortland on a script from Jac Schaeffer – although we’re hearing the script is being extensively rewritten as we speak, with many – prior to this new report – believing it was to get rid of the adult material included in the script.

Whatever the case, we can expect to see her appear solo in 2020 at some point.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
