Lore director Cate Shortland was hired to direct Black Widow back in July 2018, based on a script by Jac Schaeffer. Benson will reportedly be working off of Schaeffer's last draft, however Collider said "there was a fairly specific reason that Marvel looked at Benson for the new draft" without going into further detail.

Black Widow was previously reported to be set before the events of 2012's The Avengers.

Marvel has not set a release date for the film.
