Marvel's 'Black Widow' reportedly filming February

Neither Disney nor Marvel have yet to confirm the news

::Update 1/23/19 - Production Weekly has reported February 28 production date shooting in Miami and Croatia::

With an expected May 2020 release date on the horizon, a new report out of the Geeks World Wide and Omega Underground confirm 'Black Widow' will reportedly begin filming February 28.

Insiders say Scarlett Johansson's solo project is now Marvel's top priority after failing to secure James Gunn's replacement for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Marvel has been quietly pushing ahead with the long-talked about standalone dating back to 2010. Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland will direct from a script written by Jac Shaeffer. Marvel’s second female-led film will reportedly take place two years before the timelines in Iron Man (2008), and fifteen years after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Johansson, who made her debut as Natasha Romanoff in 2010’s Iron Man 2, was reportedly earning a low seven figure payday for her work in previous MCU installments. Now, the 33-year-old has earned a well-deserved $15 million dollar payday, equaling the salaries of fellow Avengers co-stars, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, and exceeding Chadwick Boseman's seven figure salary as well as Brie Larson's $5 million dollar salary.

If indeed production is slated for next month, we should expect to hear casting news fairly soon. Hopefully we’ll get some clarity from a Disney or Marvel source.
