Work on the upcoming Black Widow movie appears to be picking up speed. We know the movie has a writer working on it, and now the director search for Natasha’s solo outing is well underway.
Last week word came out of several women directors that Marvel has met with about the movie, but that appears to be just the tip of the iceberg. According to Justin Kroll of Variety, the actual number of people Marvel has met with to direct Black Widow is more than sixty-five!
Fun fact: More then 65 directors have met for the BLACK WIDOW job. Marvel being extremely thorough on this one

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 most likely arriving in the May 2020 release date Marvel has staked out, chances are that July 2020 date is for Black Widow based on how quickly things are moving with it.
