Confirmed: Cate Shortland to Direct Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’

… and it’s a prequel.

It’ll be interesting to see how Shortland handles working within the studio system and having so many handlers that will all be looking at her to deliver the Marvel version of Wonder Woman.

It’ll also be interesting how Shortland works within a fantasy framework including comedy, a genre she’s never worked in before..

Wild card entrants always surprise, so, Shortland, do us proud!
