Black Widow adds Mission: Impossible – Fallout cinematographer


While Marvel Studios has not officially confirmed a Black Widow film, Marvel has already begun working through the development phase for the next spinoff film.

It’s been announced that Marvel has tapped Mission Impossible: Fallout cinematographer Rob Hardy for the upcoming MCU spinoff, Black Widow. The solo film for Black Widow, starring Scarlett Johansson, has been a long time coming and fans have been begging Marvel for a standalone film for the Black Widow. If it all works out, this will become the second female-led solo film for Marvel.

The development phase for Black Widow gained speed this year when Marvel tapped Jac Schaeffer to write the script and picked Cate Shortland for director of the solo film. Shortland becomes the first solo female director in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Black Widow is now in the casting stage. Filming is expected to start summer 2019.

Rob Hardy has previously done cinematography work on Annihilation and Ex Machina. This will be his first film with Disney/Marvel Studios. Are you a fan of his work?

]Before hiring Hardy, Marvel picked up a production designer in May.  Marvel usually relies on people familiar with the Studio’s work and the various departments. For now, Marvel Studios has been hiring outsiders.The hiring of Hardy is a great decision by Marvel Studios, especially after witnessing his work on Fallout.

While no plot details have been released (or even official confirmation for the movie) it’s reasonable to expect plenty of action. It’s hopeful that Hardy can expand those fight scenes as well as the action.

Since Black Widow is a Russian spy who is an expert in hand to hand combat, Marvel Studios shouldn’t have to use too much CGI for the action. With Hardy on board, I believe Black Widow will be an amazing film when it comes to the cinematography.
