The film will be directed by Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland, best known for Lore, a World War II drama. Shortland will become the studio's first female director to helm a standalone film. Black Widow also features Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, and OT Fagbenle in pivotal roles. There are also rumours that Black Widow will be set 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, with Romanoff having now made the US her home. This would place the events somewhere in mid-2000s. "This film has been wanted by fans for such a long time and I think it's well needed. So I feel like it's only got support and love. And that's a very exciting thing," Pugh had told The Telegraph in an interview about joining Black Widow.  The makers also released unseen footage at the San Diego Comic-Con in July this year. “I’m looking forward to exploring her as a fully realised woman in all of her many facets,” Johansson said about playing Natasha Romanoff at the Comic-Con panel, according to Variety.
