BLACK WIDOW Is Reportedly Being Developed As Marvel Studios' First R-Rated Release

This may sound like a complete fabrication, but a reliable source has indicated that Marvel Studios is developing the solo Black Widow movie as its first R-rated property. Find out more after the jump...

Could Black Widow be the first R-rated Marvel Studios film? As far-fetched as it sounds, that's the rumor that's been picking up steam online over the weekend.

Crazy Days and Nights is a somewhat notorious Hollywood gossip site, but it has been known to share some solid movie scoops in the past, and its latest "Blind Item" reveal suggests that Marvel is indeed setting up Natasha Romanov's first solo outing as a more adult oriented feature.

Kevin Feige has shot down the notion of an R-rated MCU adventure in the past, but if this was something the studio wanted to explore after the success of Deadpool, for example, Black Widow would certainly be a fitting character to test the waters with - especially since her solo movie is expected to be an origin tale which could potentially go to some pretty dark places.

This is most definitely just a rumor for now, but let us know what you think about the prospect of an R-rated Black Widow movie in the comments.

Black Widow doesn't have an offcial release date, but it is expected to commence production this year. Cate Shortland directs, with Scarlett Johansson confirmed to return as the lethal Avenger.
