Pro: They've actually developed several 'Black Widow' scripts already
David Hayter's script, subtitled "A Marvel Spy Movie," delved into the background of the character, and that seems like a natural choice. One of the best things about the way they've handled Natasha so far is that they've hinted at a troubled past, but they've never completely explained it. There's plenty of material to deal with, and Marvel's obviously interested. The fact that they've spent the time and money to develop drafts of the script indicates that they think this is a character worth exploring more completely, and it's probably only a matter of time until they end up with a script that makes them finally pull the trigger.
