Marvel fans have been clamoring for a solo film for the reformed Russian spy for years after Johannson made her debut in 2010’s Iron Man 2. The shouts only became louder after Wonder Woman exploded onto the scene in 2017 beating Marvel to a female-led superhero film. The character has come a long way from her erst-while Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) Girl Friday. The Widow is now a key member of the Avengers as she checks the egos of both Tony (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Steve (Chris Evans). Her solo film may be an opportunity to explore the character’s independence without having to reflect or react to a male protagonist.

One has to wonder just where her solo film will take her considering the Earth-shattering events that are likely to happen in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

Marvel is not currently commenting on the story, but questions will certainly abound int he next couple of week when press starts for Marvel’s Black Panther.
