Film fans have been awaiting the character's solo outing since her first appearance in 2010.
Popular Marvel character Black Widow is finally being treated to her own film with a writer officially in place. According to Variety, the studio has pulled in Jac Schaeffer to write the currently untitled film.
Marvel fans have long questioned why the character - played by Scarlett Johansson - hasn't been handed her own film despite appearing in five previous films including Iron Man 2, Avengers Assemble and Captain America: Civil War. She'll next be seen in Avengers: Infinity War released in Ireland this May 4.
Should Black Widow - real name Natasha Romanoff - make it to production, it's likely it'll arrive beyond its next phase which looks to be kickstarted by Black Panther next February.
