"I'm looking forward to exploring her as a fully realized woman in all of her many facets", Johansson said on stage.

Elsewhere, Marvel President Kevin Feige has confirmed plans for a Fantastic Four reboot.

Penned by Jac Schaeffer, who's also writing the story behind the upcoming Disney+ series about Vision and Scarlet Witch, Black Widow is a prequel story for the titular character. Word about a Black Widow standalone movie started as soon as Avengers: Endgame's release date neared. Knowing this movie had been rumored for quite some time, her selfless act was a bit of a head-scratcher.

During their presentation at Hall H, Marvel did showcase yet unreleased footage from the movie, purportedly including a scene where Black Widow has a heated confrontation with Yelena Belova, portrayed by actress Florence Pugh.

Hot on the heels of the news that Natasha Romanoff will be going up against the Taskmaster in her first solo outing is the revelation that we'll finally figure out what happened in Budapest. In the film, she and Hawkeye traveled to Vormir to acquire the Soul Infinity Stone, which requires a death in order to be summoned. A KGB agent and assassin, Melina was pretty miffed that all her stellar kills were always overshadowed by Natasha's, so she was more than willing to kill her. Natasha was easily able to deal with the other mercenaries, but struggled to defeat Melina and her impenetrable suit.

Black Widow is set hit theaters May 1, 2020.
