The worst kept secret in Marvel Studios history has now been made official: a Black Widow movie is coming, and it'll hit theaters in May 2020.

Black Widow will return. Among the film's co-stars: Florence Pugh (Midsommar), Rachel Weisz (The Favourite), Ray Winstone (The Departed), David Harbour (Stranger Things), and O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid's Tale). Cate Shortland is the director, and this will be her first time directing a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.

A double agent with a morally compromised background, Johansson's Black Widow made her first Marvel Cinematic Universe appearance in 2010's Iron Man 2 and featured heavily in numerous biggest Marvel movies since, including all the Avengers films and multiple Captain America offerings. "I get to play her as a fully realized woman in all of her many facets".

They encourage criminal behavior and can be abused to spy on their victims by employers, stalkers or abusive associates. It's hard to discern whether your gadget has stalkerware installed on it as you won't see an app symbol on your phone .

Black Widow fans will have to wait a little longer to get more precise details on the movie, and while Marvel shared a clip during comic-con, viewers at home will have to wait a little longer to see Romanoff in action. "In this film we get to understand her past and put the pieces of herself together and come out a whole person".

In the wake of Avengers: Endgame a Black Widow film was widely expected but never officially confirmed by Marvel, despite frequent hints and reports and even some set photos that suggested Johansson was not yet done with the role.
