While she won’t be the first female Marvel superhero to have her name in the title of a movie (the third actually, behind Wasp and soon Captain Marvel), Black Widow will be getting her own film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Black Widow solo film now has a director, in Austalian filmmaker, Cate Shortland. Not long ago, Shortland was rumored to be up for the position, but now it has been confirmed she will helm the Black Widow solo film. Shortland’s previous works include 2012’s Lore and 2017’s Berlin Syndrome.

While not a lot is known about the film itself, the word is that it will be a prequel set before the films in Marvel Phase 1, and show the early days of Natasha Romanoff, but that is just pure hearsay at this time. The film still doesn’t have a release or start date. Even though she is without usual fare of super abilities heroes usually have, such as super strength or speed, she is an expert marksman and a highly skilled martial artist and secret agent. Black Widow is a key member of the Avengers and her character is deserving of her own film.
