Scarlett Johansson`s Black Widow to become solo film

New York: Scarlett Johansson will star as the leather clad `Black Widow` in a new superhero flick which will revolve around the Russian vamp.

Marvel chiefs are planning to give the 26-year-old a solo shot in a superheroine movie, reported Huffington Post.

Marvel Film`s co-head Kevin Feige said that they`ve spoken to Johannson about her own starring vehicle about the Soviet-born villain-turned-hero.

"There`s no definitive plans, but we have started talking and talking with Scarlett about what a Widow movie could be," he said.

Hollywood has made major bucks on its comic book adaptations, but the few efforts they`ve made to headline a woman hero have been abysmal failures.

Halle Berry`s `Catwoman` got scathing reviews and Jennifer Garner`s Elektra was without spark.

Johansson, who stars as Black Widow, first appeared on film in the black leather in `Iron Man 2` and now, alongside up with Chris Evans` Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson`s Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo`s The Hulk, Jeremy Renner`s Hawkeye and Robert Downey Jr`s Iron Man, she`ll help form `The Avengers` in the upcoming big screen epic due out next year.
