Fans clamoring for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow to get her own movie may be in luck. "Avengers: Infinity War" co-star Chris Evans seemingly let the news slip that Marvel is developing a Black Widow spinoff movie.

Evans recently spoke to ET Canada about the massive success of "Black Panther," saying "There's nothing [Marvel Studios] can't do, man. And I'm sure it's going to have the exact same effect when "Captain Marvel" comes out, and then the Black Widow movie comes out. Marvel just has the winning recipe."

That would seem to suggest that Marvel is actively moving forward with a Black Widow movie in the aftermath of 2019's "Avengers 4." Marvel currently has three unspecified films scheduled for release in 2020, one of which is expected to be "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3." Will Black Widow claim one of the other dates?

It's possible that Evans is merely assuming, as many fans are, that Black Widow is next in line for a solo spinoff. However, this gels with a recent report that a Black Widow movie is in the early stages of development and has hired Jac Schaeffer to pen the screenplay.

We'll next see Johansson's Widow and Evans' Captain America when "Avengers: Infinity War" hits theaters on May 4.
