We just left the press conference for Iron Man 2 in Beverly Hills, Calif., about which we'll be posting more in days ahead, but one tidbit of info that came out of it was confirmation that Marvel Studios would love to do a spinoff movie centering on Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow character.

"Definitely possible," said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige in response to the question. "Yes, absolutely."

Johansson's character debuts in Iron Man 2 and nearly steals the show from Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow in a couple of scenes while showing off her impressive martial-arts skills in others. And she also happens to look fabulous in a black catsuit.

Read more about it in coming days. Iron Man 2 opens May 7.
