      David Harbour Joins Marvel's Black Widow Cast; Rachel Weisz in Talks



      Stranger Things actor David Harbour has joined the cast of Marvel's Black Widow. Aside from Clint Barton, Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff is the only member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's original Avengers teamthat hasn't gotten a solo adventure of their own yet. (Well, okay, technically Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner hasn't either.) Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has talked about making a Black Widow movie many times over the years, but an actual film has yet to happen.
      However, that's about to change, now that Phase 4 of the MCU is starting to come together. Johansson is set to reprise her role as the KGB spy-assassin turned S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in a Black Widow solo adventure, which is currently in pre-production. There's a lot that's unknown about the movie at the moment, including where it takes place in the MCU timeline and how - if at all - its story will be impacted by Phase 3's conclusion, Avengers: Endgame. Nevertheless, with a June production start date being targeted, the film's cast is beginning to come together now.



      THR reports that Harbour has joined Johansson and Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family) in the Black Widow cast. Meanwhile, in a separate write-up,Variety revealed that Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz has entered talks to play a role in the film. Details beyond that are being kept firmly under-wraps for the time being.





      Harbour, for his part, has quickly gone from being a respected character actor to an in-demand star, thanks to his ongoing role as the loveably grouchy Chief Jim Hopper on Netflix's Stranger Things. The actor has played supporting roles in comic book movies past (namely, Suicide Squad), but will make the jump to leading man with his turn in this month's Hellboy movie reboot, ahead of Stranger Things 3's premiere in early July. Weisz, meanwhile, is coming off a fresh Oscar nomination for her performance in Yorgos Lanthimos' acclaimed Queen Ann memoir The Favourite. She's actually the latest Academy favorite to circle an upcoming role in the MCU, following on the heels of Angelina Jolie entering talks for The Eternals last week.


      It's fitting that The Eternals and Black Widow are attracting the cream of the crop when it comes to actresses. Both films are being directed by celebrated female directors in the forms of
      Chloé Zhao (The Rider) and Cate Shortland (Lore), respectively, and have the potential to reach new heights of creative achievement for the MCU brand at large. They're also worlds apart in terms of genre; The Eternals is expected to be a cosmic soap opera, whereas Black Widow should play out more like an assassin thriller in the vein of the Jason Bourne movies. That'll be all the more important moving forward, as the MCU leaves the Infinity Saga behind for different pastures.

      Marvel Studios' Black Widow Casts Ray Winstone



      Ray Winstone is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a cast member for Black Widow. After years of requests, Marvel Studios is finally giving Scarlett Johansson a solo movie. She made her debut as Natasha Romanoff in Iron Man 2 and quickly turned the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent into a fan-favorite character. This continued all the way through Avengers: Endgame, which is why her death in that movie hit other heroes and audiences hard. Thankfully, that won't be the end of her story, in a way.
      Because of her Avengers: Endgame fate, Black Widow is expected to be a prequel movie for the MCU. The film, which has yet to be officially announced by Marvel, is directed by Cate Shortland. Johansson is the unquestioned star of Black Widow, but Marvel has put a great supporting cast around her that includes Florence Pugh, Rachel Weitz, and David Harbour. Now, they've added another veteran of Hollywood to the cast.



      According to Variety, Ray Winstone has joined the cast of Black Widow. With his casting and all other Black Widow details unconfirmed by Marvel, there are no details on who he is playing at this time. Winstone's last few forays into blockbuster movies include the Point Break remake, Darren Aronofsky's Noah, and Snow White and the Huntsman. He also had a prominent role in The Departed in 2006.




      Even though this report does not share details on who Winstone will be playing, previously revealed character breakdowns could offer some insight into his role. One role that Marvel was looking to fill was that of a European Caucasian male who was roughly 50-60 years old. The UK born 62-year-old actor is a fit on paper. Unfortunately, that is all of the information that the breakdown provided. The role is expected to be a supporting one, but it could've also changed as a result of the late rewrites done by Ned Benson.


      The timing of Winstone's casting should mean that he may not wait long to begin filming if he hasn't already.
      Production is currently underway, so he could report to set any day now to begin working on Black Widow. At this point, any possible details about his role or the film as a whole will likely not arrive until San Diego Comic-Con, where Marvel Studios is reportedly set to have a panel. This is where they could confirm character details, when the film takes place, and what the plot is. Until then, we could hear about a few other Black Widow casting developments soon.

      Black Widow Movie Villain Confirmed As Taskmaster



      Footage shown at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 revealed a fan-favorite comic book villain, Taskmaster. With the Black Widow solo movie fast approaching its May 1, 2020 release date, details are finally starting to trickle in regarding the long-in-development Scarlett Johansson vehicle.
      After years of rumors, months of casting, and filming news, SDCC 2019 marked the formal unveiling of Black Widow, with a sizzle reel of exciting footage showcasing tons of action, story, and the surprise appearance of one of the most dangerous mercenaries in comic book history: Taskmaster.



      Near the end of the extensive footage shown to Hall H attendees, the iconic villain revealed himself, a striking silhouette emerging from a wall of fire to show his skull-masked visage to Black Widow before engaging the super spy in a one-on-one battle. Though the footage stopped short of revealing the identity of the actor playing Taskmaster, it certainly seems as though he'll be one of the main antagonists - if not the big bad himself - in the hotly anticipated film.




      While Taskmaster is relatively unknown to the mainstream MCU audience, comic book fans are surely familiar with the character. He infamously possesses the superpower of "photographic reflexes." This allows him to effortlessly copy any combat moves, as long as he sees them once. This uncanny ability allows him to match blows with even the most skilled hand-to-hand fighters from across the Marvel Universe. Indeed, the footage shown at SDCC features Taskmaster perfectly parrying every attack the red-haired agent throws his way, indicating his unique ability will make an appearance in the movie.


      In the world of Marvel licensing, everything is connected, or at least seems that way. Compared to villains like Bullseye or Omega Red, Taskmaster is far from a household name, but he has seen a recent surge of popularity thanks to his appearances in
      Marvel's Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 and the upcomingMarvel's Avengers. Notably, footage of Marvel's Avengers shown at E3 2019 involved Taskmaster and Black Widow in a pulse-pounding boss battle. It could just be a coincidence, but it certainly appears as though the stage has been set for Taskmaster to take his place among the pantheon of well known comic book rogues.


      Whatever the case may be, fans have been looking forward to a Black Widowsolo movie for a long time. Following her debut appearance in 2010's
      Iron Man 2, rumors and speculation immediately began to swirl regarding the character starring as the title character in her own MCU film. For one reason or another, nothing came together until now, and the film is set to release in May 2020, around one year after Captain Marvel, the first MCU film with a female lead. Nevertheless, following Black Widow's game-changing role in Avengers: Endgame, hopes are high that this solo movie will give the character the send-off she deserves.

      Black Widow Movie Is Set Between Civil War & Infinity War



      The Black Widow movie has revealed its place within the larger Marvel timeline. After Captain America: Civil War served as something of a game-changer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many of the movies released in its wake worked within the new status quo of the Sokovia Accords. Films likeBlack Panther, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Ant-Man & The Wasp all used the events of Civil War as a starting point for their own storylines.
      Thanks to new revelations at San Diego Comic-Con, we can now add Black Widow to the list. During the SDCC panel for Marvel's upcoming film suite, the mighty blockbuster studio confirmed the film's setting as after Captain America: Civil War, and before Avengers: Infinity War.



      The debut footage shown to Hall H attendees began with a montage of Black Widow quotes from across her many MCU appearances, and ended with Tony Stark's ominous warning from the end of 2016's Captain America: Civil War: "They're coming for you." Then, the excitement truly began, showing off a series of fast-paced action scenes, culminating in the surprise appearance ofTaskmaster as the film's villain.




      It's Tony's warning, "They're coming for you," which serves as the impetus for the events of Black Widow. The film sees Natasha on the run in Budapest, an important location for fans of the character. Thanks to her actions, aiding Captain America and Bucky Barnes in Civil War's thrilling airport battle, she ends the movie on bad terms with the United Nations, who will hunt her down like a fugitive.



      Natasha doesn't appear again until 2018's Avengers: Infinity War, in which she's part of Captain America's team of former heroes on the run from the law, alongside Scarlet Witch and Vision. It's implied she met up with them sometimes before then, but the Black Widow solo film will surely shed some light on her whereabouts in the aftermath of Civil War, one of the most provocative eras in the MCU thus far.
      Black Widow is at least partially set in Budapest, and is likely to explain the recurring references to the Hungarian capital city throughout Black Widow's tenure in MCU (remember Hawkeye's line from The Avengers: "You and I remember Budapest very differently") Likewise, the lack of backstory for the mysterious secret agent has long been a source of contention for MCU fans. She's hinted at the ill deeds she performed before joining Nick Fury in SHIELD, and Avengers: Age of Ultron showed a little bit of the trauma she endured while training to become a cold assassin, including executing bound prisoners and forced sterilization. Presumably, all the "red in her ledger" will be revealed when Black Widow hits theaters.
