The long-planned Black Widow solo movie is finally getting off the ground, and is in talks with Rachel Weisz to co-star.
For years, we’ve been hearing about a prospective Black Widow solo movie showcasing Scarlett Johansson’s Marvel Cinematic Universe character, a.k.a. Natasha Romanoff. Indeed, had plans been more expedient, it would have been the first female-led feature for the Marvel Studios branding; an honor that would ultimately go to the Brie Larson-led Captain Marvel. However, after years of inertia, things appear to be moving quickly for the Black Widow project, which is now rapidly announcing cast members!
While it was just reported that Stranger Things and Hellboy star David Harbour was cast for the Black Widow movie, a subsequent report from Variety has revealed that Oscar winning actress Rachel Weisz is now in talks for what is being called a key role in the film.
