Take A First Look At The Cast of Marvel’s ‘Black Widow‘. Marvel Studios shared a ton of information about Phase 4 of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) during their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con this last weekend. One of the highlights was the official announcement of Marvel’s Black Widow and the introduction of the films cast!
Entertainment Weekly (EW) got an up close look with the cast of the highly anticipated Scarlett Johansson led Marvel film. Take a look at the cast and find out who they will be playing!
Rachel Weisz as Malena.
O.T. Fagbenle as Mason.
Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova.
David Harbour as Alexi/Red Guardian.
As we saw in Captain America: Civil War, the Russians were developing their own superhero program and one of their experiments turned David’s character, Alexi, into “Red Guardian”. Red Guardian is essentially Russia’s successful version of Captain America.
Scarlett Johansson returns as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow.
“I don’t think I could have played this iteration of Natasha 10 years ago,” Johansson said during Marvel’s Hall H panel at SDCC. “It would’ve been a very different film. I get to play Natasha as a fully realized woman and in all of her many facets. I’m excited for fans to see the flawed side of her, what she perceives to be the flawed side of her. And I’m looking to wipe out some of that red in my ledger, so you guys will be seeing a lot of that.”
Marvel’s Black Widow is being directed by Cart Shortland and will be set in Budapest with Natasha fighting against the villainous Taskmaster. The film is set for release in theaters May 1, 2020 and will usher in Phase 4 of the MCU.
