As the long-demanded solo movie for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow continues to amass its core cast, now comes word on another new addition for the feature.
Courtesy of Deadline, O-T Fagbenle has landed a to-be-revealed leading role in Black Widow. Best known for The Handmaid’s Tale and appearing in Doctor Who, Fagbenle joins a cast that currently includes Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour and Rachel Weisz.
Details and characters for Black Widow are being kept hush-hush at this stage, although it’s believed that the film will be a prequel of sorts that takes place before Johansson’s Natasha made her MCU debut in Iron Man 2.
To be directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow has yet to be given an official release date just yet, although it’s expected that the picture will nab a May 2020 or November 2020 release.
Much like several other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe outings, it’s expected that more concrete information will be revealed once the landscape-changing Avengers: Endgame hits cinemas later this month.
