Hot on the heels of the news that David Harbour has signed on for a role in Marvel’s Black Widow movie, we’re hearing that Academy Award-nominated The Favourite actress Rachel Weisz is also in talks…
Fresh from her Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nomination for The Favourite, Rachel Weisz (Constantine, The Mummy) looks set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to Variety, Weisz is currently in talks for Marvel’s Black Widow movie, although they stress that she has yet to sign on the dotted line. Should the deal go through, Weisz would star alongside Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, and David Harbour.
Like Harbour, details on Weisz’s role have not been shared, but based on those recent character breakdowns there is a strong possibility that she’ll be playing one of the movie’s villains.
Hat-tip to That Hashtag Show, who first mentioned Weisz in connection with this movie several weeks ago.
