Oscar winner Rachel Weisz in talks for a major role in Black Widow
The 49-year-old star is said to be in early negotiations to join Scarlett Johansson’s standalone Marvel Movie, along with ‘stranger things’ actor David Harbour.
News of Weisz and Harbour’s talks come just weeks after ‘Little Women’ actress Florence Pugh was said to be in negotiations about joining the cast.
Weisz was recently nominated for an Oscar for her performance in “The Favourite”.
Few details are revealed about the film yet but it will focus on Johansson’s S.H.I.E.L.D spy character Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow.
An alter-ego she has portrayed in the Marvel cinematic universe since 2010 when she made her debut in ‘Iron Man 2’.
Emma Watson has also been linked to the movie, with her potential part recently described as a “Kick-ass female James Bond”.
The shooting is slated to begin in London this June.
The casting is yet to be confirmed by Marvel.
