Alice Englert and Dar Zuzovsky are said to have auditioned for the role as well. The duo is described as having made “strong” impressions.
Marvel is coming up with a lot of exciting projects for their fans. As everyone waits for the 'Avengers: Endgame' to hit the theatres, Marvel is introducing new projects for the future. The studio plans to work on their female lead feature film for the Marvel superhero Black Widow and they are looking at Emma Watson to play the second lead role, as reported by Comic Book.
The publication reports that her name is brought up in the discussions of the casting a lot and she may actually take up the role. Alice Englert and Dar Zuzovsky are said to have auditioned for the role as well. The duo is described as having made “strong” impressions. Florence Pugh was listed as a contender. No official announcements have been made regarding the news but they will soon make a decision and reveal it to the fans.
Reports also suggest that the film will begin with production in the first week of June, leaving director Cate Shortland on a roll. With Scarlett Johansson playing the lead in the film, it is something exciting for the fans as 'Black Widow' is playing a huge part in the Avengers films and now its time we get to witness how she became Black Widow. The studio is also eyeing 'Moonlight' star Andre Holland to play the role of the villain in the film.
Earlier, The Hashtag Show revealed some details about the villain in a report. "Marvel [was previously] seeking a male with open ethnicity in his 40s to portray the film’s villain, who is described only as 'exciting.' The studio is now looking for either a Black British or African actor, 30-45, to portray a 'tough, dangerous and mysterious' villain," stated the report.
Earlier, there were also rumors that the film is will be Rated R but the boss of Marvel studios cleared them off by saying that the film won't get an adult rating. "Yes. Correct... It never was going to be," said Feige. "Somebody writes, 'I hear it's R-rated!' And then everybody writes it up." The studio is not yet ready to announce any new project apart from 'Avengers: Endgame' or 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'.
"There are no mandates to make any more than two films a year," Feige revealed. "As we've seen in the last couple years when it naturally happens and when there are ideas and when there are teams ready to go, we're not going to hold something back. We'll make it." Apart from Black Widow, Marvel's first female-centric film is 'Captain Marvel', is scheduled to release before 'Avengers: Endgame'.
In an interview with Goldsberry, the screenwriter of 'Black Widow' and 'Captain Marvel', Jac Schaeffer spoke about working on both the films at the 18th Whistler Film Festival.
“It was the kind of essentially script doctoring that I had never wanted to do, but I was working for Marvel and they put me off ‘Black Widow’ to do that work and I was like, ‘Okay, they think I’m going to do this’ and I did and I actually liked the speed of it,” he said.
“They would ask me to work on [a] scene that was going to be a shot a week later [and] I didn’t really know what the guiding principles were, but they would be very clear, like, ‘We need voice work’ or ‘This needs to be funnier’ or ‘clearer’ or ‘This character is not working." She also spoke about her journey from being an independent writer, director, and producer, to working from Marvel.
"Before the Avengers, there was Captain Marvel."— Leeroy Ting (@LeeroyTing) March 6, 2019
Everytime I think Marvel couldn't do better, it outdoes itself. Captain Marvel was such a joy to watch & experience. It was captivating, the plot was fresh & compelling & it fits nicely into the Marvel universe

“I started as an independent filmmaker and a director, so I wrote whole scripts with the plan of making those whole scripts entirely by myself.” Schaeffer’s only prior released feature is the 2010 romantic comedy “TiMER,” which she indeed directed, produced and wrote, but she admits that it has been “a surprise” how “interested” she is in her work under Marvel and how she finds herself “challenged to get better.”
Schaeffer concludes, “There are so many different kinds of screenwriting, which I didn’t understand at the outset.” 'Captain Marvel' releases on March 8, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. The film stars Brie Larson in the lead role. Captain Marvel is said to be the most strongest Avenger and after the trailer of the film released, fans are excited to watch the film. The film will also feature Nick Fury, who also appeared in the Avenger Films.
In an interview with Screen Rant, the 'Captain Marvel' actor talks about the message she wants to give to the audience. "They don't have to take away anything. Yeah. I feel like it's up to them to decide. I think there's so much in this movie. It's a lot of different aspects of it that I'm really proud of. So I think if I'm lucky enough to have them in the seat and watch the movie, I'm curious to hear what they have to say, " she said.
