'Riverdale' And 'Transformers' Stars Could Play A Big Role In Marvel's 'Black Widow'

Marvel is looking for the best suitable actress for supporting roles for 'Black Widow' film. They are looking at the stars from 'Riverdale' and 'Transformers'.

This year will mark the ending of Marvel's most successful franchise with the film 'Avengers: Endgame'. The fans are super excited for the film and not only that, the recent release of Marvel's first female-centric film, 'Captain Marvel' recently released. Now the studio is focusing on planning out future projects. 

One of the main projects that Marvel is currently working on is the 'Black Widow' solo film. The studio is looking for the best suitable actress for supporting roles in the film. They are looking for women from age ranging from 15 to 25 years old to play the role. According to the reports by WeGotThisCovered, the makers recently added this character to the script.

Even though Marvel is still early in the process but the studio is currently looking at Storm Reid (A Wrinkle in Time), Isabela Moner (Dora the Explorer, Transformers: The Last Knight), Camila Mendes (Riverdale) and Hannah Quinlivan (Skyscraper), among others.

Whoever bags the role won't be getting a lot of screen time. Earlier there were reports that Emma Watson was in talks to be cast in the film for a major supporting role. 

The film is directed by Cate Shortland, who is still yet to confirm a proper cast for the film. The studio is currently testing actors for the role and now, since they have some names shortlisted, they might narrow down their search. Johansson first appeared as Black Widow in the film 'Iron Man 2' and the Avengers.

The trailer of the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame' showed that among the other Avengers who got snapped out by Thanos in 'Avengers: Infinity War', Black Widow and Captain America are the ones who have a plan to bring everyone back and it's their only option.

We will only find out if their plans succeed after the film releases on April 26. Scarlett is all set to continue playing that role for her solo film which will go into production once the cast is confirmed. 

Talking about playing the role of Black Widow, Scarlett said, "It's difficult! I really like playing Natasha; playing the Black Widow [in The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War]. It's been an interesting journey, to take a character and grow it over these years, and peel the layers back and be able to, as you do in life, grow with this person. It's a character that's really enigmatic and has an amazing origins story, so there's a lot for me to play off of."



 

 

One thing that the fans are sure of is that there has to be a Black Widow solo film since the character has appeared so many times in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In another interview with Den Of Geek, Scarlett spoke about people being surprised when she first decided to play the role. "People were surprised that I wanted to play a comic book heroine", she admitted, "but I loved Iron Man, and I met with Marvel to see what was possible".

She further spoke about the personality of the character and how her past unfolds in the different films that she had appeared in. "I had done my research", she added, "and the Black Widow character resonated with me. She is dark and has faced death so many times that she has a deep perspective on the value of life. In the sequel, you learn more about the sadness in her past".



 

 

"Black Widow is a superhero, but she's also human. She's small, but she's strong. It's hard not to admire her, " she adds. The actress seems to admire the superhero a lot and the fans cannot wait to see her story in the film. The actress had no idea about the release of the first 'Avengers: Endgame' trailer and was totally surprised when it came out, as reported by WeGotThisCovered

Earlier there was a rumor going around that 'Black Widow' would be an R-rated film but the Marvel Studios boss, Kevin Feige cleared out all the rumors by telling ComicBook, "It never was going to be," Feige said. "Somebody writes, 'I hear it's R-rated!' And then everybody writes it up."



 

 

The studio is not yet ready to announce any films before the release of 'Avengers: Endgame' and 'Spider-man: Far From Home', revealed Feige.  "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."

The fans cannot wait to see what Marvel has in store for them after 'Avengers' comes to an end. The studio is moving towards a more diverse content and is also rumored to cast their first gay superheroes in their upcoming project 'The Eternals'.
