Cast Details for Black Widow
Scarlett Johansson will be playing the titular role of Black Widow also known as Natasha Romanoff. David Harbour will be seen portraying the character of Alexei Shostakov (Red Guardian), who is the Russian version of Captain America and has been missions with Black Widow in the past. Florence Pugh will be playing the role Yelena Belova who takes the mantle of next Black Widow in the comics.
Rachel Weisz, Ray Winstone, Olivier Richters, Taskmaster (actor undisclosed) will also play an important part in the Black Widow 2020 movie. Robert Downey Jr. and William Hurt will also appear in their MCU characters as Tony Stark / Iron Man and Thaddeus Ross.
Black Widow Movie Plot and MCU Connectivity
Black Widow movie plot is very confusing to the general audience as her character died in the Avengers: Endgame movie. It is why the movie is set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War when she, Falcon, Scarlett Witch, Captain America, Vision, and other characters were on the run.
There will also be flashbacks to her time in Russia and hence the story of Black Widow movie will run in two time periods. Even though it’s a solo movie, it will take part in the MCU and the presence of Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as Tony Stark/Iron Man is evidence for that.
