André Holland has reportedly auditioned for the lead villain of Black Widow. Marvel Studios is just days away from releasing their first female-led Marvel Cinematic Universe movie with Captain Marvel, but they’re already deep in pre-production on the next one. Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is finally getting the solo movie that fans have been asking for, with Marvel Studios also hiring their first solo female director in Cate Shortland for the project.
The solo film has been on track to film this year for several months now, but the latest update pointed to a slight delay. Filming will now begin on Black Widow this summer after Avengers: Endgame hits theaters. The small delay hasn’t slowed down Marvel’s process though, as they’re currently focused on finding the right co-stars for Johansson. It was recently reported that Emma Watson is the front runner for the other female lead role, and now a contender for the villain role has been revealed.
