Scarlett Johnson all the way up!
Johansson first appeared as Black Widow in 2010’s “Iron Man 2”. With the more recent increased attention on women-led films, there’s been a push from Marvel fans for Black Widow to get her own original movie like every other Avenger. The MCU comes near to a closing stage for “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” the time is right for the studio to move forward on the project.
Fans have waited for a Black Widow standalone movie ever since. Winstone is world-wide known for playing Mr. French in The Departed. It won the Best Picture award at the Oscars. He also worked with Scorsese again on Hugo, and his other major credits include the first Narnia movie, the fourth Indiana Jones movie, and Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic Noah.
