Shooting is currently underway on Marvel’s solo Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson, and the cast has grown by one, with the new addition of Ray Winstone.
There’s no news on who Winstone will be playing, but as well as he and Johansson, the cast includes David Harbour, Florence Pugh, and Rachel Weisz. Cate Shortland is at the helm, working with a script from Jac Schaeffer, and in classic Marvel style, the story is mostly a mystery.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige is among the producers, and in an interview he spoke a little about what the team MIGHT be aiming for:
“There’s a method to the madness,” Feige said, “There’s always a method and doing things in an unexpected way is something we find fun. There are ways to do prequels that are less informative or answer questions you didn’t necessarily have, and then there are ways to do prequels where you learn all sorts of things you never knew before. I look at Better Call Saul as a wonderful example of a prequel that almost completely stands on its own apart from Breaking Bad because it informs you about so many things you didn’t know about before. So time will tell which way we’ve gone with a supposed Black Widow movie.”
If anything, that just leaves us more confused about what’s happening in this film.
