Rumoured Black Widow casting breakdowns tease villains and more

With a director on board in Cate Shortland (Lore) and a 2020 release date rumoured, it seems that Marvel Studios is now moving into the casting stage for the long-awaited Black Widow solo movie, and the folks at That Hashtag Show have shared some rumoured casting descriptions for the players set to feature alongside Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff.

According to the site, the main villain will be a male character, simply described as “exciting”, with Marvel looking to cast an actor of any ethnicity in their 40s. In addition, the search is underway for a “conniving female villain” in their 50s to star as a secondary antagonist.

A further five roles are being sought, including two “contemporaries” of the Black Widow – a “kick ass” character described as a “female Bond” and “a male with an emphasis on African, Middle Eastern or East Indian actors”, as well as male and female

Stan Lee had already shot his Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 cameos

The pop culture world lost one of its greats this week as comic book icon Stan Lee passed away aged 95.

In addition to the wonderful characters and stories that he leaves behind, Lee will of course be fondly remembered for his many cameos throughout the Marvel movie universe, and it seems we still have more to look forward to.

Speaking to Variety to pay tribute to the Marvel legend, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige confirmed that Lee had already shot several cameos prior to his passing, with Feige stating that: “I’m not going to tell you what [cameos] specifically. But Stan always appreciated a good surprise.”

ScreenRant is reporting that both Lee’s agent and Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo have since confirmed that Lee will cameo in both Captain Marvel and Avengers 4, which will surely prove bittersweet for fans of the beloved creator.

Here’s a video supercut

Sebastian Stan says he’s unsure if Winter Soldier is in Avengers 4

Actor Sebastian Stan says that he doesn’t know if he will be appearing in Avengers 4.

You would normally assume an actor would know if he will be performing in a film or not but with the way Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 were filmed, the situation is apparently not that clear.

Infinity War and Avengers 4 were filmed virtually back to back and this appears to be why Bucky Barnes actor Sebastian Stan says he doesn’t know if he is in the next Avengers film or not. Either that or he is just acting coy. Speaking to Collider, he said:

“When I was shooting anything, nobody ever told me what was part one or part two. The truth is, I don’t even know if I’m in [Avengers 4]. What I shot was in part one. And anything that I shot may or may not have been in part one

Black Widow Movie Character Details Arrive as Casting Begins?

Character breakdowns for the upcoming Black Widow movie have reportedly been revealed. There have not been too many official updates since it was announced that Jac Schaeffer was writing the script and Cate Shortland is set to direct. However, it has been heavily rumored that the Natasha Romanoff standalone movie headlined by Scarlett Johansson is in the casting process, which makes sense since the project is set to begin shooting early next year. With that being said, these character breakdowns are lacking quite a bit in the information department.

One of the first character breakdowns for the Black Widow movie is for the "Main Antagonist," who is only described as "exciting." The studio is open to ethnicity, but are specifically looking for someone in their 40s. Up next is the "Friends and Foes" section, which is just as vague as the main villain. The first is described as a "kick

Rumored Black Widow Character Breakdowns Hint At The Film’s Villains

Ever since Black Widow debuted in Iron Man 2 back in 2010 and was then a prominent member of the Avengers in the eponymous film to follow just two years later, one had assumed a solo flick starring Scarlett Johansson was sure to bring up the rear. But, lo and behold, Marvel Studios took their sweet time getting there, though we’ll at least see her finally getting a headlining gig in 2020.

Now, given how not all news pertaining to the highly anticipated picture has proven accurate, we advise that you approach the subject for today’s discussion with a little bit of caution. Granted, the source it comes from, That Hashtag Show, has had some solid scoops in the past, but it’s for the better we regard it as rumor at this point in time.

Regardless, we’re all dying to know who’ll complement Johansson in the long overdue Marvel epic,

Infinity War Is 2018 People's Choice Awards Movie of the Year
Avengers: Infinity War won Movie of the Year at the 44th Annual E! People's Choice Awards. Additionally, Danai Gurira, Scarlett Johansson, and Chadwick Boseman took home awards and the movie also won Best Action Movie of 2018. It's been a huge year for Marvel Studios and 2019 might be even crazier. The year started off with a bang when Ryan Coogler's Black Panther was unleashed, and things went off the rails for Infinity War later in the year. The Marvel Cinematic Universe also put out Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was another hit for the studio.

Ryan Coogler took home the Male Movie Star of 2018 award for Black Panther and Danai Gurira took home the Best Female Action Movie Star. The Female Movie Star of 2018 went to Scarlett Johansson for her performance in Infinity War. The Russo Brothers took some time off from editing Avengers 4 to congratulate their friends.

Avengers: Infinity War Wins Movie Of The Year At 2018 People’s Choice Awards

As the most-watched film of the year by a pretty solid margin, it should come as little surprise to learn that Avengers: Infinity War has also been voted “Movie of 2018” by the general public, taking home the top prize at last night’s 44th Annual E! People’s Choice Awards.

The honor was one of five that Marvel Studios earned that evening, in a haul which also included the prizes for Male & Female Movie Star of the Year, Action Star of the Year (Danai Gurira), and Best Action Movie of the Year (Infinity War). And with Disney gunning for a total of eleven Oscars for the ensemble action flick, it seems that the studio has no intention of seeing Infinity War’s round of plaudits stop here.

Kevin Feige teases the Quantum Realm’s importance to future Marvel movies

Since the release of Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp and its reference to time vortexes, there’s been increasing speculation that the Quantum Realm will play a major role in Avengers 4, likely as the means for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to travel through time in an effort to thwart Thanos.

Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed refused to rule out the possibility a few months ago, and recently we’ve saw some artwork of new Avengers costumes which bear a passing resemblance to Hank Pym’s Quantum Realm suit.

Now, during an interview with Comic Book, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has confirmed that the Quantum Realm is set to be very significant in future Marvel movies – although he stopped short of giving any specifics:

“At the end of Ant-Man we followed Scott Lang into the Quantum Realm for the first time. We were beginning to peel back
