Marvel Studios is carrying over the composer from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War for their Black Widow movie, as we’ve learned that Henry Jackman is expected to compose the score for the comic book action flick.
Some of Jackman’s other credits include Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, X-Men: First Class, The Predator, Kong: Skull Island, and Detective Pikachu.
Our very own Nicholas Whitcomb posted the small tidbit on Twitter, which also included that Joseph Trapanese (The Raid 2, Straight Outta Compton) may also be working on the score for Chloe Zhao’s Eternals (currently filming at Pinewood Studios UK).

Cate Shortland directed the movie with a cast that includes Scarlett Johansson as Natasha, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Rachel Weisz as Melina aka Iron Maiden, David Harbour as Red Guardian, O-T Fagbenle as Rick Mason, and Ray Winstone in a mystery role.
Anthony Masters aka Taskmaster is a villain in the film but an actor has yet to be announced for the part.
There is also a wave of actresses playing the multiple Black Widows in the action-packed movie.
Recently, set photos from a shoot in Georgia revealed that William Hurt’s Thunderbolt Ross will be making a cameo in the film (a possible tease for Thunderbolts has been suggested) along with possible new footage with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark.
The film takes place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, closer to the former as Natasha goes on the run.
Filming has yet to officially wrap.
Marvel and Scarlett have promised the most action-heavy experience in the MCU with Black Widow, so I can’t wait to check out a trailer that could help back up their claim.
Black Widow has been officially set to kick-off Phase 4 on May 1st, 2020.
