A new casting update for Marvel’s Black Widow movie seemingly confirms we’ll be getting some flashback scenes of a young Natasha Romanoff.
Variety reports that actress Ever Anderson (daughter of actress Milla Jovovich and director W.S. Anderson) will be playing a younger version of Natasha in the upcoming MCU flick.
Anderson is having herself a nice moment as she is also set to play the younger version of Scarlett Johansson in Marvel’s “Black Widow.”
Ever Anderson also recently took the Wendy Darling role in David Lowery’s Peter Pan & Wendy, a new theatrical live-action Peter Pan film from Disney that begins shooting next month in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Black Widow is still officially set to be released on May 1st.
In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz is Melina.
Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, “Black Widow”—the first film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe—hits U.S. theaters on May 1, 2020.
