Black Widow is sounding more badass by the day and it sounds like we’re going to be getting more than just two Black Widow in the film.
Actress Rachel Weisz, who plays Melina Vostokoff aka Iron Maiden revealed to IGN her character is herself a fellow assassin and has been cycled through the Black Widow/Red Room Program since a child. Not only is Melina a Black Widow but we’ll see multiple Black Widows in the movie.
WEISZ: “Well, I can tell you Melina has been cycled through the Black Widow/Red Room Program five times, by the time the film starts. She started being cycled through when she was a child.”
“So, she’s a highly accomplished spy and assassin. But I can’t tell you her relationship to anyone else.”
When asked how many Black Widows in the film she reveals that her character Melina is indeed a Black Widow and that there will be more than herself, Natasha, and Yelena.
WEISZ: “There are quite a number… I’m a Black Widow. Scarlet and Florence, there are also quite a lot of other characters that you meet who are also Black Widows.”
This is very exciting news as Natasha will also have to fend off David Harbour’s Red Guardian and an unknown actor playing Avengers villain Anthony Masters aka Taskmaster.
Filming is taking place at Pinewood Studios UK and is now officially set for release on May 1st, 2020.
