It looks like a wave of actresses have announced that they are part of the cast of Black Widow, the next Marvel Studios feature film.
British actress Simona Zivokvska (born in Macedonia) has announced on her official Instagram account that has a supporting role in Marvel’s Black Widow movie and is seemingly pointing out that she is one of the ladies on the D23 Expo promotional poster.

It’s official. I’ve been itching to let everyone know that I have joined the @marvel universe and taking part in this production. This whole process has been a dream come true & I am very grateful and humbled. None of this would have been possible without God, my family & my kickass agent! ALL GLORY TO GOD! 🙏🏽🖤 I can’t say anything else apart from that but what an exciting journey this has been so far! . . . Официјално е!!! Веќе долго време се мачам да не разкажам на сите дека станав дел од @marvel универзумот и дека земам дел од оваа продукција!! Овој цел момент беше исполнување на сонот, па се сега се осеќам благодарна и смирена 😊 Ништо од ова немаше да постигнам без верба, мојата фамилија и мојот кикас агент!! 🙏🏽🖤 . . . #blackwidow #marvel #dreamcometrue
She most likely is playing one of the at least six widows featured in the film and is likely on this poster. So, her role has to be sizable for Marvel Studios to place her on the first teaser poster.
Simona is mostly unknown to American audiences, but she did work with Star Wars actor John Boyega in the 2012 TV film My Murder.
Other actresses that have seemingly outed themselves on social media as other widows including Shaina West, Yolanda Lynes, and Jade Ma. West and Lynes seemingly have extensive martial arts training.

Scarlett Johansson leads a cast that also includes Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, O-T Fagbenle, and an unconfirmed Ray Winstone.
During San Diego Comic-Con, Rachael revealed her character, Melina, is an accomplished Widow herself and that movie would feature multiple widows beyond Yelena Belova and Natasha.
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.”
“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.”
The film’s setting will take place after the events of Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers: Infinity War.
Black Widow is officially set to be released on May 1st, 2020.
