David Harbour Joins Marvel’s “Black Widow”

David Harbour is on board the Disney/Marvel Black Widow standalone feature. 

Best known for his role as Jim Hopper in Netflix’s Stranger Things, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Harbour will star opposite lead Scarlett Johansson for the Avengers spy turned superheroine film. Also recently cast in the film is rising actress Florence Pugh. 

While the feature obviously centers on Johansson’s Russian spy-turned-Avenger Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow), not much else is known about plot, and no word on who Harbour is set to play. 

The pic will be directed by Australian filmmaker, Cate Shortland (Lore).

You can see Harbour next in Hellboy slated to hit theaters in April. He is set to reprise his role for Stranger Things’ third season which will be available to stream July 4. 

Black Widow is the second female fronted pic following Captain Marvel, which just smashed the $1 billion milestone at the global box office.
