Marvel’s Black Widow movie, which hasn’t even been announced or confirmed yet, continues to add to its cast. Following the news last week that Rachel Weisz and David Harbour would join Scarlett Johansson in the film, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that The Handmaid’s Tale actor O-T Fagbenle is joining the superhero movie.
Florence Pugh, who starred in Fighting With My Family alongside The Rock and will be seen next in the eerie pagan movie Midsommar, is also set to appear in Black Widow.

The Black Widow movie is reportedly scheduled to start filming this June in London.
