Well it looks like they're trying to make this happen. They're looking for a female director... I am not sure why that's completely necessary... I just want a good director, a good team, and give us an AMAZEBALLZ Black Widow movie. ⭐However they're late to the game. They could have been 1st Marvel. But Wonder Woman beat you to the punch and so will Captain Marvel. They could have had a leg up on female led superhero movies. Oh well, I'm still excited! I hope this happens and I can't wait!!! How about you?
Although Taika Waititi’s Jo Jo Rabbit has been shooting for a couple of weeks already, the sought after director is still adding to his cast with the latest being Stephen Merchant. The Office and Extras TV show co creator is set to play Captain Deertz, a Gestapo agent in the film, and he joins the likes of Sam Rockwell, Alfie Allen and Rebel Wilson. This new effort, based on Waititi's own script (adapted from Christine Leunens' novel Caging Skies) is set during World War II and follows a young German boy (Roman Griffith), raised by a single mother (Scarlett Johansson), and whose only ally is his imaginary friend Hitler (Waititi himself). As he's schooled by Nazi youth camps to hate Jews, his naive patriotism is tested when he meets a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) that his mother is sheltering from the authorities. There is no release yet, but our guess is sometime early next year. What do you think of this casting news? Let us know in the comments below. GHF
