Black Widow Fancast (WIP)

by leiatheskywalker | created - 04 Dec 2017 | updated - 8 hours ago | Public

This would be my personal cast for a maturely rated Black Widow show. I feel like this would be better at telling her dark and expansive backstory than a PG-13 movie.

I'm still working on this list, so I might change things from time to time.

1. Mary Harron

Director | American Psycho

Mary Harron (born January 12, 1953) is a Canadian filmmaker and screenwriter. She gained recognition for her role in writing and directing several independent films, including I Shot Andy Warhol (1996), American Psycho (2000), and The Notorious Bettie Page (2005). She co-wrote American Psycho and ...

Director - I wanted to chose someone who considered themselves a feminist but could also tell a gritty story, and Mary is perfect for that. Her amazing work in American Psycho, The Notorious Bettie Page, I Shot Andy Warhol, and Alias Grace showcase this.

2. Veena Sud

Producer | The Killing

Veena Sud was born on June 25, 1967 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She is a producer and writer, known for The Killing (2011), The Salton Sea (2016) and Seven Seconds (2018).

Writer - A spectacular writer of Filipina and Indian heritage. I thought it'd be cool to have diversity behind and in front of the camera (her and Annet are both half-Indian). Veena has done impressive writing for The Killing, Cold Case, and Seven Seconds.

3. Sara Arjun

Actress | Deiva Thirumagal

Sara Arjun is an actress, known for Deiva Thirumagal (2011), Chithirayil Nilachoru (2013) and Jazbaa (2015).

Natalia Romanova / Black Widow - My #1 choice for this role. She's an amazing actress who has portrayed a triple agent before in the KGB drama The Americans. She speaks six languages, including fluent English and Russian. She has a brown belt in martial arts. She brings diversity to the character as a half Russian, half Indian woman. Finally, she'd love to play the part. It doesn't get better than her.
