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
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
Young Natalia Romanova
Actress | The Americans

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.
