CinemaCon: David Harbour talks ‘Black Widow’ and praises Cate Shortland

While little is known about the next phase of Marvel films, the Black Widow standalone movie adding Stranger Things and Hellboy star David Harbour, playing an “older male contemporary” of Natasha Romanov.

At CinemaCon, Harbour tried to laugh and dodge saying much: “Yeah man, like I want to do the movie,” Harbour said, adding that if he spoiled anything that “[Marvel would] kick me out so fast.”

He then heaped some praise on director Cate Shortland:

“Look here’s what I will say. It’s being directed by this woman Cate Shortland who is a phenomenal director. She directed a movie called Lore. She’s a phenomenal director, so what’s really exciting to me about it is it’s gonna be like a real deep, interesting film. And so yeah, I’m just excited for it as a film as well as a superhero movie.”

Harbour discussed the pressure to get in shape at the gym now that he’s “action star of the year,” admitting he doesn’t “love” working out, but he realizes that it’s now a year-round task for him now.

He also admitted that Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson will be “in far better shape than me, but that’s fine.”

Marvel has released a synopsis for Black Widow, confirming it will be a prequel set prior to the events of the first Avengers movie, “an internationally-set story centering on Natasha Romanoff, a spy and assassin who grew up being trained by the KGB before breaking from their grasp and becoming an agent of SHIELD and Avenger.”

The new film also stars Rachel Weisz and Florence Pugh.

Black Widow does not yet have an official release date.
