BLACK WIDOW: Emma Watson Is Reportedly Front-Runner To Star Opposite Scarlett Johansson

With production scheduled to begin very soon on Black Widow, Marvel will soon begin to assemble a cast to fill out the supporting roles opposite Scarlett Johansson, and Emma Watson's name has now come up.

It looks like we may have an idea of some of the actresses currently on Marvel's radar to play the second female lead in the solo Black Widow movie opposite Scarlett Johnasson.

Although they stress that nobody has actually been offered the part yet and others could well be in the running, That Hashtag Show reports that Emma Watson (Harry Potter, Beauty and The Beast), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures, Ratched), Dar Zuzovsky (Hostages, Neighborhood) and Florence Pugh (Fighting With my Family) all recently auditioned and are said to have "made a strong impression" on the studio.

Out of these four, it sounds like Watson might well be the front-runner - although it's important to take all of this with that ever-ready pinch of salt until we hear more.

The name of the character in question remains a mystery, but previous breakdowns indicate that she's a "kick ass female Bond" type, so the role will almost certainly be a physically demanding one.

What do you guys make of this? Do you think Watson or any of the other actresses named here would work well opposite Johansson's Black Widow? Drop us a comment down below.
