BLACK WIDOW Star David Harbour Seemingly Confirms Plans For Russia's Version Of The Avengers In The Movie

Promoting the upcoming July release of Black Widow, David Harbour has seemingly confirmed that the Winter Guard, Russian's version of The Avengers, will appear in Natasha Romanoff's first solo adventure...

Yesterday, Marvel Studios released a new series of character posters for Black Widow, and David Harbour shared Red Guardian's on his Instagram account shortly after. No big deal, right? Well, it seems the Stranger Things star may have dropped quite the bombshell about the movie! 

As you can see, he captioned the post with, "Ursa, Yelena, Nat, CD, Sputnik, I and all the rest of the winter guard look forward to sharing a popcorn bag and a big ole screen in a dark theater with ya on July 9."

The Winter Guard is Russia's version of The Avengers in the Marvel Universe, and while we obviously know about characters like Natasha Romanoff and Yelena Belova appearing in Black Widow, who are "Ursa," "CD," and "Sputnik"? Well, Ursa Major is a mutant with the ability to transform into a giant bear, and speculation that Olivier Richters will play the character has been running rampant for a while now.

As for "CD," that has to be classic Iron Man villain Crimson Dynamo. An Easter Egg in The Wakanda Files book pointed to Russia possessing palladium (the original source of power in Tony Stark's arc reactor), so there's no reason to believe that armoured villain couldn't be part of the MCU now.

As for Sputnik, we're betting that's a reference to Rachel Weisz's Melina Vostokoff, a character better known as Iron Maiden in the comic books, rather than Vostok, a Soviet scientist who became a new lifeform of synthetic matter and tech after an incident involving extra-terrestrial technology.

Needless to say, the Winter Guard assembling in Black Widow promises to be a highlight...
