We Have A Theory On Who David Harbour Will Play In 'Black Widow' And It's Big News For Fantastic Four Fans

It's a pretty big deal.

Since Disney closed its merger deal with 20th Century Fox, Marvel fans have been wondering how they might incorporate some of the previously Fox-owned characters such as the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There are rumours Deadpool might appear in Spider-Man 3, but aside from that we don’t have much of an idea how those properties will fit into the MCU just yet. We do have one theory though.

David Harbour has been cast in the upcoming Black Widow standalone film, but we don’t know what his role is just yet. However, Harbour did make a very suspicious comment during a panel at London MCM Comic Con that has fans wondering if he might be portraying the Thing in the film.

During the panel, Harbour referred to his role as a “thing”, saying, “I’m glad this thing is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

This is, of course, nowhere near an actual confirmation, and considering Marvel only just got access to these characters it might be too soon for them to have written them into any films just yet.

The film begins shooting in June and will likely be one of Marvel’s next releases as it’s set to hit cinemas in 2020.

While it was originally believed to be an origin film, there are rumours Black Widow will actually take place after Captain America: Civil War.

If the Thing does appear in Black Widow what does that mean for Mr Fantastic, Human Torch and the Invisible Woman?

All we know is that if it did happen, Harbour would probably do a great job as Ben Grimm/The Thing.

Marvel Might Be Working On A Way To Introduce Deadpool Into The MCU With Spider-Man 3

Yes, please!

We’ve been wondering for a while how Disney would introduce Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe after acquiring the rights to the character after buying 20th Century Fox.

Now, MCU Cosmic, a site that regularly posts MCU rumours, reports that “a most-reliable source who has delivered 100% for [them] in the past” has told them that Marvel is figuring out how to introduce Deadpool into the MCU. Apparently, there are currently three ideas being floated around about how to do it.

MCU Cosmic reveals the three options include a solo movie, such as Deadpool 3, a Disney+ limited series or an appearance in Spider-Man 3 with Tom Holland.

They report that a Disney+ series might not work because everything on the streaming service appears family friendly and Deadpool is most definitely not family friendly. But it is an option!

The series would also give Marvel plenty of time, longer than any one movie, to get Deadpool integrated in the MCU.

The rumour that they may introduce the character in a third Spider-Man movie is confirmation that Tom does have a three-picture contract with Marvel and that the Marvel-Sony deal will continue as normal.

MCU Cosmic reports this wouldn’t actually be that shocking because Marvel Comics actually published a Spider-Man/Deadpool on-going comic and it was very popular. The two characters reportedly have great chemistry, so that could work very well.

This could be the superhero/buddy cop movie we never knew we needed!

Black Widow Was Almost Given A Heartbreaking Job After The Snap In Avengers: Endgame

As if the movie wasn't sad enough already.

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.

At the beginning of Endgame, we saw how differently all the Avengers handled the snap. Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow didn’t take any kind of break, she got back to work immediately.

She ran point for all of the surviving heroes from the compound and kept up training. She was constantly looking for a way to reverse Thanos’ Snap to try and bring back the people who weren’t there with them.

Essentially, the Avengers were the family Natasha never had and as we later saw, she was willing to do whatever it takes to save them and the rest of the world.

But it seems Natasha almost had a very different, and very heartbreaking, job in the film. According to Slate, directors Joe and Anthony Russo said they tinkered with the idea of having Natasha caring for kids who were left behind after the Snap.

“One thing that we talked about a lot – and I thought was really profound, but it was almost too large of an idea for us to wrangle, but we did try for a while – is just the idea that one-quarter of all children have no parents. Assuming you started with two parents. So that’s a lot of global orphans. Just the staggering number of that. I believe at one point really early in development, Black Widow was actually leading the organization in D.C. that was in charge of orphans, basically. That was what she was heading up five years later. But yes, it’s fascinating when you start running it down.”

Let’s be honest, Endgame was sad enough as it is without throwing in millions of orphans into the mix.

We found out in Avengers: Age of Ultron that Natasha couldn’t have her own children after being sterilised as part of her initiation into the spy world. So, it might have been interesting to see Natasha caring for the children years later, however, the movie was already so long, so it’s probably a good thing it didn’t happen.

They might have changed her job, but they did keep her sacrifice and recently defended the reason they had her die for the Soul Stone.

Joe told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s a fight to see who’s going to kill themselves.”

“It’s a crazy concept for a scene. And as you’ve seen in The Avengers, she’s a better fighter than he is. So when it comes down to a fight between the two of them, she wins.”

Thankfully for Black Widow fans, Scarlett Johansson will be returning in a Black Widow movie which is rumoured to be in production as we speak.
