Marvel Studios is prepping a list of actresses to take the secondary lead in its in-development Black Widow film, headed up by Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, according to That Hashtag Show.

Drawing on its own report of a cast breakdown from November, 2018, THS claims the role in question is a "kick ass female James Bond" which requires an actress "similar" to Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson, though the podcast/film blog's cast breakdown initially listed the role as seeking an older actress.

Along with Watson, THS names Beautiful Creatures actress Alice Englert, Hostages actress Dar Zuzovsky, and Little Women actress Florence Pugh as being in the running for the unnamed role.

No release date for Black Widow has been set.
