The first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe starring Black Widow has been announced, as the studio’s Agents of S, the spy agency, continues to fight the threats posed by an insidious enemy called the HYDRA.
The film stars Elizabeth Olsen as Agent Phil Coulson, a.k.a.
The Widow, a ruthless and powerful former assassin who is hired by Tony Stark (Samuel L. Jackson) to investigate the death of her estranged father, Hank Pym.
She is the first solo female superhero movie to be produced by Marvel Studios.
Director Anthony and Joe Russo have a reputation for taking their characters into new and unexpected directions, and they’re back to that tradition with “Agents” (a.k, Marvel Cinemacy), the second film in their upcoming Avengers: Infinity War sequel.
The studio has been trying to get its films into theaters since May, but with a big screen release coming up, it seems it will have to wait until the end of the year for “Agers” to get the green light.
The film stars Tom Holland as Agent Pym, the original Black Widow, who is currently working for Tony Stark.
The production of “Agent” will take place in New York City, with the film shooting in the U.K. and China.
It is the second Marvel film to be directed by Joe Russo, who helmed “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which was released last year.
