After several years and over 20 films, Marvel Studios will soon be giving their leading ladies the spotlight with next year’s Captain Marvel and eventually the Black Widow film. Fans have been clamoring for a standalone film from the latter hero for quite some time now, and with Phase 3 winding down, it looks like the studio is finally making room in their schedule.

With the film finally making some progress, bits and pieces of info are making themselves known, and the folks over at That Hashtag Show have the latest. This next batch of info are reported character breakdowns for specific roles — or at least what appear to be specific roles. Even the outlet acknowledges that these have become vaguer over time and, as a result, it’s been difficult for anyone to come to any real conclusions about who these characters are. But that doesn’t stop them from trying, now does it?

First off, the outlet source says the following regarding the villains:

“The villain is simply described as ‘exciting’ and the studio is open to ethnicity, but looking for someone in their 40s.”

Hm…okay, interesting…that narrows it down, doesn’t it (it doesn’t)? They speculate it could be Night Raven, who was in the Fury/Black Widow: Death Duty comic, but there is no real evidence for this.

The next two characters are as follows:

“The first is a “kick ass” female character described as a ‘female Bond.’
[The other is] a male with an emphasis on African, Middle Eastern or East Indian actors.”

Both of these actors would be in their late-20s and early-30s. There is also a search for a “European Caucasian female” and “European Caucasian male” both 50-60 years old. They don’t speculate this, but I can’t help but wonder if these could be her parents. There is also an emphasis in getting actors who can speak multiple languages.

The last two mentioned are a woman in her 50s who can be a “conniving female villain,” and finally a “bookish American” in his late 20s, the latter of which is a minor role.

The outlet goes on to give their best guesses, but given how few details they have and how many characters exist in the Marvel mythos, I couldn’t even begin to speculate based on the information given. But that doesn’t mean you couldn’t at least try. What do you think of these breakdowns and who could they be? Let us know your thoughts down below!
