‘Black Widow’: William Hurt Returning as Thunderbolt Ross in Marvel Film!!

With additional photography taking place on Marvel StudiosBlack Widow movie, Just Jared has posted some new set photos from the Scarlett Johansson-headlined solo movie which reveal that William Hurt is reprising his role as Thunderbolt Ross.

Hurt made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, and has since reprised the role in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

Given that Black Widow takes place after Civil War, Ross will presumably be looking to have words with Johansson’s Natasha following her actions in that film, where she helped Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) to escape the battle in Germany. However, there’s also been some speculation that Hurt could appear in a post-credits scene, setting up a potential Thunderbolts movie.

Black Widow is being directed by Cate Shortland (Lore) and sees Scarlett Johansson reprising her role as Natasha Romanoff alongside Florence Pugh (Fighting With My Family) as Yelena Belova, O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Mason, David Harbour (Stranger Things) as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, Rachel Weisz (The Favourite) as Melina Vostokoff/Iron Maiden, and Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast) and Olivier Richters (The King’s Man) in as-yet-unrevealed roles. William Hurt (Thunderbolt Ross) and Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark) will also reportedly feature.
