Stranger Things and Hellboy star David Harbour is joining the MCU for a role in the brand’s Black Widow movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
David Harbour is best known for his role as Chief Hopper in the Netflix series Stranger Things. The actor is no stranger to the world of comic books, as he had a small role in 2016’s Suicide Squad and is playing Hellboy in the Neil Marshall-directed reboot that opens later this month.
Cate Shortland is directing Black Widow from a script written by Ned Benson and Jac Schaeffer. Production is expected to begin this June in London with rising actress Florence Pugh also on board alongside Scarlett Johansson and David Harbour.
The Black Widow film is expected to take place before the character’s debut in Iron Man 2.
