Rumor: Robert Downey Jr. to appear in Marvel’s Black Widow prequel?

Buried in a recap of this year’s Saturn Awards, Deadline has given life to a new rumor, reporting that Robert Downey Jr. will be reprising his Tony Stark role in Marvel’s Black Widow prequel. The possible casting reveal followed Avengers: Endgame winning six awards at the event this past weekend. There has not yet been any confirmation from Marvel if Downey will actually appear in the film, though Stark would obviously still be alive during the timeline the story takes place in. It’s also possible that the film will use previously shot material of RDJ in the MCU.

Scarlett Johansson returns as Natasha Romanoff, a spy and assassin who grew up being trained by the KGB before breaking from their grasp and becoming an agent of SHIELD and an Avenger. The film is expected to be set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, but before Avengers: Infinity War.

Black Widow will also feature a star-studded cast including Golden Globe nominee David Harbour (Stranger ThingsHellboy) as Alexei aka The Red Guardian, Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family) as Yelena Belova, Academy Award-winning actress Rachel Weisz (The Favourite)  as Melina and O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Mason.
