Rachel Weisz in early talks to join the cast of Marvel's Black Widow.

Rachel Weisz is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as she is in early talks to join Scarlett Johansson in Marvel's "Black Widow" standalone movie.

Now a deal has not yet to be reached according to Variety but it's said that talks are headed in that direction, with strong interest from both sides of negotiations.

"Stranger Things" star David Harbour is also in talks to join the film, with "Outlaw King's" Florence Pugh on board and Cate Shortland signed on to direct. Jac Schaeffer is penning the script.

"Black Widow" is largely suspected to be the film that follows this summer's "Spider-Man: Far From Home" as the next installment in the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe.
