Florence Pugh is in negotiations to board Scarlett Johansson-fronted Black Widow film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Rising actor would play a spy on the same level as Natasha Romanoff, likely her moral opposite.

After Captain Marvel, the film is the second female superhero-led project in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The shooting is scheduled to begin in London this June.

Australian filmmaker Cate Shorthand of Nazi drama Lore fame is attached to direct. Jac Schaeffer wrote the most recent draft for the film.

Marvel had no comment.
