The upcoming Scarlett Johansson Black Widow film will apparently feature multiple Black Widows, which will include Rachel Weisz and Florence Pugh.
While speaking to IGN at San Diego Comic Con, Rachel Weisz talked a bit about her character in the upcoming film. She couldn’t say much, but she did say that there would be multiple Black Widow characters throughout the film. She, Scarlett Johansson, and Florence Pugh will all hold the title. The footage at San Diego Comic Con showed Scarlett Johansson facing off against Florence Pugh’s Yelena. There was also a quick glimpse of multiple women in Black Widow suits.
Rachel Weisz alludes to more characters holding the Black Widow title than just the three of them, but did not give away their relation to Scarlett Johannson’s character:
“There are quite a number…I’m a Black Widow and there’s Scarlett and Florence. There’s quite a bit of other characters you’ll also meet that are Black Widows.”

New Spider-Man: Far From Home concept art reveals alternate costume designs for Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio.
Marvel fans have been clamoring to see Mysterio in a live-action film ever since the release of Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie. Nearly two decades later, Mysterio finally made his way into a Spider-Man film with the release of Marvel Studios and Sony's Far From Home, with Jake Gyllenhaal portraying the classic Spidey foe.
While the writers incorporated elements of previous Marvel Studios films for the origin of Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio, this take on the character was largely faithful to the source material, especially in terms of the villain's costume design. However, new concept illustrations reveal alternate designs for Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio suit were considered, some of which are notably different from the comic book outfit with entirely different color schemes.
