What do HBO's queer cult favorite Looking and the Marvel Cinematic Universe have in common? Actor O-T Fagbenle!
Yup, that's right! The dashing SAG Award-nominated, British actor (who is probably best known for playing the role of Offred's husband Luke Bankole in Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale) is in talks to co-star in the forthcoming, Scarlett Johansson-led Black Widow movie.
Fagbenle also played the reccurring role of Frank in HBO's critically-acclaimed, short-lived, gay-themed series Looking and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will be joining other Black Widow actors David Harbour (from Netflix's Stranger Things) and Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family).
With the release of Avengers: Endgame just on the horizon, many details about the upcoming Black Widow solo project are still scarce, but THR also reports that the film is set to begin production in London in June of this year, so it won't be too long until we get to see Fagbenle show off his superpowered acting chops in the MCU!
