“13 Reasons Why” star Katherine Langford has joined the cast of “Avengers 4,” individuals with knowledge of the project exclusively told TheWrap. Langford has already shot her scenes.
As with most things Marvel, Langford’s role is being kept under wraps.
Shortly before hitting $2 billion worldwide, “Infinity War” passed “Jurassic World” to enter the top five all-time domestic films, with a gross of more than $678 million. It joined the rarified air shared by “Titanic,” “Avatar” and “The Force Awakens” as the only movies to ever gross more than $2 billion.
Langford also has a new gig at Netflix. She will play the lead role in “Cursed,” the streamer’s spin on the tale of King Arthur, from former “The Cape” showrunner Tom Wheeler and “Sin City” filmmaker Frank Miller. Langford will play Nimue, a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake.
Langford earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role as Hannah Baker on Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why.” She exited the show after Season 2, but the series is set to return for a third season in 2019.
Langford is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Independent Management Company in Australia. Reps for Langford denied her involvement.
Marvel had no comment.
The Best Looking 4K HDR Movies, Including 'Avengers: Infinity War'
The new world of 4K and HDR movies is finally coming into its own — and these are the movies that look the best in that format
Now that we're a couple years into the 4K and HDR era, the format has really started to come into its own as movie studios have firmly committed to taking full advantage of everything that Ultra High Definition and High Dynamic Range colors have to offer -- and a little assist from Apple, Netflix, Amazon and Vudu for making 4K content readily available and affordable. So if you're taking the plunge into this beautiful new world of colors you've never seen on a TV before, these movies are absolute must-haves. NOTE: I'm not saying all these movies are good -- your tastes are probably different from mine -- but I am saying they look spectacular in 4K. ALSO NOTE: These are not 4K screenshots.
