Langford is best known for playing the lead on Netflix’s teenage suicide drama ’13 Reasons Why’ based on the bestselling YA novel by Jay Asher. Her character, Hannah Baker left behind a series of audio tapes which she recorded prior to committing suicide and Langford appeared in flashbacks as her friends, mainly Clay Jensen (played by Dylan Minette) listen to the tapes and assemble the reasons for her death. In Season Two, she also appeared as her ghost/figment of Clay’s imagination, as he dealt with the fallout of Season One. Netflix has ordered a third series, but Langford has announced she will not be part of. Prior to that, she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her depiction of Hannah.
Instead, she is moving over to a new Netflix series, ‘Cursed’, created by ‘The Cape”s Tom Wheeler and comic book artist Frank Miller. Langford plays Nimue, “a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake” from the legend of King Arthur.
As stated, Langford’s ‘Avengers 4’ role is a secret, but if I had to guess… uh… the never-before-seen sister of Darcy (Kat Dennings) from the first two ‘Thor’ movies?
Considering that her scenes are already shot and there has been no real fuss over her casting, it doesn’t seem likely that Langford is playing a major character. But then again, with all the secrecy around this film, she could be and we just don’t know about it.
To be honest, if she is playing a character from the comics that hasn’t yet been used in a movie or TV series, there is only one that I can think of that would suit her:
Kate Bishop, also known as Hawkeye. Jeremy Renner‘s involvement in this film is a mystery, after the fact that he didn’t appear at all in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, but with ‘Avengers 4’ most likely relaunching the Marvel film franchise, meaning that many original stars may be saying goodbye, now may be the time to bring in Clint Barton’s comic book replacement.
Who do you think Katherine Langford is playing? Who would you like her to play?
