David Harbour Explains Why He Shared 'Black Widow' Spoilers with Two Specific People

David revealed that he decided to confide in Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer!

“The circle of secrets contains other people that keep secrets,” he told the outlet. “I felt like I could share Marvel secrets with them because, you know, they understand how to desperately keep a secret and the power of that.”

“But then there’s people who really want to know and I just wouldn’t tell them anything,” he added.

David explained that he had a pretty good reason for wanting to share spoilers with the Duffer brothers.

“Both things also take place, at one point, in a Russian prison,” he saod. “So, there were certain production things that I wanted to be different. Costumes I wanted to be different for Stranger Things than I did for, you know, Black Widow.”

The actor revealed that he would “secretly send the Duffers photos of production, photos of my costume,” just so that there was a clear difference between the two projects.

He also altered his performance so that audiences wouldn’t draw too many comparisons between his Stranger Things character and his role in Black Widow.

“One of my biggest concerns though is that I want to make them different,” he said. “The most obvious parallel is that they’re both father-figures in a sense, and in a weird way, they’re both father-figures to adopted daughters,” he said.

“So, Alexei’s narcissism, even his loudness of personality, even the amount of hair he has on his body is, like, all of it is trying to make this character behave much differently based on these set of circumstances, based on these traumas,” he continued.

Black Widow hits theaters Friday (July 9) and you can find out the meaning behind the movie’s end credits scene here!
