Natasha Yelena honours the distinct level of Florence Pugh!

Pugh continued to praise the way that Shortland has embraced the grim potential of a Black Widow story, saying that “One of the most interesting things about the film is how far Cate went with it (…) It’s about how they get involuntary hysterectomies by the age of eight. It’s about girls who are stolen from around the world. It’s so painful, and it’s so important.” If all of that sounds a little dark for you, keep in mind that there should be another Spider-Man sequel after not too long, most likely focusing on a young buck who does whatever a spider can.

Black Widow, which stars Scarlet Johansson, Rachel Weisz, and David Harbour, is set for a November 6, 2020 release date — not that we’d recommend putting money on that remaining true. 

While Florence Pugh has yet to confirm whether or not she will definitely return as Yelena after Black Widow, the rising star definitely seems to enjoy being a part of the Marvel family. And it sounds like, at the very least, she likes the idea of sticking around for a while:

Black Widow is supposed to be coming in November, but most fans don’t think it will actually happen. No one has seen Black Widow yet, but many fans think Florence Pugh’s Yelena could become the new Black Widow character. Natasha Romanoff died in Avengers: Endgame, so we know the position is open. Black Widow will deal with earlier events set between Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. Therefore there is potential for Natasha to ‘pass the torch’ to Yelena in Black Widow, but we simply don’t know for sure?

Pugh recently spoke to Games Radar, and she hinted that her time in the MCU may not be at an end.

“If you get asked to be in a Marvel film, and it was so thrilling and fun and exciting to be in, then of course, your head goes: ‘Oh my God, If this is what it’s like, then what else is next?’ If that happens and I am lucky enough that people appreciate my character, that’s an exciting road to go on. I would be silly to not be excited by it. I think that being part of the Marvel club is a great honour. But we’ll just see if people like Yelena first.”
