Specifically, if this film is simply a one-off or setting up for something bigger. Natasha Romanoff was killed off in Avengers: Endgame and this film is a prequel. Just like Bucky was not the only Winter Soldier, Natasha is not the only Black Widow. Fans have wondered if the film will be like passing the torch to Florence Pugh’s Yelina. It seems like fans would like that, but in a recent Uproxx interview, Pugh politely shot that down:
“No, I actually will say when we were making it, it wasn’t anything like that at all. And I am saying it very honestly, it certainly didn’t feel like a passing of the torch kind of film when we were making it. And I think the direction and the feeling and the vibe behind it was genuinely just trying to make this complicated and painful story. And do it justice because a lot of fans have been waiting for her film. And also a lot of people I think will appreciate this story. Kate’s done an amazing job on showing these two girls and, I suppose, facing their history and facing their pain. The direction was more on that front. But I’m happy that people have appreciated the trailer and I’m looking forward to watching it.”
Perhaps it didn’t feel like passing the torch while making the movie, but depending on the popularity of the film and Pugh’s portrayal, perhaps Marvel would consider including her in the MCU? It may seem easy for others to say that a Black Widow involved in The Avengers is a thing of the past, but Pugh is too amazing to not consider it.
What do you think? Would you want Pugh to take up the mantle?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
