After all of the delays, Black Widow turned out to be a reasonably middling MCU journey. Certain it was good to see the main focus squarely on Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, however the iffy struggle choreography, flying sky base finale, and tackle Taskmaster weren’t nice. However no person can deny that it didn’t introduce some very promising new MCU characters.
The apparent stand-out was Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, who will return soon in upcoming Disney Plus present Hawkeye. However David Harbour’s Purple Guardian and Rachel Weisz’ Melina Vostokoff have been additionally unimaginable, giving us a window into the MCU’s spycraft previous whereas being charismatic as hell besides.
Kevin Feige has simply sat down with the D23 Inside Disney podcast and mentioned they’ll “hopefully go forth someday inside a future storyline” and that they “undoubtedly” need them again:
“It’s all the time the intention that when characters are available, and nice nice actors are available to the universe, if we have now a good time with them, the viewers did, that you simply all the time need to see them once more. I feel it’s a protected wager that we undoubtedly need that to occur.”
That’s a reduction as they each may have been given extra to do in Black Widow. Purple Guardian’s struggle with Taskmaster was very transient and although we noticed Melina battle the opposite widows, there’s definitely extra potential there.
They might make a brief appearance in Hawkeye, although taking pictures on that has wrapped sequence and the pair weren’t seen on set so I wouldn’t wager on it.
Given Purple Guardian‘s want to struggle one other Captain America, maybe probably the most wise place for him to seem subsequent can be Captain America 3. New Cap Sam Wilson isn’t any slouch in relation to preventing, however the genuinely superpowered Alexei could give him a run for his cash (although he’d little question be disappointing he wasn’t dealing with Steve Rogers). Past that, Melina’s management abilities and expertise could make her a good fit for the rumored Thunderbolts project.
Both means, let’s hope we see the pair once more sooner fairly than later. Extra on this as we hear it.
