Black Widow lastly debuted this weekend, and Marvel followers are going loopy over the Scarlett Johansson film. However whereas ScarJo is rightfully receiving plenty of reward for what may very well be her remaining efficiency as Natasha Romanoff, another person arguably steals the present and possibly even threatens to interchange Nat in followers’ hearts. Florence Pugh enters the MCU as Yelena Belova on this movie and he or she’s turn out to be an prompt favourite.
As we’ve seen from the trailers, Nat and Yelena have a surrogate sister relationship, as they basically grew up collectively whereas on an undercover mission within the US within the 90s, raised by their faux dad and mom Alexei (David Harbour) and Melina (Rachel Weisz). The duo rekindle their sibling bond all through the film, one thing that followers can’t get sufficient of, although the very fact we all know all of it ends in tears with Natasha’s demise (see Avengers: Endgame) is making people emotional.
Right here’s only a style of all of the love that’s going round for Pugh and Yelena on social media proper now.
Single-handedly bettering 2021.
Their bonding over Yelena’s superior vest – it has so many pockets! – is proving common.
However followers can also’t deal with the data that Nat goes on to put on that very same vest in Avengers: Infinity Conflict.
And the post-credits scene, by which Yelena visits Nat’s grave, didn’t go away a dry eye in the home.
On the upside, not less than we all know Pugh shall be again very quickly as Yelena, as that very same post-credits scene teases her return within the Hawkeye TV collection, the place Clint Barton shall be her subsequent goal.
After that, it’s doable Pugh might take the lead in Black Widow 2 or possibly be part of the MCU’s Thunderbolts lineup. Within the meantime, catch her in Black Widow, in theaters and on Disney Plus now.
