It took a lot, a lot, far too much, but the Marvel solo Black Widow The film with Scarlett Johansson is finally reunited. The studio hired lore Cate Shortland, the director, last summer, after telling other female directors that they could call on someone else if she could not handle it, and since then, Kevin Feige, director of Marvel Studios, explained that Black Widow would not be R-rated (because apparently some people thought that it could?). Now, we could even know what unlucky soul is going to get screwed up by the powerful kicks and electrodes of Natasha Romanoff in the movie, with The Hollywood journalist saying that Florence Pugh is "in discussion" to join Johansson in the film.
THR says details of the specific plot "are kept behind the Iron Curtain" (get it?), but we know it will be an international espionage adventure and that the character of Pugh will be " a spy on the same level as Romanoff, probably his morality vis-à-vis. "In other words, it is good Black Widow against Evil Black Widow, which happened quite often during the long history The films only briefly commented on the story of our friend Nat with the Red Room, the mysterious KGB training center that turned her into a weapon (before she only joined the SHIELD), but other characters bore the name and bore the name of Black Widow – the Black Widow combination in the comics.
If we were to guess it, we would say that Pugh would probably play a version of Yelena Belova, a different Black Widow that is pretty much exactly what the THR described organic character. In comics, she was a more perverse version of Romanoff that also joined S.H.I.E.L.D., but she remained diabolical and later joined Hydra before switching between teams of guys and bad teams. Given that Pugh is only 23 years old, introducing a character like this could give the MCU an edge. different Black Widow will make powerful kicks and electrodes in future movies once Johansson hangs up his red wig.
