Is Florence Pugh Here to Stay? Signs Point to Significant Role in Hawkeye Series
We recently reported that Florence Pugh was just getting started with Marvel, and now, rumors are flying that her role in Hawkeye will be bigger than expected. Sources claim that Pugh’s character, Yelena Belova, will play a significant role in the highly anticipated Disney+ series set to release this year.
It was first announced back in December that Pugh would indeed be making an appearance in Hawkeye, although up until now, no one knew in what capacity. According to Lizzie Hill, Yelena Belova will have quite a large role in the show, stating that, “This isn’t a cameo or minor one-episode appearance. I have confirmed with sources that I trust that she is in multiple episodes.”
The rumor is very exciting news for fans of the sassy, strong, fierce character. Yelena was hands down a fan favorite in the hit blockbuster movie Black Widow and her return is definitely highly anticipated. Hill goes on to say that Pugh will return as Yelena “…Not just as a cameo, but with a significant enough part where we continue to explore her character and what happened to her after Black Widow, and perhaps even deal with her and Clint mourning Natasha in some ways.”
As you may recall, the post credit scene of Black Widow shows Yelena visiting Natasha Romanoff’s grave. Valentina Allegra de Fontaine then hands her a photo of Hawkeye, stating that for her next assignment “Maybe you’d like to take a shot at the man responsible for your sister’s death.” Hopefully this is a sign that Marvel plans on exploring that idea in this new series.
Personally, I can’t wait to see more of Yelena Belova. How about you?
