Why Scarlett Johansson ignored Dennings willson with Yelena Belova!

For the official return of Natasha Romanoff, fans will just have to wait until the 2021 release of her solo film, Black Widow, which will take place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, long before her death. Like Gamora, Black Widow was killed as a result of getting the Soul Stone, and thus she was not able to be resurrected in Avengers: Endgame. As such, it’s unlikely anything else will be able to bring her back to life, and the Black Widow film will be Natasha’s final adventure in the MCU.

Arriving later this year on Disney+, WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as Vision, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, and Kathryn Hahn.Marvel’s Black Widow will debut Florence Pugh’s interpretation of Yelena Belova, a complex anti-hero in the Marvel Universe who might have a bigger role in the MCU moving forward. Since the character’s introduction way back in Iron Man 2, fans have been wondering whether or not Scarlett Johansson’s secret agent would receive her own solo movie. Her history pre-S.H.I.E.L.D. has always been a little murky within the MCU’s timeline, and references to her past misdeeds as well as run-ins with characters like the Winter Soldier have only made curiosity grow in recent years.

The movie, while still a prequel, is set shortly after the events of Captain America: Civil War, while Natasha is on the run from the U.S. government. It will dive heavily into her past and the origins of the mysterious Red Room, while introducing characters from her past such as the Red Guardian (David Harbour) and Melina Vostokoff, another Black Widow and ersatz mother figure to Natasha. The Black Widow movie also marks the first appearance of the MCU’s version of Taskmaster, a villain and assassin in the comics known for his ability to mimic the fighting techniques of any of his opponents.

Among all the new characters being introduced in Black Widow, the one with the most potential for future appearances in Yelena Belova, played by Pugh. Her relationship with Natasha in the comics have brought the two assassins to blows as well as to each other’s aid, and it’ll be curious to see how the MCU flips their relationship on its head.

Introduced in 1999 and created by Devin Grayson and J.G. Jones, Yelena was an orphan trained to become an assassin by the Red Room, much like Natasha. Yelena was just as skilled as her red-haired rival, but because Yelena wasn’t chosen for the Black Widow Ops Program, she never received the biochemical enhancements that gave Natasha her extended vitality. For a while, Yelena simply worked as an espionage agent for the post-Soviet Russian intelligence agency named the GRU, taking dangerous missions across the globe and even coming into conflict with the Inhumans themselves. However, during her time as a spy and assassin, she was re-discovered by Natasha, now working with S.H.I.E.L.D. as the Black Widow, and eventually Natasha showed Yelena the deceit and treachery that went on behind the scenes of international espionage.
