It’s being rumoured that Florence Pugh could be returning to play Yelena Belova in the upcoming Hawkeye series. This rumour comes from The Direct, and it sounds like Pugh might be getting to expand her role in the MCU moving forward.
Florence Pugh is going to debut in the MCU in the upcoming movie, Black Widow, in which she stars alongside Scarlett Johansson. It seems as though Pugh’s character, Yalena Belova, might end up becoming the new Black Widow in the future MCU movies.
Seeing Pugh play Belova in the Hawkeye series would make sense to me since Marvel Studios will be very keen to have her established as the next Black Widow. It seems pretty obvious that she will be replacing Scarlett Johansson moving forward.
Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova might be in the Hawkeye series on Disney Plus
Here’s what The Direct wrote in their exclusive article claiming that Florence Pugh is going to be playing her Black Widow character in the Hawkeye series:
Florence Pugh, who is co-starring in next year’s Black Widow as the assassin Yelena Belova, will reprise her Marvel role in Hawkeye on Disney+, The Direct has exclusively learned.
Although the full extent of Pugh’s role is currently unknown, our sources indicate Pugh’s Yelena will don a Ronin-inspired costume – similar to the suit that Clint Barton wore in Avengers: Endgame – at one point in the series.
