It seems that, in the upcoming film, Johansson will be expected to bid adieu to the role of Natasha Romanova after ten years and seven movies. Scarlett Johansson is optimistic that the franchise will be picked up and led by Florence Pugh’s character, Yelena Belova.
“I definitely felt that way from the very beginning. She stands completely on her own. She is strong and different. She’s so different to Natasha.”
Florence Pugh’s Reaction
However, Florence Pugh would like better to wait on and see how well her role is welcomed by viewers before replanting her flag in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She said:
“If that occurs and I am fortunate sufficient that folks recognize my character, that’s a thrilling highway to go on. I might be foolish to not be excited by it. I feel that being a part of the Marvel membership is a superb honor.”
While Florence stays set aside about taking the mantle from Johansson. The director for the movie, Cate Shortland was a little more open to the notion when considering the movie earlier this year. She said:
“And we did not know how great Florence Pugh would be. We knew she would be great, but we did not know how great. Scarlett is so gracious, like, ‘Oh, I’m handing her the baton.’ So, it’s going to propel another female storyline.”
