Director Confirms Pugh As Next Black Widow?

During a recent interview this Empire, Black Widow director Cate Shortland seems to indicate that Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova does, in fact, take over the mantle of Black Widow, as many fans predicted. Scarlett Johansson’s Widow sacrificed herself during the events of Avengers: Endgame, which takes place after the events of the upcoming November 2020 release. “We didn’t know how great Florence Pugh would be. We knew she would be great, but we didn’t know how great. Scarlett is so gracious, like, ‘Oh, I’m handing her the baton.’ So it’s going to propel another female storyline.”
