Black Widow 2

In a recent interview with Total Film (via Games Radar), Florence Pugh stated she plans to “see if people like Yelena” first before thinking about further Marvel movies.

If you get asked to be in a Marvel film, and it was so thrilling and fun and exciting to be in, then of course, your head goes: ‘Oh my God. If this is what it’s like, then what else is next? If that happens and I am lucky enough that people appreciate my character, that’s an exciting road to go on. I would be silly to not be excited by it. I think that being part of the Marvel club is a great honour. But we’ll just see if people like Yelena first.

Anyone else thinks its funny how Endgame came out and it was like an “end to an era” kind of thing. Then the pandemic hit and its been over a year since we’ve had a Marvel movie. or really any movie

Like WandaVision looks really good, but I kinda don’t care. I feel like I’m kinda done with Marvel at this point. I know Black Widow and Eternals was supposed to come out this past summer. They would have probably kept the momentum going and kept me interested. But with this time away from the franchise constantly throwing things at me I just dont care anymore.

It went out with a big bang and I don’t want to ruin that.
