Marvel Studios' upcoming film Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson will be more than a regular standalone film as it is said to feature Scarlett passing on the torch to co-star Florence Pugh who plays Yelena Belova.


A post shared by Marvel Studios (@marvelstudios) on

Director Cate Shortland recently spoke to Empire Magazine and explained how vital Florence is to the Marvel Cinematic Universe's future. "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."

We all know the tragic fate Natasha suffered in Avengers: Endgame and the idea of Yelena taking on the mantle from her isn't too far-fetched.

The standalone flick takes place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. It explores Natasha's true origin which has been a huge mystery to MCU fans all these years. Check out the explosive final trailer for Black Widow which will hit cinemas this October:
