Meanwhile, Pugh – whose assassin Yelena debuted in Black Widow and continued to appear in Hawk Eye shortly after – said of her MCU future: “I think when I came on board there wasn’t even a conversation about whether there would be this scene or that scene or a future Yelena.

“It was like, ‘Get involved, get stuck in.’ And I was so grateful to be invited.

“I think for me, whatever the future is, I would like to, I guess, follow [Scarlett Johansson’s] footprint. How to make Yelena different, how to make her stand out? How to make it powerful? And it’s going to be an ongoing conversation, I hope.”
