In the “Black Widow” solo film, Florence Pugh was already able to convince as Black Widow’s sister. Now the actress even gives hope for a second part.
Actually, after the end of “Avengers: Endgame” we no longer expected a solo film for Black Widow. But Marvel made that possible last week, also introducing Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova. The performance of the actress known from “Midsommar” was very well received by both fans and critics.
At the weekend, Pugh posted a video with her stunt woman Kella McAllister on her Instagram page to celebrate the cinema release. In the video itself we see the exercise of a jump in slow motion. However, the description of the picture is even more interesting. In it, Florence Pugh thanks everyone who made her appearance in the Marvel film possible in the first place. In the last sentence her hope for a “Black Widow 2” could show. In it, she says that she would be happy to throw knives at cardboard boxes again with her stuntwoman or to rappel down together.
It is difficult to say whether this could mean yet another “Black Widow” film. Because it has already been confirmed that we will see Yelena again in the Disney Plus series “Hawkeye”. The shooting for it has at least been completed for a long time, which is why the actress no longer has to hope for another appearance. Since “Black Widow” was not only well received by viewers, but has also been extremely successful in both cinema and streaming, a sequel would be quite likely. However, time must tell in what form this awaits us.
Black Widow has released in most of the countries across the world and is already the biggest movie at the box office. Riding on positive critical reception and word of mouth, it has garnered the biggest box office opening yet, both domestically and globally.
But the film is missing one much-awaited thing that MCU fans expected: the cameo of Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark. The actor was rumoured to have a cameo in the Scarlett Johansson-starrer but was missing in the final cut.
While speaking to Total Film, the film’s director Cate Shortland revealed, “Initially, there was discussions about everything, about all of the different characters. What we decided was, and I think Kevin (Marvel chief Kevin Feige) was really great, he said, ‘She doesn’t need the boys.’ We didn’t want it to feel like she needs the support. We want her to stand alone. And she does.”
Many MCU standalone movies regularly cameo roles from stars of other movies, so it would not have been out of place. For instance Spider-Man: Homecoming featured Tony Stark, and Thor: Ragnarok had the Hulk.
Black Widow earlier received an impressive score of 80 per cent at Rotten Tomatoes. The critical consensus reads, “Black Widow’s deeper themes are drowned out in all the action, but it remains a solidly entertaining standalone adventure that’s rounded out by a stellar supporting cast.”
Also starring Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, Olga Kurylenko, William Hurt, Ray Winstone, and Rachel Weisz, Black Widow has Natasha Romanoff confronting the demons of her past that return to haunt her.
“Black Widow”(” Black Widow ”in Spanish), the film about Natasha Romanoff, the character played by Scarlett Johansson, hits the screen simultaneously through Disney Plus (through Premium Access, with an additional payment) and theaters of some countries of the world. Its release date? July 9, 2021.

Set after the events of “Captain America: Civil War”, the movie, directed by Cate Shortland and Johansson’s last as the ‘Avenger’, like all the installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that have been released in recent years, it also comes with a big question: will it have post-credits scenes? While “Black Widow” is a prequel, it doesn’t mean you can’t set up a future release with one of these classic company scenes.

“BLACK WIDOW”, DOES IT HAVE A POST-CREDIT SCENE?
Indeed, the movie about Natasha Romanoff features a post-credits scene. Thus, the new Marvel movie maintains its tradition of anticipating what is to come in future installments.
Of course, everything indicates that Marvel has changed the pattern that followed for this type of scenes. If you are an attentive fan, you may remember that the Marvel’s post-credit strategy era: the tape ends, it shows us a middle credits scene that sets up the next movie in the MCU. Then come the full credits, and finally there is a shorter scene; generally, some trivial joke.
“Black Widow”Instead, it strangely skips the stylized credits entirely, and goes straight from the end of the film to the main credits. That is, unfortunately, you will have to at the end to see the additional scene.
WHAT THE POST-CREDIT SCENE OF “BLACK WIDOW” IS ABOUT
While fans will have to wait a few days to see exactly what this post-credits scene entails, recently the director Cate Shortland provided context behind these images.
“That was filmed when we came to the states from Europe”, explicó Shortland a Deadline. “The sequence was filmed as part of our ‘pick-ups’ (supporting images) in early 2020, before COVID-19”added.
So for those who have begun to speculate what the scene might entail, and if could have been an addition after the final cut, to reflect some aspect of the ever-changing MCU timeline, it seems that the sequence was already ready. In fact, the same director has said that the tape has been ready for a year.

WHAT CATE SHORTLAND SAID ABOUT THE MOVIE
In an interview with Comicbook, Cate Shortland commented that “the exciting thing is that this whole legion of new characters will be unleashed.”
And I think what’s really exciting is also that there’s an ambiguity about those characters. So while, let’s say, the original legion was pretty black and white, I think some of these characters that are going to come to the fore have a darkness about them. “added.
“That is interesting, because that is not something we are used to seeing as well. In some ways, it is more complex. Some of the characters are more difficult. But I think what people want is a change. I think we can continue to see the same thing. And I think Kevin [Feige] he’s very aware of that, I think he’s not just changing cultures and adding different voices, [sino] what it is also doing is adding different perspectives on the world “Shortland pointed out.
WHAT SCARLETT JOHANSSON THINKS
In dialogue with Saltar Intro of El Comercio, Johansson considered that waiting for the theatrical release is worth it. “‘Black Widow’ is such a cinematic and explosive film, it’s everything you love about going to the movies, it transports you, through the sound, the soundtrack, it’s fun and it’s a shared experience”said the actress.
At the beginning of June 2021, in an interview with Total Film, Scarlett Johansson declared about the goal of getting her character’s first solo film on track: “I didn’t feel like the character needed to be vindicated … When we finished ‘Avengers: Endgame’, I felt good about the work we did. I felt like, unless we were going to do a deep dive, which is this movie … I thought, ‘Okay, her.’.
“I love Natasha. He’s had an incredible 10-year journey and I felt like he was finally able to make an active decision. (Alluding to Black Widow’s decision to sacrifice herself to retrieve the Soul Stone in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and die for it). It seemed very typical of the character, that maximum sacrifice that she makes. She’s made her peace with it and, somehow, she’s known that’s her destiny all along, in a weird poetic way. When you look back at the movies, that’s there. All the movies have led her to that choice, to be able to make that decision; or make it a choice”, He added.

As the best boss in the world would say: oh my gosh, (maybe) it’s happening! There are not a few fans who long for the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the Marvel movies, however, the actor denied it on several occasions and we had not heard from it. But change today. Through their social networks, Hugh shares a stunning photograph that could suggest his return as the popular big-screen mutant. It’s been a while since we last saw Logan in theaters but maybe things are about to change.

Hugh Jackman was cast as Wolverine for the X-Men – 81% of the year 2000. At the time I had no idea that he would become the most beloved mutant on the team, with solo films and millions of fans around the world who loved his ravenous and warm portrayal of the character. Of course the best came in 2017 with Logan – 93%, his last film as Wolverine and a magnificent closure for the character. Although many still think that Jackman will not return as the superhero, his most recent Instagram post turns the tables.
Yesterday, Hugh Jackman shared a Wolverine fanart made by BossLogic, the famous Instagram artist. Everything normal, everything fine up to there, the actor appreciating the illustration in reference to his work. But today a particular story comes like thunder: Jackman has posted a picture of him alongside Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios. No, it was not the executive’s birthday, or any other date in particular; the actor uploaded the photo without a single hashtag or any sign to imply the motive, just the silent suggestion of his return as Wolverine, this time for the MCU.

Kevin Feige has been very quiet about the plans he has for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the series on Disney Plus are beginning to pose an interesting scenario for everything, especially Loki – 96%. The adventure of the God of Deception brings with it some interesting concepts that will surely be developed in future films, for example, the famous “variants”. The series explains that these variants are products of deviations in the original timeline, however, they could be something much larger. The post-credits scene of the fourth chapter showed us three other variants of Loki, and maybe this could just be Hugh Jackman in his alleged return as Wolverine within the MCU, not Fox’s version of the X-Men, but a variant of the multiverse in Marvel Studios.
Unlike WandaVision – 95% and Falcon and the Winter Soldier – 97%, Loki It is the series that has told us the most about the multiverse, that narrative resource that all fans are waiting for and that is as common in comics as breathing. The new era of Marvel Studios intends to explore this part with ambition, presenting incredible settings and adventures very different from what we have seen before.
Perhaps the most anticipated film on the subject of the multiverse is Spider-Man: No Way Home, a film loaded with rumors in which the central talk is the return of the first Spider-Man actors at Sony, along with the villains we saw in those movies. Alfred Molina was the actor who already declared his return as Doctor Octopus in the MCU and about it Kevin Feige recently declared for AND Online: “People get a microphone, some people like to talk, some people like me … not so much.”
No Way Home opens in theaters on December 17.
