Florence Pugh has revealed that Black widows The post-credit scene was not added to the film until re-shootings in late 2020. Pugh plays the role of Yelena Belova, Natasha Romanoff’s younger sister figure in Scarlett Johansson’s swan song the character she has played for eleven years. since the character first appeared in 2010 Iron Man 2. Since taking on the role, Johansson has been a vital part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in all four Avengers movies, as well as the last two Captain America Films.

Black widow is established after the events of 2016 Captain America: Civil War, but before the events of Infinity war and its eventual sacrifice in End of the game. Considering Natasha’s death, many fans had theorized whether or not Pugh would step into Johansson’s shoes as the Black Widow after the events of the film. These theories were seemingly confirmed by the film’s post-credit scene, which jumped forward after the events of Endgame and saw Yelena apparently working for Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine, who first appeared in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Fontaine interrupted Yelena at her sister’s grave and offered her her next assignment, apparently confirming the belief that Fontaine might be building the Dark Avengers, including Wyatt Russell’s Agent in the United States, and preparing Yelena’s return in the United States. Hawkeye series scheduled for Disney +.
Since then, Pugh has revealed to Variety that this later scene was not added to Black widow until its re-filming, which took place during the winter of 2020. The main filming took place during 2019, before the Covid-19 pandemic, which finally stopped the Black widows premiere. When asked about the post-credit scene, Pugh explained that she “I didn’t know there was going to be one” and that the scene was “I really did shoot … right when we did new takes.” Pugh’s full statement can be read below:
“We actually shot that scene right when we did new footage for Black Widow… I was doing scenes again with Scarlett, and I was tied to her on various machines, and we laughed again… And then the next week, was in his grave! It was quite shocking to move forward so fast, but wonderful to have seen Scarlett just the week before. I think it would have been sadder if it had been many, many months later. “
Perhaps most interestingly, Pugh did not feel so ingrained in the scene due to meeting with Johansson to re-film scenes. Pugh has previously stated that she and Johansson formed a close relationship during filming, similar to the one between Natasha and Yelena, so it would have made sense if Pugh hadn’t seen her in a while to further reinforce the sense of loss that Yelena feels. the scene. It’s also interesting to note whether or not there were plans to have the post-credit scene, or if they were a last-minute addition. It’s not uncommon for these scenes to be added at the last minute. The Avengers’ The famous shawarma scene was allegedly filmed on the opening day. It is more than possible that this was the intention from the beginning, and that the filming coincided with the re-shoots. However, Pugh seemed positive about the post-credit scene in general, stating that “It was really wonderful to jump forward and see [Yelena] he’s been surviving. “
As with all post-credit scenes, it looks like it will have significant implications for the MCU in the future. One of the bigger questions that arises from the scene surrounds Fontaine’s intentions with this team that he’s apparently building. Hawkeye It will be released later this year, though little information about the show’s plot has been revealed so far. If Pugh will return earlier than expected, it will certainly be entertaining to watch him interact with the man he blames for his sister’s death. Fans of Black widow and the MCU as a whole will just have to wait and see what follows the character in the future.
