Photos From The Black Widow Set May Reveal Marvel's Future Plans For The Character

Very interesting!

Photos taken on the set of Black Widow might reveal the role Florence Pugh has taken on with rumours she’ll star as Yelena Belova.

THR reported in March that rising star Pugh would have a big role in the film, but it wasn’t revealed who that character was. Marvel still remains tight-lipped about which character she’ll play.

Fans know that in Avengers: Endgame, Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) dies after sacrificing herself for the Soul Stone, which the Avengers needed to defeat Thanos.

So, the solo film will be focussed on Natasha’s origin story as the Black Widow.

A rewrite of the movie happened in March, suggesting the film would add a supporting female role – this is likely to be Pugh’s role.

In new photos taken on the set of the movie, stunt dummies featuring the names Yelena and Natasha were spotted. While it’s not confirmation that Pugh is playing the role, it’s a pretty good indication that she will be.

What’s important about Yelena, is that in the comics she and Natasha were enemies who eventually became allies. Yelena then became the second person to take on the title of Black Widow.

So, these photos could suggest the MCU will introduce a new Black Widow in phase 4 of the Marvel films.

After Natasha’s sacrifice in Endgame, many fans thought she wasn’t treated with the respect she deserved as it somehow connected her inability to have children to her worth. The writers decision to sacrifice her over Clint was made to feel like it was because he had children and she couldn’t.

Pugh recently starred in Fighting with My Family and will appear in Greta Gerwig’s Little Women as Amy March.

Black Widow is expected to be released in 2020 and will mark the first MCU movie directed solely by a woman with Aussie Cate Shortland in the chair.

Tom Holland's Improv In Endgame And Infinity War Has Us Worried For Spider-Man's Fate

This could mean bad news.

When Avengers: Infinity War was released we were heartbroken to find out Tom Holland had improvised the scene where Spider-Man turns to dust in Tony Stark’s arms.

In case you need a reminder…

But now, we’ve found out he also improvised his performance in Tony’s death scene in Avengers: Endgame.

The filmmakers revealed before Endgame that very few people actually saw the full script, as they were scared about spoilers – and let’s be honest, they need to be worried when it comes to Tom! But it would seem that the young actor doesn’t need to see a script in order to do some of his best work.

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Tom said there wasn’t a script for Tony’s final moments.

“It was interesting because when we shot that scene with Robert there was no real script, at all.”

“It was just Kevin Feige, the two Russo Brothers, myself, Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, and Don Cheadle. They kind of brought us to set, they kind of told us what was going to happen, or what they wanted to happen, and then we sort of just improvised if I can remember correctly.”

“So it was a really, really interesting way to shoot such a kind of pivotal scene of the movie, but it was a really emotional day and I mean looking back on it now it was maybe the craziest day I’ve ever had on set, you know? But it was really amazing and turned out to be a fantastic scene.”

In case you can’t remember the details of the scene, Rhodey has a silent goodbye with Tony, while a tearful Peter bends down and repeats, “Mr Stark, we won, we did it, sir. You did it, Mr Stark. Tony.” He then apologises and breaks down as Pepper comforts him.

Tony then sees Pepper and says, “Hey, Pep,” to which she responds, “We’re gonna be OK. You can rest now.”

Aaaand just like that, my heart has broken once again.

One thing that does stand out, however, is the fact that Tom says, “If I can remember correctly,” so, does that mean there’s a chance this isn’t what actually happened?!

Because in that case, we are genuinely worried Spider-Man may suffer a similar fate to Friends‘ Joey Tribbiani’s Days Of Our Lives character Dr Drake Ramoray. Drake was killed off the show after the writers found out Joey told a journalist he writes his own lines. Sound familiar?!

So, all we’re saying is be careful what you say, Tom, and also, please stop breaking our hearts in these movies!

You Can Rent Iron Man's Cabin From Endgame On Airbnb To Help You Get Over The Movie's Ending

If only it came with Robert Downey Jr...

If you, like me, need a place to cry after everything that went down in Avengers: Endgame, we may have found the perfect place – Tony Stark’s cabin!

The cabin is listed on Airbnb and could be yours for around $1,155 a night – ouch!

According to Mashable, the listing was less than half that price before it was discovered by fans of the movie. Now, they’re clearly making the most of that discovery and are trying to market it to fans.

The listing reads, “Avengers Endgame fans… Would you like to stay in Tony Stark’s cabin? This is the iconic cabin in the movie!”

“Home and funeral scene location… Serious bookings ONLY! For those interested in booking huge Marvel Avengers Endgame fans… this IS the cabin!!!”

“You have full use of the cabin and the back porch for hanging out… taking photos and sending text/emails to friends regarding your stay in the Marvel Avengers Endgame cabin.

“Stand where [heroes]/stars stood for the wreath floating in the lake just a few feet away from you.”

The cabin fits six people and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms and it’s only 30 minutes from Atlanta, Georgia.

It looks like the cabin is pretty booked out most weekends until November, so if you fancy a winter stay in the cabin, you better get in quick!
