WARNING: This article contains full spoilers for Black Widow.
Black Widow’s final moments were a bit emotional. Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) set out to find Captain America (Chris Evans) and rescue her fellow Avengers, to bridge the gap between Civil War and the events of Avengers Infinity War – but that was the hero’s last adventure. ever entered into. Fast-forward to Black Widow’s post-credits scene – which takes place long after Avengers Endgame – and Yelena (Pugh) was shown visiting Natasha’s grave.
The tombstone — which reads Daughter, Sister, Avenger — soon got a bit crowded when Yelena was joined by her new employer, Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).
Valentina started talking business and revealed that Yelena’s next target would be Hawkeye/Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner).
This bomb essentially teases the plot of the Disney Plus TV show Hawkeye.
Yelena actor Pugh recently spoke out about this dramatic ending, first saying she “didn’t know” she would be involved in a post-credits scene.
She further confirmed: “[Yelena] will continue what she is good at, and despite her sister not being there, she is back at work.”

Pugh continued: “If you look at her costume and the way she dresses, you see someone blooming.
“So for me it was just really great to jump forward and see that she survived.”
However, the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe added: “But of course it poses a very different challenge – that’s Natasha’s fighting partner [Hawkeye].”
The upcoming Disney series will presumably pit Yelena against Hawkeye over Natasha’s death.

Hawkeye and Natasha were best friends, so it was extremely tragic when she sacrificed herself on the distant planet of Vormir to get the Soul Stone.
It was all for a good cause though, as the Avengers eventually defeated Thanos (Josh Brolin) with the Soul Stone, in tandem with the rest of the Infinity Stones.
Chances are Yelena won’t remain a villain for too long – but will she kill Hawkeye before she becomes an Avenger?
With Yelena continuing as part of the overarching MCU, she could become the next Black Widow for the Avengers, so she may have to overcome her differences with Hawkeye.

Pugh also spoke about filming the scene after the credits – which was quite a shock to her.
She recalled: “I did scenes with Scarlett again, and was strapped to her on different machines, and we giggled again.
“And the following week I was at her grave! It was quite shocking to fast forward so fast.
“But great to have only seen Scarlett the week before. I think it would have been sadder if it had been many, many months later.”
