Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova debuted on last year’s Black Widow film and is now a supporting character in the Disney+ series Hawkeye. With her ever-growing presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she has quickly become a fan favorite.
There is no question that Yelena Belova is one of the toughest and most fearless characters. With her appearances on different platforms, she is slowly getting acquainted with different MCU characters. This means that somewhere along the way, she will form alliances and long-lasting friendships. Here are our best picks for Yelena’s potential partners:
Both of them are reserved and a bit recluse, and may take a bit of time before they let their guards down. But because of their similar past experiences where they were controlled and brainwashed, they may find comfort in each other. They have the same level of depth when it comes to personality.
Bucky and Yelena are also great fighters, which fans can already imagine how invincible they would be if they ever pair up. They also complement one another, as Yelena is more of a strong-willed person while Bucky is more adaptable.
Sharon and Yelena are both trained in espionage, and they will certainly make a good pair of spy agents. Both of them shared the same hardships when Sharon had to face the consequences after the events in Captain America: Civil War and Yelena after her sister left the Red Room.
These two suffered immense solitude and seclusion because the people close to them decided to leave without notice. They might find comfort in each other and form an effortless friendship built on shared sentiments.
Carol Danvers and Yelena both exude that badass and cunning femme fatale aura, and it would be a fantastic sight to behold to see them become best of friends. Danvers and Belova were both haunted by their pasts, but they managed to flee their old life and start anew.
Their humor also matches up, and they are both great at decision-making. Their sense of independence would make them quite an unbeatable match.
Same as Danvers, Valkyrie is also a great choice for a friend. Both headstrong, brave, and smart, Yelena would love to have a drink with her or even party! Besides, who would not want to be friends with the new leader of Asgard?
Personality-wise, they have the same strong sense of fighting spirit. They both came from a difficult life in the past and dealt with an oppressive system that never cared for their welfare. Certainly, Yelena and Valkyrie would love to diss their previous masters over a pint or two!
Florence Pugh confessed that she would love to see Loki and Yelena team up on the screen. They would indeed bond in an instant. Not to mention Loki’s tricks and Yelena’s carefree attitude, they would just laugh over things.
They also happen to share one thing in common as well – being the younger sibling of an Avenger. They both know how it feels to have a family which isn’t really their family. And, most of the time, it’s difficult and complicated.
