The Marvel actress added it was untrue because she has been doing back-to-back films, and even though she signed an exclusive deal with Marvel, she did an indie film in 2022, one year after the release of Marvel’s Black Widow.

“I think when we finished Black Widow I knew in the back of my head that if this character was asked to come back, [she] would be a completely different person because the whole film, the whole storyline of Black Widow, is that she’s got her sister back and she’s found her family again.”

This is one of the traits of the actress, as she thinks of the characters as real people, and her performance not only focuses on her dialogues but also on the emotional growth of the character. As fans could see Yelena Boleva as a sarcastic and reckless character but when she reprises her role in Hawkeye, she is furious, broken, vicious, and full of grief at the death of her sister, Natasha Romanoff. And she will reprise her role in Thunderbolts, fans are excited because they will see more sides of the character.
