Yelena's Back in Brand New 'Hawkeye' Featurette
Don't miss the epic final episode this Wednesday, December 22!
Yelena's back, and better than ever!
In the new Marvel Studios' Hawkeye featurette above, Florence Pugh (Yelena) and Hailee Steinfeld (Kate Bishop) join directors Rhys Thomas and Bert & Bertie to celebrate the return of Pugh's fiery assassin to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"I did not see it coming," exclaims Pugh, "that they were gonna put me and Clint against each other, which I thought was a really cool twist."
"Yelena is such an amazing character," raves Steinfeld, "and her and Kate have quite a lot of fun together."
"Bringing someone like Florence, it really brings in an interesting dynamic with Kate. Like, I think that's what was really fun, was actually to see how these two characters click," reveals Thomas.
"To see Natasha Romanov's sister sitting talking to Clint Barton's protégé, we just sat back and really enjoyed it," says Bertie.
"When we finished Black Widow, my whole experience was with Scarlett, and she really welcomed me into the MCU," adds Pugh. "And then to jup into her scene partner's world was just as sweet. It's been a really good first two years in the MCU."
Will Yelena complete her mission by killing Barton? Find out in the exciting final episode of Hawkeye, launching exclusively on Disney+ this Wednesday, December 22.
