Yelena Belova Is Leading the Thunderbolts in a Message from Florence Pugh at D23

Marvel's Yelena Belova looking up from a cooking pot, surprised.

The leader of the Thunderbolts is here and her name is Yelena Belova! Florence Pugh couldn’t be at D23 due to her filming schedule for Dune: Part II, but she popped into the celebration to tell us that Yelena is going to be the leader of the Thunderbolts in the upcoming film! Yes, that does peak my interest for the upcoming movie tenfold.

Yelena, who first made her appearance in Black Widow, is the sister of Natasha Romanoff and a former member of the Black Widows. We last saw her working with Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), who sent her on a revenge mission to kill Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). Yelena next appeared in Hawkeye, where she befriended Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) and made peace with Hawkeye after realizing that he loved Natasha just as much as she did. Now, Yelena is on her own, operating on her own terms. Pugh sent a video message that was played on the big screen as Kevin Feige, director Jake Schreier (Kidding, Lodge 49), and her castmates watched on.
