She finally went rogue, and wound up on SHIELD’s radar in a foul means.

One of the mysterious occasions in Black Widow’s life appears to have taken place at Budapest.

In Avengers: Endgame, the 2 shared a mission to the planet Vormir, and Hawkeye quipped about how they have been “a good distance from Budapest.” That remark appears to suggest Budapest was maybe the place the place the 2 first crossed paths, or else the place they labored collectively for the primary time.

The majority of Black Widow is about someday between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, which implies Natasha Romanoff is a needed girl. For all that is the case, it would not be exhausting for Marvel to weave in a few flashbacks. Florence Pugh is believed to be playing the part of Yelena Belova, Natasha’s successor within the Pink Room program, who within the comics fancied herself as the subsequent Black Widow. It is doable the movie is impressed by the 1999 Black Widow miniseries, by which Natasha tried to redeem Yelena and switch her right into a hero.
