Yelena and Bucky are back! Florence Pugh and Sebastian Stan are set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thunderbolts alongside a few familiar faces.
Marvel confirmed that the Oscar-nominated actress will lead the 2024 movie in September 2022 at D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. Pugh will reprise her role as Yelena Belova, the little sister of Scarlett Johansson‘s Natasha Romanoff and an assassin from Russia’s Black Widow program.
“I am unbelievably excited to be joining this cast,” Pugh told the audience at D23 in a pre-recorded video from the set of Dune 2.
Thunderbolts‘ plot is largely unknown, but the Marvel Comics team was a Suicide Squad-like group of super villains who teamed up. The movie has fewer top-level bad guys and leans more into characters who waver between good and bad, like Winter Soldier (Stan) and Red Guardian (David Harbour).
