BLACK WIDOW Set Photos Reveal The Return Of William Hurt's General "Thunderbolt" Ross

Some photos from the set of Black Widow have been revealed, and they confirm that William Hurt will be reprising the role of General "Thunderbolt" Ross. What does this mean for the future? Check it out...

William Hurt first played General "Thunderbolt" Ross in The Incredible Hulk and he later returned in Captain America: Civil War (a movie that ended with Tony Stark warning Natasha Romanoff that Ross would be coming after her). Now, following his brief Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame appearances, he's been spotted on the set of Black Widow

One very interesting theory doing the rounds is that Ross will be part of a post-credits scene which will see him recruit Yelena Belova to the Thunderbolts (a team who have been rumoured to arrive on the big screen for quite a few years now). However, it seems far more likely that he'll appear in order to address Natasha's actions from Civil War. After all, she betrayed the Sokovia Accords in order to help Captain America escape, and that's bound to play into this solo adventure in some way.

Regardless, we'll find out when Black Widow arrives in theaters on May 1st, 2020. In the meantime, check out the set photos by following the link below:

With the film set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Johansson promises we’ll see a different Natasha than the one in past MCU films. “When something huge explodes and all the pieces are landing, you have that moment of stillness where you don’t know what to do next — that’s the moment that she’s in. In that moment, you actually have to face yourself.”

Harbour’s character is also known as the Red Guardian, Russia’s answer to Captain America. “In a way, he’s a super-soldier, but he’s also a very complicated guy. He has a lot of flaws, a lot of idiosyncrasies. It’s a very rich character” Harbour told EW.

"In a way, he’s a super-soldier, but he’s also a very complicated guy," David Harbour says of Russia's answer to Captain America, Red Guardian. "He has a lot of flaws, a lot of idiosyncrasies. It’s a very rich character." That beard is pretty damn impressive, eh?
 
Comic-Con attendees were treated to a fight scene between Black Widow and Pugh’s character Yelena Belova, described as a sister figure to the superspy.

It hasn't been released online but those attending Comic-Con were treated to a fight scene between Black Widow and Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova. However, it sounds like these two have a sister-like relationship and will actually be allies in the movie. 
 
Fagbenle describes his character Mason as “a fixer,” who comes from Natasha’s past and is “kind of into her.” “It’s a bit of a complex relationship with Natasha because obviously, ostensibly we have this kind of business transaction, but I think there’s a little romantic frisson,” Fagbenle told EW.

"It’s a bit of a complex relationship with Natasha because obviously, ostensibly we have this kind of business transaction, but I think there’s a little romantic frisson."
