So what exactly is the Contessa doing and does that mean she’ll play a bigger role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Kevin Feige just teased Val’s plans and how they will affect other characters in the MCU.
The Contessa was introduced in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier where she was shown recruiting John Walker to become a US agent. By the time she shows up to Black Widow, Val tells Yelena Belova that Clint Barton was responsible for Natasha Romanoff’s death.
His actions are certainly questionable and there is no doubt that people want to know what Val is up to at this point. Fortunately, Feige told the D23 inside Disney Podcast that they plan to bring Julia Louis-Dreyfus back in more projects now that she’s in the MCU.
“The future is bright for the MCU because Julia Louis-Dreyfus is one of them. We’re huge fans of her at Marvel. […] The idea of bringing her into the world has always been something, if we could find the right thing, we wanted to do it, ”said the boss of Marvel Studios.
“When this role arrived and the opportunity to have it in [Black] Widow, in [The] Falcon [and The Winter Soldier], and maybe other things to come… ”Feige teased.
We love the idea of having more Louis-Dreyfus in the future, especially since it means we might find out if she’s ever worked with Yelena this whole time. Hopefully we can see her again much sooner than expected.
the Black Widow the post-credits scene certainly teased the possibility that Yelena and Val could appear in Hawk Eye. With that in mind, we’re keeping an eye out for these characters from the Disney + series.
Black Widow is still screened in theaters and on Disney + via Premier Access.
