Did Yelena Belova survive the "Blip"? Let's explore.
Yelena Belova has become a fan-favorite ever since she first appeared in the new Black Widow film a few weeks ago. She is now set to be a staple in the MCU as she can potentially join the Avengers squad....possibly!
The Black Widow movie did a great job at answering many questions we may have had about Natasha Romanoff and her relationship with Yelena. However, what the movie failed to answer is whether Yelena survived the snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.
None of the movies or TV shows mentioned if Yelena got snapped so let's look at the evidence.
Based on the evidence we can conclude that Yelena was snapped. The only person that Natasha loves more than anything else is her sister Yelena.
Natasha doesn't show it very much but Yelena means a lot to her. She is the only person who Natasha would sacrifice herself for.
So Natasha's decision to jump could have been fueled by her desire to save her sister who we can assume was snapped.
Kevin Feige was recently asked the question of whether Yelena was snapped at the end of Avengers: Infinity on Twitter.
The Marvel producer responded by saying:
You will find out, just not on this Twitter thread.
Feige did not go into any more detail about it but we can assume that the answer will be revealed in the upcoming Hawkeye series on Disney+.
Florence Pugh is confirmed to reprise her role as Yelena in the Hawkeye series and we can expect to find out if she survived the snap then.
The end of the Black Widow movie sets up a showdown between Yelena and Clint Barton, as she believes that he killed her sister.
Hawkeye is scheduled to release on Disney+ in late July and will star Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Florence Pugh as Yelena, and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop.
