And if you're wondering if Alexei is anything like Hopper from Stranger Things? Think again. Netflix David explained, "He [Alexei] does have some similarities to him [Hopper], but also he's very Russian in a way that Hopper is very American." Also, I can't help but think about the post-credits scene in Stranger Things Season 3 now. 9. In terms of David suiting up in The Red Guardian's signature costume, we'll have to wait and see. Marvel Playing coy, David said, "I hope that I do, but I don't know." 10.

Melina has been "cycled through the Red Room, the Black Widow training project, the same place that Natasha was trained, since [she] was a child." Alberto E. Rodriguez / Getty Images 13. Rachel said one of the reasons she signed on for Black Widow was because of the "beautifully written and complicated female characters, which is very unusual in a superhero movie."

Kevin Winter / Getty Images He elaborated, saying, "On one side there's a lot of business they have to do together, and on the other side there's a bit of a divide between them." 16. And finally, Florence Pugh, who plays Yelena, said Black Widow is about "these amazing, broken, and powerful women." Kevin Winter / Getty Images She continued, saying, "They are equal, they're compatible. They are hurting, and I've never played anything like this before.
