Black Widow's Florence Pugh Dishes On Being In a Marvel Movie

Florence Pugh is opening up about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

The 24-year-old actress co-stars in the new Black Widow standalone movie alongside Scarlett Johansson, and dished about the film in her Elle UK cover story. See what she said:

On being part of the Marvel franchise: “When you think of Marvel, it’s big and daunting. Especially being a relatively small actor to look at it and go, ‘Oh! I’m going to be a part of this,’ that’s a big decision.”

On when the Black Widow cast was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con: “I was scared because my Russian accent was going to be out there and I didn’t know what it sounded like. I’m also playing a character who no one’s seen before but they’ve read about her; I didn’t know whether people were going to hate me. We [Scarlett Johansson] both stood there and I instantly had clammy, sweaty hands. Scarlett gave me her hand and we squeezed each other, and she also had clammy hands! And then I was like, ‘Oh, this never gets old. This is just as powerful [for you] and you’re their legend’.”

On being in the right shape for the role: “When I got the job, I wanted to know what the regime was. I wanted to know whether it was them or me calling the shots. That was a big deal for me. I didn’t want to be part of something where I was constantly checked on. And people making sure I was in the ‘right’ shape. That’s not me at all.”

Black Widow‘s release date was pushed back due to the global pandemic. Find out the new date right here!
