Florence Pugh on Being Surprised by the ‘Black Widow’ Movie Script

     July 27, 2019

Last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel finally revealed the first footage from the currently filming Black Widow movie. You can read Haleigh Foutch’s recap here. Shortly after leaving the Hall H stage, the cast did interviews and I managed to ask Florence Pugh a couple questions. She talked about how the Black Widow movie pushes the comic book movie genre in a new direction, why she was surprised by the script, and the reasons why Cate Shortland is the right person to helm the movie.

While the storyline of Black Widow is still under wraps, we know Cate Shortland (Lore, Berlin Syndrome) is helming the film and it also stars Scarlett Johansson, Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, and O-T Fagbenle. In addition, Marvel confirmed at Comic-Con that Pugh is in fact playing Yelena Belova, who in the comics takes over the Black Widow mantle from Natasha Romanoff.
