Scarlett Johansson is handing the baton to Florence Pugh!
Scarlett Johansson has found the perfect ‘Black Widow’ in costar Florence Pugh and will be joining Johansson in the standalone movie and has joined as the sister figure Yelena Belova for Natasha Romanoff.
In the recent interview, Shortland shared:
“Scarlett is so gracious, like, ‘Oh, I’m handing her the baton.’ So it’s going to propel another female storyline.”
In the upcoming movie, we will see both of them trained as an ultimate government operative. After finding herself alone in Captain America: Civil War she was forced to confront her past that made her what she is today.
Shortland said that while her “Black Widow” film is a swan song for Johansson, it’s also a launching pad for Pugh in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
