Pugh recently made an appearance in Variety's Actors on Actors series where she sat down with Booksmart's Beanie Feldstein. The film is set to release next year and Florence Pugh, who is set to play Yelena Belova, shares her thoughts about the movie.

Florence Pugh has described "Black Widow" as a "very raw and very beautiful" film. The Midsommar star also explained that Black Widow finally receiving her own film was a particularly special experience for Scarlett Johansson.

At the 2019 San Diego Comic Con, Kevin Feige revealed the plans for Phase 4, which included a standalone film on the OG 6 Avenger - Black Widow. I just finished on it about three weeks ago.

The actress also appreciated the opportunity to work with a female director in the form of Cate Shortland.

The fact that I could make a movie starring a woman and with the best and friendliest director, Kate Shortland, It was a very special and unique experience. I don't know what it will be like to work on the other movies but keep in mind to be on set and think "I know it's not like this, I know this is unique and I should make the most of it".

"I feel we have created some thing incredibly raw and pretty agonizing and pretty wonderful and I consider persons are going to be definitely shocked by the outcome of a big action film obtaining that much coronary heart". And I know lots of people will be emotional about her because her character had such a hard ending, but it was special learning from her, and she's been doing this for like 10 years in those films. She talked about her preparation once she landed the role as well as the places they filmed at. Pugh thinks Black Widow "is so her", and is thankful that she got to be there and witness how she does her stunts. Black Widow will see Natasha teaming up with Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova, the second Black Widow from the modern comics. Tell us in the comments!

Black Widow arrives in theaters on May 1, 2020.
