Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Black Widow’ Movie Adds Florence Pugh
I don’t know anything about her as an actress but what a cute name!
Widow: “oh no we’ve only got ten minutes to stop a bomb goes off, what should we do?”
Unknown character: *eyes bulge, makes weird snorting sounds*
She's a great actress. Great turns in Fighting With My Family, The Little Drummer Girl, and Lady Macbeth.
Could she be playing Iron Maiden?
I think she could be
What if she's Darkstar?
And if she's cast in place of Emma Watson, what if she's Kestrel or Yelena?
I am leaning on Yelena.
I could see her as Finesse if this were not a prequel (how, I don't know), setting her up as a sort of legacy character for Young Avengers (D+ series maybe?), alongside Stature and Hawkeye.
Maybe WandaVision could introduce Wiccan and Speed.
I know I'm pipedreaming, but man if this came to pass!
I enjoyed watching Florence in Wrestling With My Family, in which she played the WWE's Paige.
I wouldn't mind Yelena being a one and done kind of character. On the other hand, given what's done with her in the comics later regarding our green shape shifting friends...
Florence Pugh reminds me of a young Kate Winslet. Serious acting chops and someone I'd want to stick around for a bit.
Unless Pugh gets a ton of meaty screentime in this, I really don't see audiences being particularly interested in Yelena Bolova-led Black Widow sequels.
So much of Widow's popularity is tied to Scarlett Johansson's star power and portrayal of Natasha Romanoff. I don't think it's comparable to Sam Wilson (an established character) getting the shield. Even the new Captain America isn't a sure hit.
I wouldn’t mind seeing a series about Monica Chang one day
Once more... She doesn't have to be established for the sake of ongoing movies based around the BW.
Florence Pugh currently has a new movie out callled Midsommar. It just opened.
Just saw Midsommar and Florence Pugh absolutely killed it! Now I'm more excited for this film.
Confirmation that she'll be playing Yelena, another Red Room-trained assassin.
She can do a great job as Yelena.
Can a mod change the title to Florence Pugh is Yelena Belova? Thanks.
So I given that they said she’s a sister like figure to Natasha I’m guessing this is also an answer to the question asked in Endgame of “does she have any family”. I see this character definitely coming into play again after this.
yeah well, if the last set of films were "The Infinity Saga", then this seems to be "The Legacy Saga"
and Yelena will be Legacy-Widow
And maybe the Legacy Saga will culminate with the Legacy Virus with the X-Men and all mutants.
The original poster can change thread titles now
I really like Florence. She'll do great as Yelena.
