Florence Pugh Set to Join ‘Black Widow’

Earlier this month MediaByte reported that Emma Watson was the lead actress in a list of others to be the MCU heroine’s first solo outing’s secondary lead role. Marvel has in fact casted Emma Watson’s Little Women co-star Florence Pugh.

It’s reported that Pugh will be playing a spy around the same level as the lead Scarlett Johansson, who’s been in the Black Widow role for almost 10 years.

Plot details are scarce at the moment but Hollywood Reporter states that Florence will be a spy who is the “moral opposite” of Johansson’s Natasha Romanov.

Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland, who made the Nazi drama Lore is set to direct this globe trotting film in London, this June.
