The Enduring Legacy of Black Widow
As for seeing Pugh’s future in the MCU, Johansson stated, “There’s not another person that I could envision as a better addition to the Marvel Universe than Florence. She’s an incredible actor. She’s an amazing athlete. And she has amazing screen presence. I feel very, very confident in her ability to take her character and run with it, and develop it as far as she wants to take it. She’s just a pleasure to be around and also a pleasure to watch. I’m excited to see what she does with it. I feel just as excited as everybody else to see where it goes.”
In response to Johansson’s praise, Pugh shared, “Aww, what am I supposed to say after that? That was really lovely. In terms of receiving this next chapter, Scarlett was as generous and as graceful as she was just then saying all that to me.”
“Before I started working with her, when I came to work on set, this is a big deal. She’s held a massive character for the past 10 years, and it came to an end,” continued Pugh. “And then I step into her film, and I was always, always, always, so grateful for the love and the support that she gave me from the beginning. I remember when we went to San Diego Comic-Con and it was so terrifying and alien to me. I’d never been to anything like this before. When we watched our trailer on-screen, Scarlett went and grabbed my hand. I remember, in that moment, being really appreciative in being welcomed on this journey with someone like her. And then just to hear all that as well, that was exactly how she was throughout the process.”
