'Black Widow' star Florence Pugh says the upcoming MCU Phase 4 spy thriller is 'raw, painful and beautiful'

Scarlett Johansson's 'Black Widow' has been termed "very raw and very painful" by actor Florence Pugh. Set to play another assassin named Yelena Belova, the 'Midsommar' star shed some light on the upcoming MCU blockbuster.

"I think we've made something very raw and very painful and very beautiful and I think people are going to be really surprised by the outcome of a big action film having that much heart," Pugh said, according to a report by Comicbook

"And I know lots of people will be emotional about her because her character had such a hard ending [in 'Infinity War'], but it was special learning from her, and she's been doing this for like 10 years in those films. For this to be her film was special. And I got to be there and see how she does stunts and lives it, and it's so her."

She continued:  "The fact that I got to do one of those films with a lead actress and the most beautiful and warm director, Kate Shortland, was a very, very unique and special experience."

"I don’t know what the other films are like and working on them, but I remember being on set many times and thinking, 'I know this isn't like this, I know this is unique and I have to take it all in'," she added.

'Stranger Things' star David Harbour, who plays the Red Guardian in the film had earlier spoken about why Johansson's Natasha Romanoff would make the decisions she did in 'Avengers: Endgame' during the San Diego Comic-Con.

Romanoff was the other Avenger other than Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark aka Iron Man who died in the movie. She sacrificed her life for the soul stone at Vormir. 


'Black Widow' hits theatres on May 6, 2020, and will be the first film in MCU's Phase 4.
