Florence Pugh announced for new 'Black Widow' film.

Move over ‘Avengers: Endgame’, we have a new Marvel Cinematic Universe film to be excited about - at long last, Scarlett Johansson will be receiving her own 'Black Widow' spin-off, joined by Florence Pugh who will play the currently unnamed second lead character.

Following in the footsteps of the success of Marvel’s first female lead superhero film - ‘Captain Marvel’ - the new 'Black Widow' film is sure to be another success, especially after fans have been pining for it for so long. Cate Shortland will direct, cementing this to be a real female powerhouse. Pugh is rumoured to be playing a character who is Johansson's 'moral opposite', but few other details have been revealed.

We currently have no air date for when Pugh and Johansson will be gracing our screens, but the cogs are in motion and no doubt more details will follow.

Florence Pugh will appear in 'Midsommar', due to be released later this year. Watch the trailer below:
