Florence Pugh Says She Joined Marvel and ‘Pissed Off’ Indie Filmmakers

Florence Pugh recently talked about how the independent film industry was upset with her for joining Marvel. This was after she became known in the industry with films like Midsommar and Lady Macbeth, which independent filmmakers made.

The actress told Time Magazine, “So many people in the indie film world were really pissed off at me. They were like, ‘Great, now she’s gone forever.’ And I’m like, no, I’m working as hard as I used to work. I’ve always done back-to-back movies. It’s just people are watching them now. You just have to be a bit more organized with your schedule,” she said.

Pugh became a part of the Marvel universe when she played Yelena Belova in Black Widow. She then played the same character in Hawkeye.

Pugh has joined a big series but still makes her own movies. She finished Sebastian Lelio’s psychological drama The Wonder between Marvel movies.

In March, the well-known actor told Total Film Magazine that she had never planned to do only one kind of movie. “Because I think there’s beauty in all types of those films. There’s beauty in the massive, epic storylines like ‘Dune,’ like Marvel, like even ‘Oppenheimer’ that I did. And then there’s also beauty in all these little ones that not everyone is going to see. I’ve never, ever only thought that I was going just to do one type of movie.”

The next time people will see Pugh in a movie is on July 21, 2023, when Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer comes out.
