"And we don't know how great Florence Pugh is. We know she's great, but we don't know how great she is."

Shortland said: "Scarlett was very kind and said, 'Oh, I'm handing her the baton.' So this is another female story going forward. "

Kate has revealed that she will have a "good" farewell to the role after suffering some sort of murder in the film 'Avengers: Endgame'.

She said: In "Endgame," fans were worried that Natasha's funeral had not taken place. Scarlett, when I talked to her, told Natasha she didn't want a funeral. She's very private, and anyway, people don't know who he really is.

"So what we've done in this film is to allow people to end the misery they have experienced instead of the big public display. I think this is a fitting end for them."

Scarlett first described the 24-year-old Florence as "sister" and revealed that they had developed a close bond with the set of 'Black Widow'.

The 35-year-old actress said: "I don't have a sister, but I think Florence has some younger sister."

The 'JoJo Rabbit' star said she admired Florence's faith.

Scarlett said: "I want to be as confident as she was when I was her age."

“She has complete confidence and a lot of self-esteem.

"She reminded me - by listening to her talk about relationships with friends, family or her partner - how important it is to be confident in your beliefs and desires."
