Actresses Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh reportedly contracted pneumonia while filming the upcoming movie "Black Widow." The duo, who star in the Marvel superhero film, supposedly fell ill during an intense action sequence. While the severity of their pneumonia is unclear, it is said to have impacted their work schedules. Despite this setback, both actresses are expected to make a full recovery, and the movie production remains on track. The causes of their pneumonia and details surrounding their treatment remain undisclosed.


Scarlett Johansson and her co-star Florence Pugh fell ill with pneumonia during the four-month shoot of the upcoming Black Widow movie, according to director Cate Shortland. Johansson also admitted that she was initially hesitant to take on the Marvel character, but now believes it was the right time for her to have her own MCU vehicle. Both Johansson and Shortland aimed to make a film that was meaningful to young people and women, rather than a typical feel-good Marvel movie. Black Widow will be released in theaters and on Disney+ on July 9.
