Pugh is also expected to start shooting the Marvel flick “Thunderbolts” with Harrison Ford this summer.

The star — who is included as one of TIME’s 2023 list of Next Generation Leaders — told the mag of making the move into the MCU, “So many people in the indie film world were really p**sed 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 then starred alongside Dwayne Johnson in the 2019 WWE film “Fighting With My Family”.

Pugh told TIME, “The person I came back to was a female wrestler with muscles and big thighs who made her own name as a champion.

“I quite liked that because the last time I’d been there I was told I needed to lose weight—it was just so not the person I wanted to be.”
