Florence Pugh Teases ‘Thunderbolts’ Set and Yelena’s Combat Suit


Florence Pugh, known for her role as Yelena Belova in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, recently treated fans to an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes of the highly anticipated film, “Thunderbolts.” In a video shared on Instagram, Pugh provided a sneak peek of the Atlanta set where the movie is currently being filmed.

In the video, Pugh, dressed in her character’s costume, excitedly showcases various aspects of the set, including structures under construction and scenes in progress. Despite the secrecy surrounding the project, Pugh couldn’t resist giving fans a tantalizing preview.


Director Jake Schreier jokingly reprimanded Pugh for revealing too much when she panned the camera to a playback monitor showing Yelena in action. However, the actress continued to share glimpses, including a crewmember’s chair with the intriguing detail of the “Thunderbolts” title printed with an asterisk, sparking curiosity among fans.

The “Thunderbolts” Marvel comics tell the story of a group of villains, but details about the movie adaptation remain scarce. Despite setbacks such as writers’ and actors’ strikes, the production is underway, with a star-studded cast including Sebastian Stan, Hannah John-Kamen, Wyatt Russell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, David Harbour, and Olga Kurylenko.

While initial reports included Steven Yeun and Ayo Edebiri in new roles, they exited the project earlier this year, with Lewis Pullman and Geraldine Viswanathan stepping in to replace them. With its production history and star-studded lineup, “Thunderbolts” is shaping up to be a highly anticipated addition to the Marvel franchise.

The film, initially delayed by various challenges, is scheduled for release on July 25, 2025. As fans eagerly await further updates, Florence Pugh’s behind-the-scenes tour offers a tantalizing glimpse into the world of “Thunderbolts” and the thrilling adventures of Yelena Belova.
