CGC Partners with ACE ASSIST and KLF Sports for an Exclusive Private Signing Event with Florence Pugh!

Posted on 11/22/2021

Get ready for an exciting Private Signing with Hawkeye actress Florence Pugh!

CGC is partnering with ACE ASSIST and KLF Sports to bring fans an exclusive Private Signing with the award-winning actress Florence Pugh, who made her Marvel debut starring as Yelena Belova/Black Widow in the critically acclaimed Black Widow film. Pugh is returning to the Marvel Universe in the Disney+ Hawkeye television series. 

Pugh’s first major role was in The Falling and since then, she has starred in blockbuster films such as The Outlaw King, The Commuter, Fighting With My Family and the psychological thriller Midsommar. Her portrayal of the teenage bride Katherine in Lady Macbeth earned her a British Independent Film Award, while she received an Academy Award nomination for her turn in Little Women. Some of her more recent projects include the upcoming films Don’t Worry Darling and The Maid. 

“Having the cast of Hawkeye is tremendously satisfying, especially since this will be the first time ever that Hailee Steinfeld and Florence Pugh have signed!” said Stephen Shamus, ACE Comic Con President. “Jeremy Renner has embodied the Hawkeye character since 2012’s The Avengers, while Florence has recently appeared in Black Widow, and Hailee is not only in the new Hawkeye (as Kate Bishop), but also Spider-Gwen from Into the Spider-Verse. This is a tremendous opportunity for people to get CGC-certified signatures from all of these great characters at the same time!"

“CGC is excited to be partnering with ACE and KLF to bring fans another unforgettable Private Signing event with stars of the Hawkeye series,” said Brittany McManus, CGC Signature Series Director. “Florence Pugh is an astounding actress, and her role in Hawkeye is highly anticipated. We know fans are going to be thrilled to have this signing opportunity!” 

For this exclusive event, ALL CGC members, including free CGC members, can submit books directly to CGC headquarters in Sarasota, Florida. CGC must receive all submissions for this event by Friday, January 7, 2022. 

If the CGC Private Signing needs to be rescheduled, CGC will securely store all submissions in its vault until the event can be rescheduled.
