Mark Ruffalo Talks 'Black Widow-Hulk' Relationship In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON And More
As Robert Downey Jr. & Chris Evans comment on Scarlett Johansson filming Age of Ultron with child, Mark Ruffalo dishes on Bruce Banner and Black Widow's relationship in The Avengers sequel. Check it out
“She’s just been great. It really hasn’t slowed us down at all,” Chris Evans told Entertainment Weekly of Scarlett Johansson, who filmed her return as Black Widow in Avengers: Age of Ultron while noticably pregnant with her first child. “She’ll be running around, diving and jumping and doing these things and you’re like ‘She seems like she’s got this.” Adding to his comments previously reported, writer/director Joss Whedon says, “We’re not avoiding any of the danger because the stunt women do the danger — as has always been the case. She’s very central to the movie and when we heard [about the pregnancy] we scheduled things around that.”
EW then asked Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. about Johansson's condition, which he says was actually beneficial to the Marvel production. “There’s the element of just God’s grace with Scarlett getting knocked up because that just civilized the whole thing right away,” jokes Downey. “This is not going to be a massive grind. It’s not possible. We have to accommodate the latest news from headquarters, which is: ‘Oh my God, Scarlett Johansson going to have a baby!’” Mark Ruffalo weighs in that Scarlett Johansson was certainly monitored by the cast and crew whenever she wasn't on-camera. “Yeah, they’re very protective of her, and they try not to put her in any difficult situation,” he says. “She’s pregnant, and she’s showing, everyone loves and cares for her, so...”
When Entertainment Weekly's Anthony Breznican was on set for his Avengers: Age of Ultron exclusive, he saw the scene in which Black Widow opens fire on Ultron's Iron Legion, who are attacking the team for the first time, while Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner is seen taking cover. “He’s trying not to Hulk-out,” Ruffalo said. “He knows all the science of his body, what does anger, what does excitement do physiologically speaking. You can’t have deep breathing and anxiety at one time. So he’s worked on controlling this stuff, he knows what he has to do to do it while it’s going down I’m just laying in there because I don’t know how else to be. It’s basically like she said: ‘Do not go green.’” He continued, “In their relationship, she protects him. She kind of becomes his bodyguard, in a weird way. He goes with it. I mean, Bruce, he’s a pacifist, man.”
