Scarlett Johansson Talks AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON; Script Has "Glass-Cutting Sense of Humor"

Scarlett Johansson Talks AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON; Script Has "Glass-Cutting Sense of Humor"

Declaring preparation for The Avengers: Age of Ultron her main focus right now, Scarlett Johansson gives our first impression of Joss Whedon's script for the Marvel sequel, offering nothing but praise.

Scarlett Johansson is currently taking part in reshoots for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and she has promotion for that film to look forward to, but the actress says most of her attention right now is on preparation for her fourth turn as Black Widow in next year's The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“No, I’m busy planning Avengers 2 right now... that’s my main focus,” she told Parade when they asked if she had started plans for her wedding. “I’ve never been a big planning kind of person. I’d never share it with anybody, but I think more than anything I feel really fortunate to have had this amazing year professionally.” When asked what to expect from Age of Ultron, “Oh boy!” enthuses Johansson. “Well, we can expect the Avengers. Joss, again, is back, wrote the script, and is directing. I think the script is dark and it’s dry, it’s got this amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humor. Obviously the script is very cerebral. It doesn’t lose that exciting comic book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it’s smart and it feels like the next installment. It doesn’t feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plotlines are moving forward. It’s deep and I think that’s why people really respond to the Marvel universe, because the films are fun and exciting and have all that flashy stuff, but there’s a gravity to them. People can expect that gravity this time around.” What do you think?

The Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Samuel L. Jackson and James Spader. The anticipated film is set to release on May 1, 2015.

She read the script?
Kurne - 1/14/2014, 3:24 PM
Uh oh she said humor THE SKY IS FALLING
VISIONaryNPa - 1/14/2014, 3:25 PM
@TheAbary So has Renner and Ruffalo, with Ruffalo saying "wow!" about the script.

I'm excited for the glass-cutting sense of humor.
Brainiac13 - 1/14/2014, 3:25 PM
Another comedy.......hopefully a good story.

Sounds good, Love Scarjo!
ezio619 - 1/14/2014, 3:27 PM
great-here come the humor haters in 3...2...1, they will ignore whatever else she said about the script being cerebral and dark which whedon said that the film is alittle bit darker and has a more of a science fiction element to it due to Ultron
DrDoom - 1/14/2014, 3:29 PM
I'm starting to think that people mention humour when asked about Marvel scripts just to inspire the 'humour haters' lol
JordanKing - 1/14/2014, 3:29 PM
Pardon my ignorance, but what does "glass cutting humor" even mean? Something to do with it being sharp I imagine?
MexicanSexyman - 1/14/2014, 3:30 PM
I hope the humor stays funny after watching the film more than once, unlike the first Avengers film. All the jokes in the Avengers seem so awkward after the first time I watched the film.
Kurne - 1/14/2014, 3:30 PM
The word "dark" makes them tingle.
SuperCat - 1/14/2014, 3:33 PM
Must be Marvel Day!
marvel72 - 1/14/2014, 3:33 PM
can't wait,loved the first movie & i'm expecting the movie to up its game on all counts.

ScorpioRisin - 1/14/2014, 3:35 PM
Can't [frick]ing wait.
YeezusWept - 1/14/2014, 3:36 PM
Obvious flame-baiting putting the "humor" line in the title. You know comic book fans don't read the articles.
SuperiorMrGod - 1/14/2014, 3:38 PM
Guys calm down. Avengers was funny to and had plenty of ".. amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humor." You shouldn't just emphasize on that, she also said it was dark and dry so....
GliderMan - 1/14/2014, 3:39 PM
Yes! I love one liners!

Hopefully Hulk actually speaks more.
GliderMan - 1/14/2014, 3:40 PM
Don't listen to Joementum. The more humor, the better the movie.

@DrDoom "I'm starting to think that people mention humor when asked about Marvel scripts just to inspire the 'humor haters' lol"

I think so

DrDoom - 1/14/2014, 3:41 PM
Scarlett Johansson was the worst part of Avengers anyway

Mediocre Black Widow
CapsShield - 1/14/2014, 3:41 PM
You know, for all the people who hate humor in Marvel, you all sure do spout a bunch of one lines, make sexual innuendos, and post a lot of memes. It's good enough in your every day life, but in a movie it's Satan's spawn?

Sounds like some people got a PhD in Double Standard from the Jelly School!
Kurne - 1/14/2014, 3:42 PM
Hulk and Thor vs Ultron is going to be amazing.
gambgel - 1/14/2014, 3:42 PM
Id love a darker Avengers sequel.

But we all know how dark Marvel can go, so I wont get a darker and more adult oriented movie, lol.

As long as its a bit more complex with cool new stuff and great action by all, including Pietro and Wanda, it will be fine.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/14/2014, 3:42 PM
If you seen Whedon's other works(Serenity, Cabin In The Woods, Astonishing X-Men) you should know that he's great with humor.
MulhollandJr - 1/14/2014, 3:43 PM
"Cerebral" haha
Interestein - 1/14/2014, 3:43 PM
The Avengers have always had a sense of humor dynamic between them, so does the Marvel Universe as a whole. People need to stop complaining about comedic aspects, such as Iron Man 3, there was a ton of humor in it, but it worked.
BaneSmash - 1/14/2014, 3:43 PM
Great more Galaga jokes :/
AvengersRock - 1/14/2014, 3:43 PM
Can't wait!! I, for one, love all the humor in the MCU. This sets the MCU apart from the DCCU, which doesn't use humor. It's not better or worse, just different. I like the darker DCCU too, but I do like the lighter tone of the MCU. That was always Stan Lee's trademark - his humor.
DarthMauve - 1/14/2014, 3:44 PM
Oh Noes! Avengers 2 is clearly going to be rammed full of banana skin gags and probably end in a huge custard pie fight. It's a disaster!
BaneSmash - 1/14/2014, 3:44 PM
@Doom - They're going to crucify you for saying that!
JamesMan - 1/14/2014, 3:44 PM
"Hopefully Hulk actually speaks more."

ezio619 - 1/14/2014, 3:47 PM
batmaniac-oh wait people like desrow and 1to10 are coming!!, anyway awesome general zod avatar,i really liked michael shannon as zod
McNyagano - 1/14/2014, 3:47 PM

Actually BaneSmash has.
ezio619 - 1/14/2014, 3:47 PM
Avengersrock- i am giving you a huge applause right now sir, exactly!!!
SageMode - 1/14/2014, 3:48 PM
this movie is gonna be so badass that its gonna shake the world.
marantaz - 1/14/2014, 3:49 PM
Anyone complaining about humor is an idiot. That's right, all you whiners are idiots. I D I O T S. Big letters, neon flashing, fireworks shooting out of your asses idiots. I don't know how I can make it much clearer to you idiots, cuz your idiots, I know.

And how many of these idiots are fans of the Joker? Probably all of them. Have I made my point? Idiots.
40oz - 1/14/2014, 3:49 PM
"It’s deep and I think that’s why people really respond to the Marvel universe".... LOL. Marvel movies are about as deep as a kiddy pool. Hopefully she means that the Marvel universe is deep and not that their movies are deep. After watching Iron man 2, 3, and Thor 2, I have lost faith. Hopefully Cap 2 can pull me back.
Dusk - 1/14/2014, 3:50 PM
Why do people bitch about comedy?! Is there never any comedy in the comics?!
Vegeta - 1/14/2014, 3:50 PM

1 person? Really? There were about 10 people complaining about 'humor haters' before BaneSmash even commented.

Its like people WANT the 'humor haters' to come into the article. It reminds me of the people that say "Flame War in 3, 2, 1..." and shit like that to subliminally advocate flame wars.
Enphlieuwince - 1/14/2014, 3:51 PM
Humor Haters assemble!

Wait, did she say "dark and dry?"

This will greatly please the DramaConscious League.
