Robert Downey Jr Knocked Out Scarlett Johansson On The Avengers Set

<em>Robert Downey Jr</em> Knocked Out <em>Scarlett Johansson</em> On <em>The Avengers</em> Set

Bit of humorous news here. Iron Man accidentally knocked out Black Widow?! Robert Downey Jr was said to be very apologetic after flooring co-star Scarlet Johansson



According to on set reports, Robert Downey Jr. was fiddling with the controls of his Iron Man costume while waiting to film scenes featuring him and Black Widow (Johansson). Apparently, Downey has yet to fully master the controls on his costume because Downey hit the "wrong"button and hit Scarlett directly in the face.

It seems Scarlett did something out of a Looney Tunes bit, "staggering backwards, losing her balance and falling off the platform where the actors were waiting to shoot their scene."

Reportedly crew rushed to her aid and Downey was beside himself. The source told National Enquirer magazine: ‘Robert, who couldn’t help because he literally can’t move in that iron suit, was beside himself – he kept apologizing. "

Apparently Scarlett is tough as nails as she simply bounced up after a few moments and even cracked a smile.

The Avengers is an upcoming American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, based upon the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which crosses over several Marvel superhero films including Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). The film is written and directed by Joss Whedon and features an ensemble cast, which includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Cobie Smulders. The Avengers tells the story of Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., who recruits Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America to save the world from destruction.

Development of The Avengers began when Marvel Studios received a grant from Merrill Lynch in April 2005. After the success of the film Iron Man, Marvel announced that The Avengers would be released in July 2011. With the signing of Scarlett Johansson in March 2009, the film was pushed back for a 2012 release. Whedon was brought on board in April 2010 and rewrote the screenplay that was originally written by Zak Penn.
