Scarlett Johansson Suggests THE AVENGERS Is "Much Darker Than What People Expect!"

Scarlett Johansson Suggests THE AVENGERS Is "Much Darker Than What People Expect!"

The actress was promoting her new movie We Bought a Zoo, and during the interview she describes Joss Whedon's The Avengers as constant ass-kicking.

Scarlett spoke with Brad Blanks and he was able to fire off a few questions about Marvel's much anticipated superhero team-up movie.

“It’s constant ass-kicking.”

Marvel's The Avengers picks up when an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security. And Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. With director Joss Whedon at it's helm, and an ensemble cast including Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Chris Hemsworth (Thor Odinson), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Clark Gregg (Agt. Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), with Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig), the film releases worldwide May 4, 2012!

Yeah right!
redleaf - 12/20/2011, 12:33 PM
Wait she said she didn't see anything except for the trailer, then how does she know it's a lot darker?
REDSTORM - 12/20/2011, 12:34 PM
Constant Ass Kicking isn't always a good thing...It sounds like Transformers.... :/
hench - 12/20/2011, 12:37 PM
constant ass kicking doesn't make something darker
RunDTC - 12/20/2011, 12:37 PM
I'd love for her to kick my ass. ;)
JDUKE25 - 12/20/2011, 12:38 PM's gonna make that quick bright beach scene even brighter and more painful to my eyes.
er101 - 12/20/2011, 12:38 PM
Crossing my fingers that it turn out well
GodzillaKart - 12/20/2011, 12:41 PM
@Redleaf: Well, she has seen the script.
GodzillaKart - 12/20/2011, 12:42 PM
I'm sure the action will be great. What I want is a great story/acting/character-team development.
TimelessUnknown - 12/20/2011, 12:43 PM
I really doubt it. Their formula has been to have a simple, easy to understand story with tons of explosions and trying to bring the fun of a comic to life. Not expecting "Dark and gritty". Still think it's gonna be a great movie though.
luckylu - 12/20/2011, 12:44 PM
@nomis- i doubt that you doubt that i doubt it lol
HellsHammer - 12/20/2011, 12:48 PM
well compared to 'We bought a Zoo' Im sure anything is dark
NeoBaggins - 12/20/2011, 12:49 PM
@redleaf Awesome bullshit catch. I salute you.
dahamma - 12/20/2011, 12:53 PM
@Redleaf, well,....she is a major character in the ..she had a script....
lntrn8 - 12/20/2011, 12:54 PM
will watch it. But really think these soundbites are in response to recent TDKR campaigns.
TheStranger - 12/20/2011, 12:55 PM
She has read the script redleaf lol
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 12/20/2011, 12:56 PM
Constant a**-kicking? Hmmmmmm.......Sounds good to me! Bring it on, 2012!!!

Stay EPIC, my friends!
luckylu - 12/20/2011, 12:59 PM
im ok with constant ass kicking considering we have had 4 movies for character development.
brewtownpsych - 12/20/2011, 1:03 PM
Will we see her knockers, that's the question
bakongo - 12/20/2011, 1:07 PM
By the trailer we can see that she does not know what "darker" means.
Minghagz - 12/20/2011, 1:07 PM
I think I'd rather see Scarjo get gangbanged
RyanLantern77 - 12/20/2011, 1:09 PM
Says the bitch who doesn't know how much of the movie she is in
Minghagz - 12/20/2011, 1:12 PM
I don't need "darker" for a good movie. I don't know why this bitch is reaching?
I doubt it will be "much darker than what people expect" anyway.
Show me some Hulk action in the next trailer. I'm tired of waiting.
Spidey91 - 12/20/2011, 1:12 PM
*pretentious snob accent*
pffft,preposterous. where does she think she's in? The Dark Knight Rises? ha ha,I'd say this is quite amusing my fellow users *adjust monocle and sips cup of tea* :P

I believe her,Avengers will be epic,E-P-I-C.

Villians Please Other Than Loki
ManOfKrypton - 12/20/2011, 1:14 PM
I just had to laugh, especially since this follows the release of TDKR trailer.... I very much doubt The Avengers will be dark. I expect a fun popcorn film and that's about it.
Spidey91 - 12/20/2011, 1:30 PM

did you watched it? where? send me the link plz! :D
MassExecutions - 12/20/2011, 1:33 PM
Ever major character has already had their origin told. They better darn well be able to get some more action in!
WellDrawn - 12/20/2011, 1:38 PM
Just because a film is darker, doesn't neccesarilly make it better. Exhibit A:
Moonwalker1991 - 12/20/2011, 1:42 PM
"Darker?" I highly doubt that. Though I'll take "Constant Ass-kicking." I mean after watching TDKR trailer, Avengers doesn't fit the concept of "Darker". At all. If anything, The Avengers will come in second to TDKR in 2012. Maybe.
MarkV - 12/20/2011, 1:50 PM
These asses aren't going to kick themselves, people!
Priest - 12/20/2011, 1:53 PM
Some of you here seem to hate The Avengers. Please tell me why?
