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 a team of superheroes, appearing in magazines published by Marvel Comics. The team made its debut in The Avengers #1 (Sept. 1963), and was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist / co-plotter Jack Kirby, following the trend of super-hero teams after the success of DC Comics with the Justice League.

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. Production began in April 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico before moving to Cleveland, Ohio in August.

The Avengers is scheduled to be released on May 4, 2012 in the United States.

lol sounds like a scene from a Avengers parody. Iron Man knocking out Black Widow by pressing the wrong controls. But gotta hand it to Johansson she got back up, most actresses would have thrown diva like tantrum about it.

Nice. And yes, that is a very believeable scenario.

It's believable because Iron Man is so powerful and Black Widow is so not very powerful.

She must be gettin' too much screen time, so Downey decided she had to be taken out!
ElBicho - 9/26/2011, 5:19 AM
I knew she couldn't hanlde a shot to the face...
TheAmazingSpiderMan47 - 9/26/2011, 5:21 AM
Downey is wondering why he was last to see her nudes???
JackBauer - 9/26/2011, 5:28 AM
"I said I wanted mustard on this sandwich, Bitch!" :D
JackBauer - 9/26/2011, 5:30 AM
I thought most of his suit was CGI.

I call bullshit. Like there would be functioning, potentially dangerous, controls in that fake suit that RDJ would have to worry about. Gimme a break.
Not to mention, the "source" tells "National Inquirer"..laff!
silverdog - 9/26/2011, 6:21 AM

there you go honey, now go make iron man a sandwich.
BackwardGalaxy - 9/26/2011, 6:22 AM
It's not funny. It's not funny. It's so funny. I mean, it's not funny, guys.
dahamma - 9/26/2011, 6:22 AM
Bout time we heard news about the avengers about someone else other than Chris Evans, I was getting tired of him. This sounds funny though
longbowhunter - 9/26/2011, 6:23 AM
Hope they got it on camera. That would make a sweet special feature.
nordberg - 9/26/2011, 6:23 AM
I'm sure that the millions of $$ that she's getting for a few months work help ease the pain.
breakUbatman - 9/26/2011, 6:26 AM

marvel72 - 9/26/2011, 6:46 AM
