Scarlett Johansson On Black Widow's Supporting Role In CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 And Beyond
Acknowledging her role in The Avengers sequel, the Black Widow actress explains how Captain America The Winter Soldier differs from Iron Man 2, though she plays a supporting role in both. Check it out!
The Huffington Post caught up with Scarlett Johansson yesterday to discuss her new partnership with SodaStream International Ltd, and amid the interview, the actress ended up talking about playing Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow as a supporting character in both Iron Man 2 and this summer's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. “My first Marvel film was Iron Man 2 and then we did The Avengers and then Chris Evans and I did Cap 2, but I think that film, there's a couple of new characters,” she replied when asked how the Marvel sequels differ. “The Falcon is a new character in that, and of course Sebastian Stan is kind of continuing his character, obviously he's playing the Winter Soldier. But these characters really kind of take on something bigger than they've ever seen, so I think it's something that they can't do without each other. In that sense, we were in it, kind of neck-and-neck, and it's a bigger responsibility. But then again, even in "Avengers 2," we all play in it, it's not like, "Great, I'll be booking, like, two days a week and then be eating sandwiches the rest of the week." No, it's on. We all are fighting in it together, we're all fighting our own battles and our own demons and it's a lot of dramatic work, and the physical part of it, so the films all have their own challenges, but it's fun.”
Speaking of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, for which Scarlett Johansson has received her copy of Joss Whedon's script, her co-star Mark Ruffalo recently revealed that he'll start shooting the anticipated sequel in April despite principal photography starting in March. Also, Latino Review's Elmayimbe has revealed an interesting tidbit about his role as Bruce Banner aka The Hulk. What do you think?
