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.
