Robert Downey Jr. On BLACK WIDOW Movie: 'Doesn't Scarlett Johansson Deserve A Break?'
Revealing other solo movies he thinks should be spawned from his Avengers: Age of Ultron co-stars, Robert Downey Jr. weighs in on Scarlett Johansson's super spy getting her own spin-off! Check it out!
In response to recent discussions and the longtime demand for Scarlett Johansson to get her own Black Widow movie, USA Today recently asked the actress' Avengers co-star Robert Downey Jr. to weigh in on the possibility. “Doesn’t Scarlett deserve a break?” said the Iron Man star, laughing, while acknowledging that Johansson is about to become a mother. “Look, I think that the interesting thing particularly after [Guardians of the Galaxy] with Zoe [Saldana], even from the first Iron Man where Pepper was kind of this really – to me the Iron Man franchise would never have taken off without [Gwyneth] Paltrow. There’s something about her that grounded the story. She’s not your typical lady in a superhero movie, and then by Iron Man 3 she’s swallowing serums and putting on suits and kicking [butt] and all that stuff. It would be kind of more appropriate for a character that already was like a Black Widow [to lead a movie]. It just seems like whatever Scarlett does people want to go see it.” When USA Today mentioned how Johansson's Lucy movie beat Hercules at the box office, Robert Downey Jr. replied, “The funny thing is honestly at this point everyone deserves a franchise. I think Jeremy Renner is — when folks see the Avengers: Age of Ultron he’s just a rockstar, a badass. And Ruffalo is pumped. He does great (work). I’d like to hear them talk even more seriously about a Hulk franchise, because that’s been one of the toughest ones to get right. But I’m sure that my parent company is feeling expansive and and bold after the summer they’ve had.” What do you think?
Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.
