Scarlett Johansson Teases BLACK WIDOW's Dark Past In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

"I had done my research, and the Black Widow character resonated with me. She is dark and has faced death so many times that she has a deep perspective on the value of life."

Marvel's Avengers: Age  of Ultron opens in US theaters in just a little over two months and if the trailers and other footage released for Joss Whedon's Avengers follow-up is any indication; you can expect to see a lot more of Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Rominoff aka the Black Widow.  Speaking to W Magazine, Johansson discussed why she was attracted to the role of Black Widow and teased what fans can expect to see in Age of Ultron. "People were surprised that I wanted to play a comic book heroine. But I loved Iron Man, and I met with Marvel to see what was possible. I had done my research, and the Black Widow character resonated with me. She is dark and has faced death so many times that she has a deep perspective on the value of life. In the sequel, you learn more about the sadness in her past. I think of her that way. Black Widow is a superhero, but she’s also human. She’s small, but she’s strong. It’s hard not to admire her."
 

Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in US theaters on May 1.
