Apparently Scarlett Johansson likes wearing the skintight black costume (shown below) just as much as we like seeing her in it. In an interview with Ireland Online, which we’re assuming is located in Ireland (yes, we’re sharp like that), the vivacious and curvaceous Johansson is said to be “desperate” to play the role of Natasha Romanoff, aka The Black Widow again.
“She has many different incarnations and different storylines so I’m hoping she will be able to continue in that way. I’m hoping that if the fans like the character and support the character, we’ll see her again. I hope I get to come back and do it again. The character certainly comes back. We see that she does in the comics and certainly she is a big part of The Avengers. I don’t know if that is where it’s going to go but she is definitely a big part of The Avengers.”
Marvel Studios headman Kevin Feige has all but confirmed that Johansson has already been signed on to appear as the Black Widow in “The Avengers” movie, so I don’t think she has to worry about being asked to slip back into the skintight catsuit for, at least, one more time. And Johansson is right, the Black Widow does indeed figure into the Avengers in both Marvel continuity and in the Ultimates universe.
In any case, the idea of a Black Widow spin-off movie actually sounds pretty good. Then again, it could just be the sight of Scarlett Johansson in the Widow uniform that’s talking…
