Scarlett Johansson Talks Avengers, Black Widow Movie

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.

Says Johansson:

“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…

    I think that we all need to see how well or bad her performance is in Iron Man 2 before we want to start casting her again just yet. Johansson is extremely hot but I still think that Emily Blunt was made for the role. I would personally like to see Blunt cast for Iron Man 3 & The Avengers. Johannson is pretty much established,I’d like to see Blunt get her first “real” break by doing Black Widow. 20th Century Fox could’ve worked something out so she could have done both roles for Marvel and Fox. Fox totally sucks. Good luck to Scarlet but I say yes to Emily Blunt as Black Widow,how it was meant to be in the first place.
