Amid all the alpha males in The Avengers team, Scarlett Johansson has managed to hold her own as the deadly and sharp Black Widow. No wonder the actress enjoys a tremendous fan base among comic book lovers. Avengers: Age of Ultron is just a little over two months away from release and Johansson has revealed that the film will showcase more shades to her character.
"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," she said.
"Black Widow is a superhero, but she's also human. She's small, but she's strong. It's hard not to admire her," she added.
The upcoming film's trailers tease some pretty intense action-packed and emotional scenes for Black Widow so it definitely seems like she'll have a story arc of her own. And with Johansson set to reprise her character in the upcoming Marvel films including Captain America: Civil War, it remains to be seen how her storyline unfolds.
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theatres on 1 May, 2015.
