Scarlett Johansson showcases her extreme awesomeness as Black Widow in the new, and final, Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer.
As Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson is absolutely phenomenal, of course, but she seems especially amazing in this upcoming film.
This trailer, especially, seems to focus on Scarlett Johansson and her abilities.
The trailer shows Scarlett Johansson doing amazing things. There's a thing with flying kicks, a thing on a motorcycle. It's just really, really amazing.
Just watch it. Unless you prefer not to see any more spoilers before Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out May 1st.
Scarlett Johansson once said of being Black Widow, “The most important aspect of my job as an actor, who’s been carrying this character from Iron Man to The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is to keep consistency with the character’s arc and have the character’s evolution be one that is cohesive."
She added, "You want to feel like the character is growing as opposed to just staying the same.”
Well, Scarlett Johansson has kept Black Widow consistently awesome from the beginning, for sure. That may have been because she did her research early on.
Scarlett Johansson recalled her first encounter with director Joss Whedon, saying, “In my first meeting with Joss, I had the chance to talk about Natasha’s backstory and her sordid past and I wanted to make sure that she stayed sort of gray, not really black or white. What’s exciting and compelling about the character is that she’s not Cap [Captain America]; she’s not righteous."
She added of Black Widow, "She was in S.H.I.E.L.D. because it’s where she belonged, not necessarily that it was the right place to be. Now we find The Avengers in business as usual mode but it’s changing. So it’s my job to make sure that Natasha, through that change, stays true to the Natasha that I started with in The Avengers.”
So exciting! I can't wait to see Scarlett Johansson in Avengers: Age of Ultron! Can you?
