TotalFilm brings a smile this morning with the news that “Avengers” actress Scarlett Johansson says she wants more fight scenes in the Joss
Whedon-helmed superhero flick.
As the fanboys among you are well aware, the crimson-haired actress portrays S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Natasha Romanov, aka “The Black Widow,” and her fight scenes were among the highlights of the second “Iron Man” movie.
Here’s the skinny:
“Scarlett is making a point of not being the token woman in the movie,” says ShowbizSpy. “She has had extra action scenes already but is still wanting more. She’s also been very reluctant to have her character be a love interest for the male heroes. Scarlett wants Black Widow to be on a level with the guys if not even more super!”
Okay, it’s pretty slender. But more Johansson is always better than less. Here she is in Iron Man 2.
