'Black Widow' actress Scarlett Johansson, co-starring in director Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" recently revealed some insights about her character's strategic role in the new movie:
"I don't want to say she has a criminal mind, but she does in a way," said Johansson about 'Black Widow' in the new film.
"She's a super spy. Her ability to understand the complexity of the criminal mind, she uses that to her advantage...She's always using her experience in her sordid past to her advantage...She let's everyone else play with their big toys. And she gets some pretty good toys too, especially in 'Avengers 2'..."
"Of course in 'Avengers 2', it's very much a continuation, a maturation, of this universe, of this reality. It's not a sequel in the sense that it feels like a rehash. 'Hey, remember this old thing you loved in the first one? There's even more in the second!'
"It's nothing like that. Joss has lived with these characters now for a couple of years, and he is, as you can imagine, obsessed and tirelessly worked to help these characters evolve. Of course, I'm very fortunate that Joss has an affection for female characters in the work that he writes, and an understanding of them. To me, the Widow is a part of Joss. It really is. I think about Joss, I think about him being part Hulk and part Widow..."
"I think that in 'Avengers 2' you'll see her actively making some choices in her life, for better or worse. You know, when she splashes, the wave is big -- all these characters have that effect. So it'll be interesting to see what the audience thinks of what kind of wave we're sending their way..."
"...'Age Of Ultron' reportedly opens immediately after the 'Baron Von Strucker' post credit scene in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'.
"'The Avengers' as a team attack the 'Hydra' cell run by Strucker.
"He has the staff of 'Loki', 'Chitauri' weaponry and the corpse of a 'Leviathan'.
"After The Avengers complete their mission they head back to 'Avengers Tower' to party to celebrate together,taking turns trying to pick up 'Mjölnir', the hammer of 'Thor'..."
