Jon Favreau unveiled “Iron Man 2″ footage at Comic-Con on Saturday that showed the the Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke brandishing electric whips, and War Machine. But the character catching everyone’s eye is Scarlett Johansson in her black leather catsuit playing “Black Widow”. Read more and see video below.
Actress Scarlett Johansson was asked whose side the Black Widow was on. Scarlett stated, “I don’t know,” while saying she’s neither a superhero nor a supervillain. “I think you’ve just got to call me a super shape-shifter, I suppose.
“I’m kicking some major ass — so I would say ‘major’ is the amount of ass I kick,” laughed Johansson, who endured months of blood, sweat and egg-white omelettes to pull off the role and do all her own stunts.
“Whose ass do I kick?” she grinned, choosing her words carefully. “Well, you’re just going to have to wait and see. You don’t really want to know, do you?”
When asked about her favorite scene in the movie, Scarlett replied:
“Well, I have to say all my stunt sequences, because those are the ones I know best,” she reasoned. “I’ve got to fight for them. I’ve got to be my own cheerleader. So, all the Black Widow sequences, of course.”
Scarlett was also asked about her own superhero husband, Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds is playing the Green Lantern and Deadpool, and Johansson the Black Widow.
She was asked if there were any superhero rivalries going on at home?
“[Our characters are] living in two completely different universes,” she grinned, insisting that there won’t be a “Deadpool vs. Widow” movie any time soon. “Never the two shall meet, I would say.”
