With her latest film Ghost In The Shell hitting theaters this week, Scarlett Johansson has been busy promoting the anime remake. This week, she appeared on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, and she was asked questions regarding her upcoming role in Avenger: Infinity War.
During the interview, she confirmed that her character, Black Widow, would be meeting the Guardians of the Galaxy crew. While that fact was a given, considering Infinity War would see almost every character in the MCU meeting, it’s nice to know that we have a confirmation. Beyond that, Johansson spoke on what her character would think when she met them.
“Somebody said to me the other day, they were like, ‘Is Black Widow ready for the Guardians of the Galaxy?’ The last time aliens descended on New York I think my character was like, ‘Alright, I’ve seen it all. I’m good.’ So I don’t even think like a talking tree will faze her at this point.”
Being that Groot is a national treasure at this point, it’s going to be great to see him speak with other members of the Avengers.
“As long as it feels true to me, then this conversation with another character is fine, even if it’s a tree.”
Johansson later spoke on how the universe has changed since her debut back in Iron Man 2.
“But certainly, reading the script, the universe has expanded to a point where it just… it’s like incomprehensible at this point I’m just like, ‘Okay, this is all happening,’”
Scarlett Johansson will next be seen in Anthony and Joe Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War. The film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson, and other members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.
