Scarlett Johansson Says Avengers: Age of Ultron Screenplay Is Dark and Dry
Scarlett Johansson, who will make her fourth appearance as Black Widow in Avengers: Age of Ultron, recently sat down with Parade to discuss her personal plans for the future. During the interview, she revealed that she received a copy of Joss Whedon's script for the upcoming superhero sequel.
This is what she said when asked what fans should expect from the project.
"Oh boy! Well, we can expect the Avengers. Joss, again, is back, wrote the script, and is directing. I think the script is dark and it's dry, it's got this amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humor. Obviously the script is very cerebral. It doesn't lose that exciting comic book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it's smart and it feels like the next installment. It doesn't feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plotlines are moving forward. It's deep and I think that's why people really respond to the Marvel universe, because the films are fun and exciting and have all that flashy stuff, but there's a gravity to them. People can expect that gravity this time around."
