Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson is understood far and huge for her most iconic portrayal of Black Widow within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However, what many could also be unaware of is how the Iron Man 2 star was something however a fan of the identical superhero films that boosted her profession and earned her world fame.
In an earlier interview with Vanity Fair, Johansson revealed the way it was Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man that finally acquired her hooked to superheroes.
“I just loved it. I’d never really seen anything like it before. It was not particularly that I was a fan of superhero stuff, or that genre, but it seemed groundbreaking,” she stated.
“I wanted to work with Marvel. It seemed like an exciting place to be,” she added.
“I was a huge fan of the first movie and was quite ‘geek-ed’ out at being part of the second one.”
“I just wanted to be a part of Iron Man so I really researched the comic books and came in with some ideas of my own about how to develop the character. I see her as being determined and ambitious,” she added.
Johansson was finally roped in for the half after the makers’ first selection, Emily Blunt, turned it down.
Addressing the truth that she was the second selection for the movie, she advised Parade journal earlier this 12 months: “The best call you can receive is after you are rejected for something and then you get it. You appreciate it more. I’ve basically made a career out of being second choice.”
