In issue 215 of Total Film magazine, Scarlett Johansson tells us that she was initially unsure about making Avengers Assemble because it seemed like such a “ridiculous” idea.
Inside the issue – which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad – Johansson reveals that she was initially sceptical about Marvel’s grand plan after making Iron Man 2.
“The idea of it is ridiculous!” she says. “When they told me that was the next step, I said, ‘Oh, no! That is a disaster! You saw Thor, you saw Captain America, you saw Iron Man, those things don’t go together!’”
Since starring in the third highest-grossing film of all time (Avengers, ahead of this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier), she’s come around.
Revealing that she’s expecting the script for Avengers: Age Of Ultron “any day now”, she promises “when it comes you can guarantee it’ll be read in 25 minutes”.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on 28 March 2014.
