As of now, Scarlett Johansson (reprising her Iron Man 2 role as the Black Widow) is the only female cast member in director Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. Samuel L. Jackson, however, revealed last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” something is being done to change that.
Jackson will screen test with five actresses on Friday, all of which will compete for the role of Nick Fury’s “sidekick or something.” Heat Vision has revealed four of the names to be Morena Baccarin (Serenity), Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield), Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World).
Marvel has declined to comment if the role in question is that of the Wasp, as pegged by some early speculation. Whedon has been quoted as saying “the movie is only going to have one female Avenger, but she (Johansson) will not be the only female character.” Either way, it will be nice to get another woman in there to tone down the testosterone overload a bit.
Scarlett Johansson may have been Justin Long’s concert date to Wednesday’s Iron and Wine show in L.A. – but it was just a friendly outing.
“They’re friends,” Johansson’s rep tells PEOPLE of the pair, who joined another couple for the indie rock show at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. “They’ve worked together [on He’s Just Not That Into You]. They’re not dating.”
But they did seem to be having fun. The two were described as being “flirty” in a “friendly” way during the evening. After the show, Johansson slipped backstage to hang out with the band’s singer, Samuel Beam.
Another source reiterates that while Johansson, 26, is single ever since separating from her husband Ryan Reynolds, she has no romantic connection to Long.
“They’re just friends,” the source says. “They’ve known each other a long time.”
Just last month, Johansson was spotted hanging out in Texas with Long’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Drew Barrymore.

Just because Scarlett Johansson and Jason Sudeikis are both newly single, it doesn’t mean they are rushing into romance with each other.
Despite recent reports stating that the actress, 26, was on a date with January Jones’s ex-boyfriend Sudeikis, a rep for Johansson says the dinner was not romantic.
“Scarlett is not dating Jason nor is she dating anyone for that matter,” her rep tells PEOPLE of the rumored double date with Sudeikis, 35, and his former SNL cast mate Will Forte. “It was just a friendly outing amongst friends.”
Johansson and her husband Ryan Reynolds announced their separation last month, and filed for divorce shortly thereafter. They wed in Sept. 2008.
