Scarlett Johansson Talks Black Widow’s Dark Past in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The upcoming follow-up to the Avengers has dark times ahead for the team, especially with Black Widow. This may give fans a chance to explore the Avenger’s dark past, according to Scarlett Johansson.

Speaking with W Magazine, Johansson discussed what made her attracted to play the role of Natasha Rominoff and her alter ego Black Widow.

People were surprised that I wanted to play a comic book heroine. But I loved Iron Man, and I met with Marvel to see what was possible. I had done my research, and the Black Widow character resonated with me. She is dark and has faced death so many times that she has a deep perspective on the value of life.

The actress also teased what fans can expect with Black Widow in Avengers: Age of Ultron. “In the sequel, you learn more about the sadness in her past. I think of her that way. Black Widow is a superhero, but she’s also human. She’s small, but she’s strong. It’s hard not to admire her.”
