During the UK premiere of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Scarlett Johansson expressed her desire for a standalone movie featuring her Marvel character, the Black Widow. The actress believes that her character has the potential to lead her own film separate from the Avengers franchise.
The 29-year-old woman, rumored to be expecting her first child, flaunted her figure in a bright red Vivienne Westwood dress. She paired the outfit with fierce Christian Louboutin heels in an animal print and complemented the look with matching red lipstick and nail polish.
As she walked down the blue carpet at Westfield London, her fellow cast members Chris Evans, who played Steve Rogers/Captain America, and Samuel L Jackson, who portrayed Nick Fury, were by her side.
Having played the iconic character of Natasha Romanoff or Black Widow in three films since 2010’s Iron Man 2, the actress expressed her desire to see her Russian spy alter-ego take center stage in her own movie.
The Winter Soldier, a popular superhero movie character, is none other than Captain America’s sidekick. This film features the talented Chris Evans as Captain America and the equally skilled Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier. The storyline follows Captain America and his team as they attempt to take down the evil forces attempting to destroy society. The action-packed scenes and emotional drama make for a fantastic viewing experience that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
She expressed her desire for a standalone movie featuring the character Black Widow and stated that if fans want it, she wants it too. She also mentioned that they will request for it from Marvel. Johansson, who will reprise her role as Romanoff in Avengers: Age of Ultron, was worried about the fit of her iconic catsuit. However, she was relieved when it zipped up perfectly.
The premiere of the latest Marvel film was graced by the presence of Hayley Atwell and Jenny Agutter, both renowned British actresses. Also in attendance were Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/The Falcon), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier), and directors Anthony and Joe Russo. Throngs of fans eagerly awaited the arrival of these celebrities, patiently enduring long hours just to catch a glimpse of their idols.
Agutter, who is presently playing a role in the popular BBC series Call The Midwife, expressed her delight upon being offered the opportunity to partake in the project. She eagerly accepted the offer, stating that she enjoyed the adrenaline rush associated with performing action scenes and stunts. She also added that this aspect of film-making was completely different from what she experienced on Call The Midwife.
The individual who is 61 years of age expressed their admiration for working alongside Robert Redford, stating that he is a charming and easy-going individual that made the experience pleasant. Mackie, who was also fresh to the Marvel universe, mentioned that they had a feeling that this movie was going to be extraordinary from the first moment they read the script and was pleased with how it turned out. Stan felt like he was returning home since the first movie was shot in London, and he was excited to be back again as he did not anticipate that he would be returning to the location.
