Scarlett Johansson has been working hard on the set of Joss Whedon’s new film ‘The Avengers’ and one of her goals is to make sure that her character of the Black Widow doesn’t end up being just a love interest for someone.
So often films throw a female character into a movie as a token love interest, but Scarlett is making sure that same fate doesn’t befall the Black Widow. She has apparently been asking that more action scenes be included into the film to showcase the Black Widow as her own person rather than just there to support a male character.
A source on the set of ‘The Avengers’ filled in the details about Johansson’s fight for more screen time, saying;
“Scarlett is making a point of not being the token woman in the movie. She has had extra action scenes already but is still wanting more. She’s also been very reluctant to have her character be a love interest for the male heroes. Scarlett wants Black Widow to be on a level with the guys if not even more super!”
