Scarlett Johansson recently opened up about her close friendship with Marvel co-star Chris Evans in a podcast interview. The actress, known for her role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealed that she has been friends with Evans since they worked together on the movie "The Perfect Score" when she was just 17 years old.
Johansson shared that she and Evans have spent a lot of time talking about various topics, including relationships, families, and other people's relationships. She described their dynamic as a sort of big sister-little brother relationship, even though Evans is a few years older than her. Their bond has continued throughout their work in the Marvel films, where they both portray iconic superheroes.
Speaking about her highly anticipated solo film, "Black Widow," Johansson expressed excitement for its release after years of anticipation and multiple delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The movie is set to hit theaters soon and will delve into the backstory of her character, Natasha Romanoff.
Interestingly, Johansson also mentioned that her husband, comedian and "SNL" star Colin Jost, refuses to practice scenes with her out of fear of spoilers. During the filming of "Black Widow" in London, Jost was shooting his own project, "Tom and Jerry," in the same city. While they enjoyed being together, Jost made it clear that he didn't want any details about the action sequences or plot. He even requested spoiler alerts before reading lines with her.
"Black Widow" is set after the events of "Captain America: Civil War" and before the character's demise in "Avengers: Endgame." It marks the 24th film in the Marvel franchise and the beginning of Phase Four in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
