Scarlett Johansson talks up Avengers 2 script

Describes it as “dark and dry”

Scarlett Johansson has been discussing the script for forthcoming sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and sounds mighty impressed with Joss Whedon’s work…

“I think the script is dark and it’s dry,” says Johansson. “It’s got this amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humour.”

“Obviously the script is very cerebral. It doesn’t lose that exciting comic book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it’s smart and it feels like the next instalment. It doesn’t feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plotlines are moving forward.”

“It’s deep and I think that’s why people really respond to the Marvel universe, because the films are fun and exciting and have all that flashy stuff, but there’s a gravity to them. People can expect that gravity this time around.”

Dark, eh? Sounds like we shouldn’t be surprised to see Joss wield that famous character-killing knife of his…

Directed by Whedon and featuring new additions James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 1 May 2015.

      Surely @QuietLife having your manhood out will lead to things happening between you and Mr K?

      Maybe me, Ben and SusanCraig's sister-in-law could get together. She makes enough from the sounds of things so could provide a bottle of Bollinger and cover the room.
