In a recent episode of The Jess Cagle Podcast on SiriusXM, Scarlett Johansson spoke candidly about her friendship with Chris Evans, her co-star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She also revealed that her husband, Colin Jost, is not willing to practice scenes with her. Additionally, the actress spoke about the delay of her highly-anticipated standalone Marvel film, Black Widow, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During a podcast interview, Scarlett Johansson revealed the tight bond she shares with fellow Marvel movie star, Chris Evans, who portrays Captain America. Johansson has been playing Black Widow since 2010 and went on to share that she has known Evans for even longer than that. The two initially worked together in the movie, The Perfect Score when Johansson was just 17 years old. Their friendship grew over conversations about relationships, family, and other people’s romantic lives, creating a “big sister” dynamic that is similar to their on-screen characters. While Johansson’s husband, Colin Jost, is also an actor, he doesn’t rehearse scenes with her.
The performer revealed that she and Chris have had a close relationship for a while now. They initially worked together on a movie named The Perfect Score, during which she was still a teenager of 17 years old.
Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans have maintained a good relationship for years, even after their collaboration in the blockbuster movie Avengers: Infinity War in 2018. Their teamwork didn’t start there as they also worked together in the teen comedy film The Perfect Score back in 2004 alongside Erika Christensen, Bryan Greenberg, Darius Miles, and Leonardo Nam. The story followed a group of students from New Jersey who tried to steal the answers to the SAT exam. However, they were destined for greater things as they later played superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Scarlett Johansson portrayed the fierce Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff while Chris Evans brought Captain America/Steve Rogers to life. Fans of the Marvel franchise are eagerly awaiting Johansson’s solo movie Black Widow, which has been in production for a few years. Despite being delayed due to the pandemic, the film is finally ready to hit theaters.
Scarlett revealed that she has a tight bond with Chris, which resembles that of siblings. They can chat for extended periods on diverse subjects, much like how Nat and Steve interact. Despite Chris being a bit older, their relationship remains strong. However, Scarlett’s husband Colin Jost is not interested in knowing any spoilers about her upcoming film. Therefore, she abstains from sharing any information with him. Even though they were both in London working on separate projects, Tom and Jerry and Scarlett’s movie, Colin still does not want to hear about her action-packed scenes.
Scarlett Johansson’s husband Colin Jost and fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are in for a surprise with the release of the new film Black Widow. Even though Colin is curious about Scarlett’s work, he has refused to rehearse scenes with her for fear of spoilers. Scarlett revealed that he always asks for a heads up before they read lines together. The story in Black Widow takes place after the events in Captain America: Civil War and before her character’s death in Avengers: Endgame. As the 24th movie in the franchise and the first in phase four, fans can catch it on the big screen starting July 9 or watch it on Disney+ on the same day.
The much-awaited film, Black Widow, is all set to release on July 9th, and will be available on both Disney+ and the big screen. Marvel fans can now choose to enjoy the latest addition to the franchise from the comfort of their own homes or opt for a cinematic experience at the theater.
