Scarlett also interviewed with CanMag about her character, describing the two vastly different sides she gets to explore in Iron Man 2.
“I think that the character is sort of a shape shifter… It was sort of like playing two different characters. One character is more kind of mysterious, I don’t want to say submissive, but she’s blending in with the crowd I suppose. The other part of this character is someone who is assertive and knows their sh*t. She’s able to just say, ‘I’m going to fight this head on.’ For me, being able to have that kind of feeling, being able to be competent enough to sell it, that this is somebody who is going to kick some ass and don’t for a second doubt that she’s going to follow through with the punch. It was a challenge for me but Jon [Favreau] was incredible. He really supported me with this.”
She also spoke a bit about working with Marvel Studios on a massive project, but more than that, signing up with a multi-picture contract that may allow her to be a part of Marvel’s future stories.
“I think as an actor, I think certainly in this particular situation, and I know that Robert [Downey Jr]. has had this, you kind of become invested in these films as much as the studio is and you’re able to develop your character with the studio and have a lot of input in that sense. So to me that’s exciting because rarely as an actor do we get to take it to that level. We see a beginning, a middle and an end hopefully and then one two or so segment and then you’re done with it. But, for me to be able to build something and to think about this, especially a character that’s had so many different kinds of histories and paths, to think about where she might go and where we kind of find out more about her, I feel like that’s something that you invest yourself in and work for.”
As for the movies actually in development, I’m still holding out hope on the Hulk front and will be looking for Ed Norton having a small cameo in Iron Man 2 (and maybe Chris Hemsworth too!) and him coming back for The Avengers. As for Black Widow, look out for her as Iron Man 2 kicks off next summer, opening May 7, 2010.
What do you think of Natasha Romanoff’s feature film future?
