With the upcoming Marvel movie sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron planned for release next year, there has been a lot of talk about the new characters we will see in the movie, which has been getting fans very excited for the release of the film. However, we should not forget the returning characters who made the first Avengers movie such a huge success, and the stars that play them.
Actress Scarlett Johansson plays the role of Black Widow in the Marvel movies and she will once again reprise her role for Avengers: Age of Ultron. The stars of the movie have already read the script for Avengers: Age of Ultron and they have been praising Joss Whedon for his work on it. Chris Hemsworth recently revealed how impressed he was with the script and now Scarlett has shared her views on it.
Johansson told Collider, "I was just amazed—Joss is something else, he really is. He locks himself away for God knows how long; I think he has the dark circles to prove it. [He] just came out with something totally solid. I was really impressed by his ability to make this ever-expanding Marvel universe feel very close-knit and cerebral and progressive. I mean this movie feels like the continuation of The Avengers, it doesn’t feel like a tag-on or the rehashed version or just ‘let’s throw a bunch of new characters in there and keep the thing alive.’ It really feels like the next step."
As well as seeing the return of Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth, we will also see the return of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner, to name just a few. Avengers: Age of Ultron will open on May 1, 2015 in both the US and the UK.
