There has been a lot said about the upcoming Marvel movie The Avengers and we have seen a lot of clips and trailers. One of the clips shows Scarlett Johansson in a fight sequence and it appears that one of the fight sequences from The Avengers really took its toll on the actress.
Johansson explained to MTV News, “The stunt sequence that I've been the most proud of is probably my fight with... Actually, I don't know if I can say! Can I say? I don't know if I can. All I can say is that I had to fight someone else in this film, and they beat the crap out of me in stunt rehearsals. I have to say I could not believe it."
She added, “I was like, 'Can you hold it back, OK? You know, I'm trying to work it out here. I've got smaller muscles than you.' I was dragged across the [floor]. When we finally finished [filming] that scene I was just happy to be alive."
Scarlett continued, "We all took a pretty big beating. I would have to say either [Black] Widow or Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). We're on the ground so we're fighting hand-to-hand and it hurts."
The Avengers is set to be released on April 26 in the UK and May 4 in the US.
