Joss Whedon Talks Black Widow in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Unlike the first film, writer/director Joss Whedon is dropping all kinds of bits of info regarding the upcoming Avengers sequel "Age of Ultron." He's spoken about the addition of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye's role in the film, the lack of Agent Coulson, and now how Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow will factor into the movie.

Speaking at a Nerd HQ Q&A (via MTV), Whedon had this to say:

"Natasha is a huge part of the sequel because you do want to concentrate on the people who don't have their own franchises. Although she in 'Cap 2,' [and] she's great. She was the most fun for me because she's not a hero, you know, and it's something that I read—and I feel bad that I can't remember who wrote the book—but it's in one of the books explaining, 'These guys are heroes, you are a spy. It's a different thing—it's a different skill set—and you don't have their moral high ground or any of that good stuff.' And that just makes her so interesting to me. So yeah, the stuff I've got going on with her in the second one is killer."

Johansson can be seen as Black Widow again in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is set for release April 4, 2014.

Featuring favorites from the first "Avengers" film and new Marvel characters never before seen on the big screen, Avengers: Age of Ultron will open in theaters on May 1, 2015.
