Robert Downey Jr Humiliated Scarlett Johansson, Said Black Widow Scenes in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Were Dumb – “We can fast forward through the dumb stuff”

Robert Downey Jr Humiliated Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson is well-known by fans for her role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Johansson’s character, Black Widow first appeared in Iron Man 2 back in 2010. Ever since that the Lucy star kept reprising her character and impressed fans with her brilliant acting. Black Widow who emerged as a strong female protagonist failed to impress Iron Man with her action moves. Robert Downey Jr. remarked Black Widow’s arc was unnecessary in Avengers: Endgame

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is the Marvel’s Underdog

Black Widow, who was the only female and founding member of the Avengers, has done remarkable work as a supportive side character until her solo movie release. It is not a hidden fact that in terms of popularity, Johansson’s Black Widow has always been undermined. Unlike other Avengers Johansson and Jeremy Renner had to wait quite a long time before they could feature in their own solo films or series.

Johansson, who has struggled with her great efforts to show her significance across her Marvel releases, has been neglected and unattended by fans. Though Johansson’s role had its weightage still the character failed to enjoy the same amount of stardom with respect to its other Avengers members such as Iron Man, Captain America, and many more who had their marvel singles before the team assembled to shoot 2012 The Avengers

Robert Downey Jr. Mocked Scarlett Johansson’s Role in Avengers: Endgame

Scarlett Johansson’s character Black Widow was declared unnecessary by RDJ. Robert Downey Jr. on Jimmy Kimmel Live shared his plans to binge-watch Avengers: Endgame in a loop on Easter Sunday. Kimmel questioned that he will only be able to watch two or three times as the movie has a duration of 3 hours and 2 minutes. RDJ’s response indeed revealed his thoughts on Johansson’s MCU character. Iron Man star referred to Black Widow’s character arc as dumb stuff. Something which can be skipped while watching the movie. 

“We can fast-forward through the dumb stuff. I don’t know. Your (Scarlett Johansson) character arc.”

Though Johansson in the aftermath commented that she will make sure to get that back to RDJ. It seems like fans will see Iron Man v/s Black widow soon enough. With the self-sacrifice of Black Widow at the end of the Avengers: Endgame, to procure the Soul stone in order to defeat Thanos, Johansson’s role impressed many with her excellent acting. It is unclear if fans will be able to see Johansson once again reprising her hit role of Black Widow. Many yearn to see Johansson’s Black Widow enjoying major screen time.

Till then fans can enjoy Johansson’s Black Widow which can be streamed on Disney+.
