Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson has revealed she would like her own Marvel spin-off movie, as she reprised the role of Black Widow for the fourth time.

The 30-year-old actress returns to play Russian spy Natasha Romanoff and her alter-ego in the latest comic-book adventure, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, alongside Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner.

"A Black Widow movie would be cool. I'm always happy to put the catsuit back on and looking at myself in all those mirrors," she said, ahead of the film's UK premiere tonight.

"What's great about playing this character is she's based in something deep and something I can hold on to. She's grounded and is very real. She has experienced a lot of trauma and she's never been able to make active choices for herself, and now she is ready for it."

The sequel to 2012's Avengers Assemble, once again directed by Joss Whedon, sees Johansson's character sharing some romantic moments with Bruce Banner and the Hulk, played by Ruffalo.


"I think one of the qualities of the Black Widow that I really love and am interested in is that she is at a place where she is able to maybe do something for herself and maybe, even have a relationship and open up in that way," she continued.

"There is this kind of greater calling that is pulling her."
