(BlackTree TV - Los Angeles) BlackTree TV sat down with the Black Widow and Hawkeye, known outside the comic-con world as Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner to talk about their new movie The Avengers. For both actors, this marks their second appearance in the series, with Jeremy making a blink of the eye appearance in Thor and Scarlett being introduced to us as the indelible sexy Russian spy Natasha Romanoff in Iron Man 2. We sat down to talk about all the work that had to go on behind the scenes to bring The Avengers to life.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), is one of the world’s greatest spies and quite possibly the world’s most skilled assassin. Armed with an extensive arsenal of specialized weapons like widow stings and cluster bombs, as well as a vast
repertoire of martial arts skills, Romanoff’s unique talents make her one of Director Fury’s top agents and an integral part in assembling The Avengers.
Scarlett Johansson on Black Widow: “Black Widow is all business. She’s sort of in a grey area. In a sense, she’s been fighting the good fight despite her dark background. But she’s committed because she has to be and her moral ground is more dutiful. She’s militaristic in that way; that’s how she knows right from wrong.”
One of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most elite agents, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), code-‐named Hawkeye, is the greatest living marksman on Earth. Armed with his weapon of choice, the recurve bow, Hawkeye fires his arsenal of custom-‐augmented arrows, specialized for any number of specific situations, with perfect precision. With the
potential for global catastrophe on the horizon, he employs his amazing combat skills to fight alongside The Avengers.
