We've seen the images from W Magazine, now check out what Scarlett Johansson has to say about playing Black Widow.

“People were surprised that I wanted to play a comic book heroine. But I loved Iron Man, and I met with Marvel to see what was possible. I had done my research, and the Black Widow character resonated with me. She is dark and has faced death so many times that she has a deep perspective on the value of life. In the sequel, you learn more about the sadness in her past. I think of her that way. Black Widow is a superhero, but she’s also human. She’s small, but she’s strong. It’s hard not to admire her. She packs a big punch. We all try to fight the forces of evil. Like Black Widow, you have to keep trying. The challenge is always there.” 

Scarlett Johansson can next be seen as Black Widow in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron out May 1st and then in Captain America: Civil War out May 6, 2016.
