Scarlett Johansson is making the rounds to promote her latest film, Ghost in the Shell, and naturally people are using the opportunity to ask her questions about her involvement with Avengers: Infinity War. While on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, Johansson spoke about Black Widow’s reaction to meeting the Guardians of the Galaxy:
“Somebody said to me the other day, they were like, ‘Is Black Widow ready for the Guardians of the Galaxy?’ The last time aliens descended on New York I think my character was like, ‘Alright, I’ve seen it all. I’m good.’ So I don’t even think like a talking tree will faze her at this point.”
It makes sense that Black Widow would meet the Guardians with her usual calm demeanor. After all, her last almost-boyfriend was a giant green rage monster. While everyone else is still startled by these things, Romanoff has gone through enough at this point that the Guardians probably would seem like just another batch of weirdos.
“As long as it feels true to me, then this conversation with another character is fine, even if it’s a tree.”
Seeing Groot talk to the various members of the Avengers will be a sight to behold, and we’re all curious to see how each of the Avengers will react to Rocket. Still, talking alien trees and raccoons are a far cry from the MCU’s more grounded beginnings, a fact that Johansson pointed out in her interview:
“But certainly, reading the script, the universe has expanded to a point where it just… it’s like incomprehensible at this point I’m just like, ‘Okay, this is all happening,’”
