She stars in the latest Marvel film Black Widow. Scarlett Johansson, 35, was spotted heading to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in New York evening to promote the new stand-alone film. The actress appeared in good spirits as she waved to fans as she headed inside the studios.
For her evening look, she wore a purple turtleneck blouse with black detailing. She paired the look with a patent-leather high-waisted skirt and black sheer tights. Scarlett looked darling with her blonde hair pulled back in a subtle updo and long gold earrings. Following the announcement that Black Widow was getting her time to shine with the trailer, the new trailer shows the super hero in her early days as Natasha Romanoff before the world ended.
‘I used to have nothing,’ she says opening up the trailer. ‘Then I got this job, this family, but nothing lasts forever.’ This will be the first movie in the series since the finale, Avengers: Endgame in which her character dies. Back in November, she opened up about her choice of roles in her industry during the Actress Roundtable event.
‘It’s so different now, the climate is so different now,’ she revealed. ‘The opportunities for women of every age to play all different types of people.’ ‘I feel when I was working in my early 20s and even in my late teens/early 20s, I felt that I sort of got, somehow, typecast.
She continued: ‘Which, I guess, at the time seemed OK to everyone. It was another time. Even though it wasn’t a part of my own narrative, it was kind of crafted for me by probably a bunch of dudes in the industry. And I guess that worked then, but it was really difficult for me to try to figure out how to get out of being an ingenue or the other woman, because it was never anything that I had intended.’
She went on to talk about her journey through theater, which is what gave her a kick start back in 2009 in Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge. ‘It’s amazing how theater is limitless,’ she explained. ‘Even though it was terrifying, it was liberating because I actually felt that every night I had the opportunity to change the narrative.’
