Scarlett Johansson wants more Avengers action

For those of you with fond memories of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow crushing necks between her thighs in Iron Man 2, we have good news!

Scarlett is reportedly insisting her Avengers character gets as many scrap scenes as the boys in Joss Whedon’s superhero spectacular.

"Scarlett is making a point of not being the token woman in the movie," says ShowbizSpy. "She has had extra action scenes already but is still wanting more. She's also been very reluctant to have her character be a love interest for the male heroes. Scarlett wants Black Widow to be on a level with the guys if not even more super!"

So, Scarlett wants her powerless Russian assassin to be even more super than a Norse god, a gamma-ray infused rage-beast, a mega-genius with laser-cannons strapped to his arms, and a star-spangled shield-flinging super-soldier.

Fair enough, we say.
