Scarlett Johansson recently appeared on "The Goop Podcast" with Gwyneth Paltrow, where the two actresses reminisced about their time working together on Marvel movies. Paltrow, who played Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, kicked off the franchise in 2008's "Iron Man." Johansson, on the other hand, made her debut as Black Widow in "Iron Man 2." There were reports circulating at the time that the two actresses didn't get along on set, and Paltrow decided to address the rumors.
Paltrow asked Johansson, "Is it true that you and I didn't get along on 'Iron Man'?"Johansson responded, "Is that a rumor? You were so nice to me on that movie. I was so scared. You were so kind! You could've been mean, but you weren't. I was completely out of my comfort zone. I had never done anything like that before. And you already had such deep friendships."Paltrow assured Johansson that the cast of "Iron Man" was thrilled to have her on board, saying, "We were all so excited that you were there. I was really happy to have another woman around."Johansson chuckled and replied, "You kept telling me that. And I definitely felt it later on. When I did 'Avengers,' I was one of the few women... it was like a big sausage party."
The conversation then turned to the possibility of returning to the Marvel franchise in the future. However, neither actress seemed particularly interested. Johansson's character, Black Widow, was killed off in "Avengers: Endgame," but she did return for a standalone prequel movie.
As the interview wrapped up, it was clear that both actresses had fond memories of their time in the Marvel universe and were grateful for the opportunities they had been given. While their Marvel journeys may have come to an end, the impact they made on fans will certainly be remembered for years to come.
