Since the arrival of women in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Scarlett Johnson is known to be one of the oldest even if just for a supporting role. It has been observed that from 2010 to 2015, Scarlett has been the only lady leading the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She was in a major role in all these five years. The Iron Man and the first Avenger series saw Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, serving in a supporting role but she never really was a part of the core group of superheroes. Another supporting actress was Cobie Smulders, who was seen in the first team-up movie in 2012. All these years, Scarlett Johansson was the only lady leading the movie with all the males namely the heroes: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo. Finally in 2015, Elizabeth Olsen joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wanda Maximoff in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and at last Scarlett was accompanied by another woman.

Recently on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show”, Scarlett Johansson was having a talk on ‘Black Widow’ with Jess Cagle and she also mentioned some of her co-stars who she worked with in the past for MCU. She was asked for her cents on the female co-star, Elizabeth Olsen about how she felt after her joining MCU. Johansson added nothing but sweet details about her feelings towards Elizabeth; she said, “It was so great when Lizzy [Olsen] came on because yeah we had Cobie [Smulders], it was basically the two of us who kind of held down the fort,” the actress remembered. “And then when Lizzie came on, it was semi-balanced out because it was very heavy on the testosterone for a very long time. Now, [it was] like calibrated, finally caught up.”

Scarlett also mentioned that Elizabeth apart from her professional proficiency has a really great personality, she even called out Elizabeth to be very ‘Funny’ and ‘fantastic’. It must have been very intimidating for Elizabeth to be casted along with the well-built stars of the already popular franchise, but she was able to work greatly and had a positive impact on everyone. Johansson added to Elizabeth’s character as Wanda Maximoff, “I was like, ‘wow this is like an amazing thing you’ve created, this mystical, beautiful thing that had such strong, like, feminine energy.’ It was much needed,” as Elizabeth ‘Fit in Perfectly’ for this role.
