Looks like Scarlett Johansson better start taking chair Ju Jitsu classes again!
Avengers' writer and director, Joss Whedon, confirmed recently at Comic-Con that ScarJo will play a "huge part" in the upcoming sequel!
The thought of getting to see the Avengers 2 gives us a huge part! Watching a ripped green guy running around without a shirt? We know it's coming out in 2015, but can we pre-order tickets now??
"Natasha (Black Widow) is a huge part of the sequel because you do want to concentrate on the people who don't have their own franchises. Although she's in [Captain America 2] and she's great."
Uh, Scarlett's always great!
