Jessica Chastain Wants Scarlett Johansson Superhero Movie



The Oscar-nominated American actress Jessica Chastain told The Wrap that she would like to see a Scarlett Johansson-led Marvel superhero movie.

Apart from wondering why such a movie hasn’t been made yet, Chastain has also criticized the movie industry for its lack of major parts for women.

“Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don’t understand it, why is it taking so long for this? This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in movies.”

Chastain added that Johansson’s recent movie Lucy beat Hercules on its opening weekend. She has pointed out that Lucy has grossed $217 million worldwide on a $40 million budget.

“She shows that she kicks ass, she’s a great actress. To me, it’s a no brainer. You want to make money, put Scarlett Johansson in her own superhero movie!”

Scarlett is to reprise her role of Russian heroine Black Widow in the next Avenger film, Age of Ultron, due out on 1 May 2015.
