Scarlett Johansson is getting political. The actress is trying to help politician Scott Stringer become the mayor of New York. “I hope to get the Broadway community involved in this campaign,” Johansson told New York Post gossip column Page Six.
“Scott has always been an advocate for the arts and culture. People that are involved in the arts obviously have a vested interest in who is our next mayor … [and] allowing arts programs to be accessible to New Yorkers in the sense that it’s affordable for communities. We have a vested interest in that it’s our own private community as the entertainment industry.”
Meanwhile, Scarlett is proving
to be just as formidable as her Black Widow character on the Avengers set.
According to reports, Scarlett as apparently been demanding more action in the comic book movie which sees her kick-ass character reunited with Iron Man as well as other Marvel heroes including Captain America, Thor and Hulk.
“Scarlett is making a point of not being the token woman in the movie,” reports a source on the set.
“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!”
