Scarlett Johansson was geeked out for `Iron Man` role

London: Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she was so eager to land a role in `Iron Man 2` that she absorbed herself in comic books to impress producers.

"I was a huge fan of the first movie and was quite `geek-ed` out at being part of the second one. I just wanted to be a part of `Iron Man` so I really researched the comic books and came in with some ideas of my own about how to develop the character. I see her as being determined and ambitious," quoted her as saying.

"I love everything about this character. She`s a total bada*s. I love every detail from her fabulous outfit to the wonderful hair. I mean, there`s nothing not to like about the character.

"She`s very bad and I think it`s rare that we get to see these sort of super heroines bought to the screen, where they`re really kicking some major a*s, which she does," she added.

The 25-year-old actress landed the role of Russian spy Black Widow after actress Emily Blunt dropped out because of scheduling conflicts.
