London: Scarlett Johansson, who wears a tight leather catsuit as a sexy spy in her upcoming movie ‘Marvel Avengers Assemble’, has revealed that the outfit was getting her literally hot under the collar. Speaking from the set of the movie in New Mexico, the 27-year-old actress spilled behind-the-scenes secrets of the superhero sensation, which is due for release on April 26.
“Everybody on the film has their own uncomfortable costume situation. It’s like 800 degrees in mine. And it’s a one-piece and I have nothing underneath it,” a leading daily has quoted her as saying.
According to her, the costumes in ‘Marvel Avengers Assemble’ are the most daring of her career to date. She described the cast’s dressing process as “very surreal”.
“It was kind of an out-of-body experience. Like a dress-up, but to the extreme. Everybody looks incredibly uncomfortable until the cameras are rolling. Then we all look badass. And when the Avengers assemble, it feels like being a little kid. Then, cut! And we’re all like, ‘Arrgh, God, get this thing off me.’ As soon as everything is cut, everything comes off. All our costumes are unzipped, some air conditioning venting unit goes in, someone is having a wig removed... we all have our various things that we have to do to get comfortable,” she said.
‘Marvel Avengers Assemble’ tells the story of superspy Colonel Nick Fury and his international agency S.H.I.E.L.D. They bring together a team of superhumans and superheroes to save the earth from evil deity Loki and his army of villains. Her role forced her into a punishing physical regime which has left her in superb shape.
“There have been months of training and stunts and fighting. I will probably be in physical therapy for years. There’s a lot of hand-to-hand combat and a combination of different fighting styles — gymnastics, Muay Thai, boxing, kick-boxing, I do all that. And we use all kinds of stuff, knives, guns, all sorts,” she added.
