Scarlett Johansson says Avengers set felt like a ‘big sausage party’

Scarlett Johansson admitted on Gwyneth Paltrow's podcast that the Avengers set felt like a 'big sausage party'.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise actresses had a fun chat on a video call where they squashed a significant rumour from their Iron Man 2 shooting days.

Johansson made an appearance on her MCU fellow co-star, Paltrow's popular GOOP podcast on Tuesday, 18 April.
"We were so psyched you were there and I was so happy to have another woman around," Paltrow said (at the 15:23 mark).

"I know you kept telling me that," Johansson said with a laugh. "You were like 'Thank god!'"

"But then later on, I experienced that too," Johansson added, referring to subsequent Marvel films she starred in that did not feature many other female characters. "When I did 'Avengers' I was also one of the few."

She went on to say that she recalled Cobie Smulders, who played Maria Hill, as one of the few other female actors on the set. "It was like a big sausage party," Johansson said.
It's not the first time Johansson has discussed female representation in the Marvel franchise. Off the back of "Avengers: Endgame" in 2019, she told Variety that she was among female costars who were "pushing" for an all-women Marvel movie.

"That group of actresses is so incredibly powerful and when they come together, it's explosive and unstoppable. So yes, I'm pushing for that. I think audiences want it and I'm definitely one of them," she said.

But whether she'd still be part of such a film in the franchise today seems unlikely given that Johansson also told Paltrow during the podcast that she is through playing Black Widow.
"I'm done," Johansson told Paltrow (at the 19:28 mark). "Chapter is over. I kind of did all that I had to do. Also coming back and playing a character again and again like that, over a decade of time, is such a unique experience."
