Scarlett Johansson called the early MCU sets a "big sausage party."Black Widow actress Johansson made the remarks on "The Goop Podcast."
The podcast presenter, Gwyneth Paltrow, said the group was "psyched" to have Johansson.
Scarlett Johansson recalled her early Marvel Cinematic Universe days and noted the absence of female presence.
In a recent interview with Gwyneth Paltrow on "The Goop Podcast," Johansson, 38, discussed her acting career and Marvel franchise experience.
Johansson portrays Natasha Romanoff in nine Marvel movies, including 2021's "Black Widow."
She and Paltrow, who played Pepper Potts, were two of the few female characters in the Marvel franchise.
Paltrow, 50, claimed she and the rest of "Iron Man 2"'s 2010 ensemble were "psyched" to have Johansson.
"We were so psyched you were there and I was so happy to have another woman around," Paltrow remarked (15:23).
"But then later on, I experienced that too," Johansson said, referring to her Marvel films with few female characters. "When I did 'Avengers' I was also one of the few."
She also remembered Cobie Smulders, who played Maria Hill, as one of the few female actresses on set. "It was like a big sausage party," Johansson remarked.
"That group of actresses is so powerful and when they come together, it's explosive and unstoppable. I'm pushing that. "Audiences want it, and I'm one of them,"
Johansson told Paltrow in the podcast that she's done portraying Black Widow, so it's unlikely she'd be in a franchise picture now.
"I'm done," Johansson informed Paltrow (19:28). "Chapter ends. I mostly did everything. Coming back and portraying a role over a decade is a unique experience."
