    "You were so nice to me! You could've been awful," Scarlett reaffirmed. As it was the actress' first foray into the Marvel blockbuster universe, she shared, "I was so out of my comfort zone on that movie. I'd never done anything like that before."

    "You kept telling me that," Scarlett agreed. She added, "Then I experienced that later on. When I did Avengers I was one of the few [women]… it was like a big sausage party."
