Saturday Night Live took advantage of Scarlett Johansson hosting this week’s episode by shooting a Black Widow solo movie with the star.
In Black Widow: Age of Me, the Avenger gets a movie of her own — a film many fans have been hoping for as we’ve watched each of Marvel’s male super heroes get solo movies and sequels.
There’s just one problem with the Black Widow solo movie: Age of Me is a romantic comedy, because this is SNL.
In the hilarious trailer for Age of Me, Black Widow falls in love with Ultron (“I think you’re moving way too fast with this guy,” advises Nick Fury over Chinese food), and trouble ensues when the titular villain breaks her heart.
SNL has really nailed pop culture trends lately. In March they created a trailer for a live action Bambi starring The Rock — it played into Disney’s recent slew of plans to turn their animated classics into live-action films.
Their latest spoof makes you wonder…
A Black Widow solo movie: Will it actually ever happen?
Johansson hosted this week’s SNL to promote The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hit theaters in the United States on May 1.
