Jeremy Renner & Chris Evans joke about Black Widow character

Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner are promoting their film,“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and had some rather interesting things to say about Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow character.

The interviewer asked about fans wanting Black Widow to hook up with one of their characters, with the actors joking that Black Widow is a “slut” and a “whore”.  Obviously they are joking around, but have now issued an apology. So silly!

During the interview, they were asked about fan’s hopes that Black Widow would get romantically involved with their characters, Captain America and Hawkeye, instead of the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo).

Jeremy stated, “She’s a slut.” Evans died laughing and agreed, adding, “I was going to say something along that line … A complete whore.”

Renner also joked that “she has a prosthetic leg anyway.”

In the comic books, Black Widow has flirted and had romances with Hawkeye, Iron Man, Captain America, and even Daredevil.

But Johansson hasn’t been linked to a single superhero in any of the films until now.

In the new movie, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Black Widow gets close to one Avenger.

Evans: She’s a complete whore.

Renner: She has a prosthetic leg, anyway.
Evans: Leading everybody on…

Fans weigh in on Black Widow whore comments

Black Widow flirts with heroes and villains alike in order to gain intel, but her sexuality is depicted as one of her many weapons.

Following online outcry, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner have apologized for their comments.

Evans’ statement reads, “Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America. We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.”

Renner also mentioned the pressure of the promotional tour in explaining the problematic comments. He said, “I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone. It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour.”
