Actress Scarlett Johansson is too focused on her role in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' to plan her wedding

Scarlett Johansson is too focused on her role in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' to plan her wedding.

The blonde actress, who is taking part in re-shoots for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and is meant to be planning a wedding after getting engaged to French boyfriend Romain Dauriac, admits her attention is on preparing for her fourth turn as Black Widow in the next 'Avengers' film.

Asked if she had started planning her big day yet, she told Parade: "No, I'm busy planning Avengers 2 right now ... that's my main focus.

"I've never been a big planning kind of person. I'd never share it with anybody, but I think more than anything I feel really fortunate to have had this amazing year professionally."

Speaking about 'Age of Ultron', the 29-year-old actress exclaimed: "Oh boy! Well, we can expect the Avengers. Joss, again, is back, wrote the script, and is directing. I think the script is dark and it's dry, it's got this amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humour.

"Obviously the script is very cerebral. It doesn't lose that exciting comic book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it's smart and it feels like the next installment.

"It doesn't feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plotlines are moving forward."

She added: "It's deep and I think that's why people really respond to the Marvel universe, because the films are fun and exciting and have all that flashy stuff, but there's a gravity to them. People can expect that gravity this time around."

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much…
