Hollywood is abuzz with the trailer of 'Black Widow' which dropped on Monday (December 2). It sees Scarlett Johansson essay Natasha Romanoff and also features a slew of new characters.

Johansson, who appeared on tonight's episode of 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert', talked about her latest Marvel Universe film and revealed that she had no idea about the trailer launch.

Her co-star ('Captain America') and actor Chris Evan dropped her a text at 5.30 in the morning informing her about the 'Black Widow' trailer. "They keep everything from me," she quipped.

Despite the popularity her character has achieved globally, Johansson admits that she wouldn't have been able to pull it off if she were approached for the role 10 years ago. "My journey with Natasha has inferred this (Black Widow) movie," she added.

However, the 'Marriage Story' actress dealt with the host's question smartly when asked if 'Black Widow' would be her last appearance as Nat Romanoff.

At first, dodging the question and mocking Stephen for the fan theory he presented, she said, "Are you one of the people that looks for theories on social media or do you come up with them yourself?"

When Stephen insisted on getting an answer to his previous question, Johansson hilariously responded, "I don't know what to answer. A Marvel representative would be waiting with a dart gun somewhere."

She first appeared as Black Widow in 2010 in Jon Favreau's 'Iron Man 2' for which she underwent intense training to prepare for the role and even dyed her hair red to make her character look more convincing.

Scarlett Johansson later reprised her famous role in 2012 in 'The Avengers', for which she learned Russian with the help of a former teacher, and eventually went on to essay the same role in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,' 'Captain America: Civil War', 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Avengers: Endgame'.
