Scarlett Johansson Felt Hopeless About Her Career After Losing Role To Sandra Bullock

Scarlett Johansson admits feeling hopeless about her career after losing a big role to Sandra Bullock. She reveals in a new Variety profile that she was devastated by losing the lead in Alfonso Cuarón's hit sci-fi/action movie Gravity to Bullock. Johansson was also initially turned down for the role of Black Widow in Iron Man 2, which she thought was another major setback. However, luck was on her side when Emily Blunt dropped out of the film, allowing Johansson to ultimately land the role that launched her long run as a major figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
