Scarlett Johansson Learns the Secret of Stephen Colbert’s Captain America Shield

Life has got to be pretty weird when a good portion of your career is pretending to be a superhero. Your days are full of being a professional bad-ass straight from the pages of comic books while other people spend time in cubicles, serving food, or working retail. But it’s refreshing to know that these big stars, like Scarlett Johansson, are still just people who get a kick out of Reddit doppelgängers and are on a constant search for good chicken wings.

ScarJo stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert promote her new movie Rough Nightbut ended up chatting with Colbert about all manner of things. Topics ranged from Johansson’s 72-year-old doppelgänger and how she joined her for the premiere of the movie to the quest for good chicken wings around the world.

When conversation shifted to the amount of characters that will appear Avengers: Infinity WarColbert suggested that he should be a part of it (something I’m 100% on board with), since he’s actually a Marvel character after appearing in Amazing Spider-Man #573ColbertSpiderManCover

To further prove his Marvel worthiness, Colbert and Johansson climbed the stairs on his set to check out his Captain America shield only to find it hiding a safe that even Colbert was unaware of.

So is this a fun mix-up where the host of the show doesn’t know the ins and outs of his set design or something more nefarious!? Considering Colbert conveniently leaves his glasses at his desk and can’t read the prompter at the send-off and that Scarlett “Black Widow” Johansson saves the day by sending things to commercial can only mean one thing!

“Forgetting” his glasses was actually a dig at the theory that Heimdall’s eyes are the key to the last Infinity stone and that the Soul Gem is actually in Stephen Colbert’s secret safe!


Thank you, thank you. Yes. I cracked the case. And you can thank me in the comments below!
