We all know the actress named Scarlett Johansson. She plays the bad ass Black Widow in the Avengers and other movies. The assassin that is out taking names and making sure the boys stay in line. As one of the only female Avengers she has to make sure the boys do what they are supposed to and don't get into it. Granted she has since left the Avengers with a death that left us all a little sad.

Just what did she play before her role?

Scarlett Johansson has a long list of films she's been in. Some that were major hits and others that were just short of a flop. As many actresses do that is. While we love a lot of her work she has been in the news some not so great roles she's picked up in the past.

What we can say is that we do know she had to start somewhere before the Avengers really showed her to the world that is.

In Good Company is one of the first things that comes to mind when talking about Scarlett. Directed by Paul Weitz (American Pie and About a Boy) it follows Dan Foreman (Dennis Quaid) who is being replaced at his job. Now Johansson plays the daughter of Dan who falls in love with the man taking Dan's job.

It gained an 82% on Rotten Tomatoes and it was a box office hit in 2004. It was simple to see why it was so good too.


The Black Dahlia is another film that Johansson is known for. It is the crime thriller based around the 1947 murder of Elizabeth Short. Johansson plays a character named Kay Lake. She is dating the detective on the crime.

The movie follows the lives of the characters as they slowly unravel. It is interesting but there were things that fans didn't like.

This was shown by it being a box office flop. It only got a 32% on Rotten Tomatoes as well.

The next movie is that of Match Point a psychological thriller. The 2005 film shows Johansson in a love triangle where she must figure things out. This was the first film out of three that she worked with the controversial director, Woody Allen. While the film did alright in the box office it isn't a fan favorite due to who directed it.

While there are many things we can look forward to with her we hope to see her new film Black Widow soon.
