Scarlett Johansson to Host SNL

Scarlett Johansson SNL

Saturday Night Live is assembling its May host lineup, beginning with Avengers star Scarlett Johansson.

The actress, who portrays Black Widow in the Marvel franchise, will lead the NBC sketch comedy series on May 2 — the day after The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters.

A musical guest has yet to be announced.

The hosting gig will be Johansson’s fourth, following a 2010 appearance with musical guest Arcade Fire.

Are you looking forward to Johansson’s fourth go-round on SNL?

    It should be James Spader. Cross promotion with The Blacklist and he actually has a personality.

    Don’t know if ScarJo is going to bounce back from her last appearance on SNL back in November 2010 (Season 36).

  3. Is there a reason RDJ hasn’t hosted? He seems like the most obvious Avenger to host.

  4. Garrett says:

    No. Her previous times were cringeworthy. She’s not a funny person in the slightest.

      Couldn’t agree more. Her last appearance back in November 2010 (Season 36) was a disappointment and I don’t know if her fourth time hosting might do the same. Wonder if Kate McKinnon shows up as Black Widow just like what she did in the Jeremy Renner episode back in November 2012 (Season 38).

  5. I’d love to see her do a repeat of her perfect “SNL”, with Death Cab promoting their new CD!! (Even bring Fred in from Seth’s show to do a “chandelier” sketch call-back!!)

    Can someone please tell Lorne Michaels that she doesn’t do comedy well? At all.
