Jeremy Renner Clarifies That Black Widow Is Most Definitely a Slut

Avengers actor Jeremy Renner got in a spot of trouble last month when he and Chris Evans joked that Scarlet Johansonn’s Black Widow character, was a slut — a controversy that may or may not be linked to director Joss Whedon’s quick exit from Twitter the other day.

Renner later apologized, an apology he absolutely voided last night on Conan. “Mind you, we are talking about a fictional character and fictional behavior, Conan,” he said, “but if you slept with four of the six Avengers, no matter how much fun you had, you’d be a slut. Just saying. I’d be a slut. Just saying.”

The Avengers press tour has not gone according to plan, with star Robert Downey, Jr. walking out of an interview. Meanwhile, Mark Ruffalo and the dude who plays Agent Coulson have called for more Black Widow merchandise.

The film opened to almost $180 million this past weekend, the second-highest opening ever.
