DGOW Finals Preview: Favorite Scarlett Johansson Roles

Rather than doing a tale of the tape like I've done in past rounds, I wanted to do something different to spotlight the two DGOW Tournament Finalists. So for each girl -- Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively -- I'll pick my five favorite roles they've been cast in. In each case, I'll pick four roles that have already been played, and one that is coming soon. This is the Scarlett Johansson fave five. Click here for Blake Lively.



Fave Five Scarlett Johansson Movies
(Listed in order of release)


2003 - Lost in Translation
The role that put ScarJo on the map. I remember hearing all the buzz about this movie and still being unsure about it, then being blown away when I finally saw it.

2006 - The Prestige
Somehow, there were two movies about old timey magicians that came out in 2006, this one and "The Illusionist". While there may be some debate as to which one had the hotter female lead (ScarJo vs Jessica Biel), this was definitely the better movie.

2008 - The Other Boleyn Girl
This piece of historical fiction, with ScarJo in the title role opposite Natalie Portman, wasn't as good as it could have been, but that doesn't mean it was bad either.

2010 - Iron Man 2
I finally watched this movie on Blu-ray this week (after having bought it the day it came out). I know some people didn't like it as much as the first one, but I still think it was fucking awesome. And ScarJo in a black catsuit? Yes, please.

2012 - The Avengers
I know I'm cheating by including two movies in which Johansson plays the same character, but I don't care. The more Black Widow in my life the better.
