The actress said she really started to feel like her character Black Widow as soon as she dyed her blond strands fiery red. “When I dyed it back to that color for the film it was like, ‘Alright! Here we go!‘” she told reporters at the the movie’s Hollywood premiere. “I love that the red hair is associated with this character. It’s now kind of her trademark.” Get more details on Johansson’s Avengers look by clicking through the gallery.
