The glorious Jessica Chastain said what we've been (and surely tons of other people) thinking all along: “Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie?"

"I don't understand it," Chastain told The Wrap, "why is it taking so long for this? This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies. ‘Lucy,’ didn't it beat ‘Hercules’ by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. ‘Under the Skin’ is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson? To me, it's a no-brainer. You want to make money, put Scarlett Johansson in a superhero movie!”
