Scarlett Johansson's kung fu workouts

Jun 22 2013, 4:12am CDT | by

Scarlett Johansson stays in shape through martial arts.

The 'Avengers Assemble' actress has been working hard to get back into shape to play the Scarlett Widow in the superhero sequel with a combination of martial arts.

A source told the US edition of OK! magazine: ''Scarlett really got into martial arts. She has also logged a lot of time toning her muscles in the gym. She likes to mix up her workouts with circuits and resistance training.''

Scarlett has also changed her diet.

The insider said: ''She's a grazer. She will have between six and eight small meals a day.''

All Scarlett's training should also pay off for further movie roles, as she has already signed up for another action movie, 'Lucy'. The star will play a woman forced to become a drug mule, but upon ingesting the drug, she develops super strength, as well as the ability to absorb knowledge instantly and move objects with her mind in the Luc Besson film.

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See LUCY

Scarlett Johansson SodaStream Partnership
If you just push the "100% of your brain" tagline for Lucy out of your mind (because brains don't work in a capacity measured by percent), you have what could be an incredibly exciting movie.  Director Luc Besson has a knack for creating memorable, ass-kicking women from Nikita to Mathilda to Leeloo.  He may have another one with Scarlett Johansson's eponymous protagonist.  Judging by the tr ...

Scarlett Johansson SodaStream Partnership
Oldboy's in the hoodAfter a chapter of his career in which Luc Besson has made political biopics and comic-strip movies, both with an oddly old-fashioned feel, the Fifth Element man is going back to the future with Lucy. It’s a thriller-cum-sci-fi-cum-sudoku-puzzle of a film that promises to match muscle and mind with the action style his fans know and love him for. The movie has a new clip for its public below showing its titular heroine at a very early stage of her hair ...

From what we have already seen, upcoming action/thriller Lucy is going to be an incredible movie, and not just because it's hard to go wrong with an ass-kicking Scarlett Johansson! The director is amazing, the story (despite criticisms of being too similar to Limitless) promises to be full of twists and turns, and the big names cast will bring in the fans (who doesn't love Morgan Freeman?
