Today, Avengers: Endgame stars joined kids from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim and Garden Grove for Avengers Universe Unites, a charity event that supports The Walt Disney Company’s signature philanthropic commitment.
Scarlett Johansson, co-star of Avengers: Endgame and lead of the upcoming Black Widow film, was on hand to help the children play at a larger-than-life LEGO® build at The LEGO Store in Downtown Disney and treated the kids to the numerous collectibles that were present, including Hasbro action figures, Iron Man MK50 robots by UBTECH and Funko POP! vinyl figures.
Johansson also sat down with reporters and discussed what it felt like the first time she saw her character as a toy. Johansson said, “that’s when I knew I really made it. I’ve played so many characters over the past 25 years that I don’t think any of them could ever have possibly be made into a LEGO, so for my daughter to be able to see a LEGO version of the Black Widow or any of the other many, many iterations of my character as a toy and recognize it and go ‘oh, that’s mama!’ it’s pretty cool.”
