Scarlett Johansson talks chicken downfall

Scarlett Johansson has joked her "obsession" with buffalo wings will soon see her being "rolled" down the red carpet.

The Hollywood actress portrays Natasha Romanoff/ Black Widow in Avengers Assemble, which also stars Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth. Despite training hard for the high-octane role, Scarlett admits to a few diet weaknesses along the way.

"Oh my god [I am obsessed] with buffalo chicken wings, I am addicted to them," she told FOX411's Pop Tarts column. "You will have to roll me down the red carpet next time you see me."

Scarlett was focused when it came to her Avengers training regime. The stunning star was excited by the relentless action involved.

"You have to eat a really clean diet, a lot of kale and salmon. Basically you get all your nutrients and then training like crazy. The training is crazy, but you just suck it up and do it. There is a lot of strength training and agility training, and fight choreography. You go in, and you just do it," she explained.

"It was absolute nonstop action, it was intense and just a rollercoaster of fights, stunts and explosions. Then of course you have all these characters that do not belong together, and we are in the same room, and try to fight it out between us."
