Chris Evans Terrifies ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Co-Star Scarlett Johansson on ‘Ellen’ (Video)

Evans will need Captain America’s shield to protect himself from Johansson after this

Poor Scarlett Johansson probably wishes she had super hearing after this encounter.

Johansson, who plays Black Widow in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Thursday to promote the film when she got a surprise visit from co-star Chris Evans.

Johansson was answering questions about the film, including recalling that she and Evans have now done five films together, when Evans deftly snuck onto the set and got within inches of her before banging on her chair and yelling in her ear.

The effect was a split-second of genuine terror, though it likely felt longer to Johansson.

The “Captain America” star laughed hysterically while Johansson screamed, but in true Avengers style, the two hugged it out afterwards.

DeGeneres claimed the whole thing was Evans’ idea, though this seems a dubious claim, given the fact that DeGeneres is famous for pranks on her fellow celebrities.
