The Avengers: Age of Ultron star Scarlett Johansson hosted NBC’s Saturday Night Live for the fourth time on Saturday May 2 and once again wowed audiences.

Still promoting her new film a day after its release, the gorgeous actress started the night showing off her singing skills instead, showing SNL hosts Kenan Thompson and Taran Killam the “lullaby” she sings to her daughter, “Love to Love You Baby.”

Johansson also tackled an issue that has come up again and again in recent years, the fact that her character Black Widow has played only a supporting role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe through several films.

There has been a call for more female based superhero films and even her Avengers co-star Mark Ruffalo recently spoke out about lack of Black Widow toys versus the rest of the Avengers for children to play with.

Luckily Black Widow finally got her chance while on SNL, giving us a “teaser” trailer mocking female-centric films as Black Widow gets a job at a fashion magazine and then has a complicated relationship with villain Ultron.

Johansson took part in a few more skits before finishing the night by congratulating Floyd Mayweather on winning the “Fight of the Century” against Manny Pacquio.

We can only hope that if there is a Black Widow standalone film, it doesn’t turn out like the SNL version.
