Spirit Role Expanded For Scarlett Johansson image
In all the promotional materials for the film, Silken Floss has been showcased alongside all the other women in the story, suggesting the role played by Scarlett Johansson is a lead, along with Sand Saref (Eva Mendes) and Ellen Dolan (Sarah Paulson). But Silken started off as a minor role-- until Johansson expressed interest.

Johansson told a story at Saturday's press conference for The Spirit about meeting with Frank Miller about the movie, even though there weren't really any parts for her in it. "At the end of it I was like 'I'm sad there's nothing for me to do!' and he said 'I'll think of something.' He decided to expand this character." Johansson added with a smile, "I got super, super lucky."

In the film Silken is the accomplice to The Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), a brainy student hoping to learn from his evil ways. It's hard to imagine the movie without her brilliant character, so kudos to Miller for recognizing that any movie, really, can benefit from a little more Johansson.
