Today, Marvel Entertainment released the first official clip of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. There’s nothing sexier than a woman in black taking down a group of “highly qualified” agents… Well yes there is. If that same woman was tied down in a chair, hands behind her back, in all black and still kicking ass. Now we’re talking.
The clip features Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow going ape s*** on her captors, right after putting Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson on hold. The actress’s new hairstyle makes her even more of a bad ass than she was in Iron Man 2. After viewing the past trailers and TV spots, it seems as if the writers gave Johansson a bit more to chomp on. Her dialogue is smooth and dangerous and we’ve seen her kicking ass in several scenes now (by the way, the shots where she’s swinging on the pipes may be a different scene than the one below due to her costume change). Don’t forget this skilled agent also flies the S.H.I.E.L.D.’s new aircraft and escapes the Hulk’s furry. While the boys need hammers, shields, a suit of armor and a bow and arrow, all Black Widow needs is a gun…. yeah she may be the only female on the team, but do we need anyone else when we’ve got Black Widow?
As a bonus, Marvel released 10 new character wall papers featuring all the main characters from the film. View the clip below and be sure to leave some comments.
