Scarlett Johansson resists all interrogation in the 'Avengers' movie
|OFFWORLD - TRAILERS|
I'm a bit tied-up at the moment...
Well, the latest clip to be sent to us from Joss Whedon's Avengers movie (The Avengers in the US, Avengers Assemble in the UK) certainly makes an impression and sends a message - whether you're into beefcake or cheesecake, there's nothing missing from the Marvel Studios buffet that we are eagerly expecting in cinemas shortly.
Did I read somewhere once that Joss Whedon spent quite a long spell in Europe once..?
Yes, I'm reasonably sure I did. Like you were going to see a Joss Whedon movie with no hot girls kicking ass - in costumes designed to a spare millimetre of the wrong rating. The current press handout straddles that fine feminist divide that keeps Joss and James (Cameron) up nights in their decades-long mission to adore and promote strong female characters without excessive...err...self-indulgence?
"There's nothing wrong with being a femme fatale super spy, but what makes Black Widow stand out is that she has no powers beyond her own natural, human abilities--and yet, she manages to hold her own amongst all these other immensely powerful, super-enhanced individuals. Not one of them would dare underestimate her. Why? Because she is extraordinarily intelligent and savvy, and a master strategist. Plus, she's gutsy as hell."
Marjorie Liu, one-time writer of the Black Widow series
Punisher writer Greg Rucka is pithier, though, a few paragraphs along:
She’s a stunning redhead in a skin-tight black battle suit.
Come to think of it, is this the first post I've done on the Avengers movie..?
