Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers‘ lets forth it’s first action clip with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow doing some very Buffy moves fighting the man or men in this case. Plus there’s some new behind the scenes images below.
Any Joss Whedon fan will be able to feel him all over this scene from ‘The Avengers‘ with Black Widow aka Natasha Romanova as she’s being called into action by S.H.I.E.L.D.’s agent Coulson while strapped down to a chair. It reminded me so much of many scenes with Buffy and Faith and sometimes Cordelia in Angel, and it’ll get you revved up to see Scarlett Johansson kicking butt. Many of the trailers so far have been very man heavy, so having one dedicated to female power is refreshing.
In the clip, Johansson is on the phone and is told that Barton aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) is compromised so naturally she has to kick into high gear to get back to the office. Many young fans…and probably older ones too will enjoy seeing the lady kicking ass in a black bra and someone will wind up creating one of those creepy stalker feeling Pinterest boards dedicated to it.
Here’s some more on the set images from the movie too with the crew but definitely Captain America (Chris Evans) heavy as he is the narrative driving force of the film.
