Here are the latest AVENGERS photos, showing Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson feigning interest in mundane supercomputers. And then Hawkeye, Cap, and Black Widow striding confidently into battle.
Am I the only person who is beginning to feel a little sorry for ScarJo’s Black Widow, who, based on the majority of the materials we’ve seen, must sally forth into battle with the “Skrulls” armed only with a devastating pout and a crippling brokeback? Her little popgun in the Super Bowl trailer was nearly pitiful. Not that Hawkeye’s Marx bow-and-arrow set is much more impressive but at least he looks like he could take a punch. Johansson does not radiate “lethal superspy.” She is cute, though.
Maria Hill, you’re my only hope.
