Scarlett Johansson Black Widow poster from The Avengers

A friend just emailed to say they saw a bunch of Avengers movie posters featuring the individual character displayed in the cinema. So my first thought naturally is something along the lines of “is there a poster of Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow?”

After a quick bit of online research I have confirmed that such a poster does exist. And I like it.

The Black Widow has long been one of my favourite Marvel characters so I was pleased when she appeared in Iron Man 2. To be honest I wasn’t quite sure about the casting of Scarlett or the look of the character in that movie. As it turned out I think Scarlett did a good job with what she was given to do. Also I think she looks more like the comic character in The Avengers.

Anyway, here is the poster. It’s why we’re all here.

Yes, I could have mentioned the other posters and included them here, but I’m only interested in Scarlett. And who can blame me.

The Avengers opens in the UK on 27 April 2012.
