On the 11th April 2012 Marvel Entertainment release the Avengers in selected US cinemas. As such – we can expect a dearth of Avengers material released on the web – most likely replaced with reviews and fan material. Released a couple of days ago Scarlet Johansen is the first Avenger to be showcased in her own solo promo – if you don’t count Iron Man I and II, Agent Coulson’s one-shots and the first parts of the Thor and Captain America franchises. Where’s the Hawkeye and Maria Hill promo?
Regardless; Black Widow proves that ladies can kick some ass. In the hands of director Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Serenity (Firefly) which both centre on mistresses of the Kung Pow this was always likely!!
Pretty much all of this footage has long since been seen as a TV Spot and various previews but this is what the Japanese got months ago as a standard trailer for the Avengers movie. Leaning a little more heavily on the tech – with some lingering shots of the Shield carrier doing it’s thing the whole thing starts with a revealing look at the invaders coming out of a wibbly wormhole. Not much more of a fanfare was really needed for Avengers in the west but Marvel and Disney can expect some smaller, yellower bums on seats in the Far East based on this promo. Interesting to see if there’s another before Japan’s release in a few month’s time. Sorry about the description of possible appearance of bums in Japan. I’ve never seen a Japanese ass. Sorry again.
