Video: ‘The Avengers’ Starts to Sell Sex with Black Widow Fight Scene

Not to say that Robert Downey, Jr. and The Hulk aren’t sex symbols. They are. A huge portion of the population probably sees the battles of wit and weaponry in The Avengers trailers and gets a special tingle, but the other stereotypical side of the population that’s already (stereotypically speaking) in the bag for Marvel’s new movie might be more inclined to see Scarlett Johansson in a low-slung black cocktail dress beat a bunch of guys with broken chair legs.

Ask, and ye shall receive.

After the adrenaline rushes, Marvel has released a brief scene aiming to get a different kind of bodily chemical flowing:

The scene is a little silly, and the gag with Agent Coulson on the phone works well, but the fight itself is a little lame. It’s too bad it couldn’t have been as tight as that dress.

What do you think?
