She looks AMAZING in that new poster! I'm suprised Marvel hasn't considered a Black Widow video game considering her rich history and the fact that she has worked with, for, and against some of the biggest names in Marvel Comics. Her weapon upgrade system alone would be badass.

And I too would like to see her use her gauntlets the way she does in the comics. They aren't just tasers they have a wide range of uses.

Ohh, see, I totally didn't see that, they definitely didn't make it clear
I wanna see her shoot somebody with it like the comics
would rather she just has one gun and the bracelets as her main weaponry

It is a striking poster.

This poster is incredible. Yes, it is probably Photoshopped but quite frankly ScarJo is gorgeous enough as it is, and it's not like they turned an ugly duckling into a swan. I like the rest of the posters as well. Cap 2 is easily my most anticipated CBM this year.

Awesome posters. Now give me Falcon and Winter Soldier ones.

Edit, I meant to put this in the other thread. But Widow looks amazing, so there.

Not a big fan of the poster. First of all, they felt the need to photo shop Scarlett freaking Johansson in order to make her look more "sexy," which is stupid. Second, both Cap and Fury get posters showing them in brooding or badass poses, and BW gets one that shows her in a "sexy pose." Sorry, but I just don't like it.

Yeah, I don't love it either.

You know the hawkeye effect? The belief that if you replace a female character with hawkeye in the same exact pose and it doesn't look silly then it's not sexist?

I reckon someone needs to replace that widow poster with hawkeye. I'm sure she will be cool in the movie but this poster just makes her look contorted and like a bit of wank fodder.

Where do y'all get that the Widow pose is "sexy?" Granted, the suit itself is innately sexy, and Scarjo is innately sexy, but that's by far the *least* sexist pose I've ever seen Black Widow (comics or movies) in.

She looks more like Two-Gun Jesus in that pose, not a pornstar. "Black Widow died for your sins"

It's the supermodel look, probably to advertise to the international market. In truth she's a fairly short, healthily built woman. If you look closely they extended her neck to an absurd length and thinned her out to make her look 5'11".

Well, just speaking as a female fan it's a bit offensive. I mean, obviously they are all going to be photoshopped (ScarJo included), but it's pretty excessive in this case. Her waist looks smaller than her head.

The big deal is that she's supposed to be playing the world's greatest spy, not a freaking model posing in a sexy way. If this were an actual modeling photo shoot, then that pose would work fine. But as it stands, it doesn't fit her character or the situation and it looks particularly out of place when compared to the posters of the male characters. Oh and the whole "it's not as bad as other poses" thing isn't actually a valid defense. All that that proves is that those other images and poses were crappy to, not that this one is actually good.

How does Widow's poster not show a super-spy, or not "fit in" with the scenario being shown? You've seen how the solo poster fits in with the group poster, right? She's drawing her guns, heading towards whatever battle has been joined, and she looks all John Woo gun-fu there. I fail to see "teh sexay" in there. Maybe if she was all splayed out in her Spider-Man pose from IM2 with her cleavage shoved in our faces, you'd have a limb to stand on. Not here.

Maybe they should have her hiding in the shadows so only her face is showing to have her doing something assassin-y.

And these aren't "wank fodder"? /did you (and other critics of the BW poster) storm the DOFP forums to complain about the blatant exploitation of JLaw and Paquin? (I just noticed the distinct line of larger blue scales leading directly down Lawrence's pubis. Very classy, don't you think, and totally not suggestive at all.)

I doubt it. Didn't see anyone pitching a fit over shirtless Wolverine or Bucky ass on the new Cap2 poster either. Double standards ftw.

I'm the first one to agree that the comic-book industry has a lot to answer for in overtly sexualizing women for the past 50+ years, and certainly Hollywood has done the same. It just irritates the hell out of me when "well-meaning" PC police pick the wrong fights. *This* poster and portrayal of Black Widow (or any female character) is not the one to get up in arms about. As those DOFP Empire covers above show, there's bigger fish to fry.

Here's an interpretation of the BW poster from a user on Tumblr, and could possibly have been what Marvel was trying to go for with the image….

Quote:
Illustration by Julian Totino Tedesco

Black Widow’s pose is an allusion to Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. She is the goddess aphrodite.
Her pose is contrapposto.
Her hair is the same color and lifting the same way as Venus’.
Her surroundings mimic the painting - the clouds are the sea, the hellicarrier is the shell, the planes are the flowers.
The “bad photoshopping” is meant to mimic Botticelli’s style (which wasn’t naturalism). Botticelli used long arms, elongated necks, etc.
This is not sexist. It’s building on the idea that Natasha weaponizes her femininity.
For all two of you who want my thoughts on the matter, I’ve used the tag “black widow poster" to collect my replies.
The only problem I have with it is that Marvel didn't give her an alternate pose for the actual main movie poster. I wish they had her posed more like Fury or Cap for that one; she just looks out of place in that group shot.

But I don't think it's sexist by any means.

As Natasha doesn't have any real "super" powers, Marvel could do a "quick and cheap" Black Widow movie right after "Ant-Man." Maybe.

Of course, any Black Widow movie should have Natasha fighting and then teaming up with Yelena Belova, the "new" Black Widow, To me, Chloe Moretz should be Yelena, but many on Twitter and Instagram are pulling for Amber Heard as Yelena.

If they decide to go "bigger and bolder" a BW movie could include Darkstar, Titanium Man, Vanguard, Ursa Major, and Professor Phobos as a Russian version of the Avengers, the Winter Guard. Marvel has a lot of Russian characters from the Cold War era that weren't really "villains." Russia wanting their own team of superheroes in case there's another alien invasion like in New York or Greenwich makes sense.

I've been wishing for a Widow/Hawkeye film since Avengers! One that would include a current mission which would reminisce their Budapest mission (making it the one where they met, maybe), as an excuse to include flashbacks, showing how she got recruited for the red room (maybe a nod of how she was trained to lose the russian accent everyone makes a fuss about) and by Hawkeye, at the end.

I'd say throw natasha's husband, the Red Guardian, as the threat S.H.I.E.L.D. has to stop, who they though had died in the Budapest mission or similar (the Widowmaker comic could actual make a great base for the plotline!)
