I couldn’t help but notice that in most of the ad material, the guys are all in heroic stances but Black Widow is almost always in an impractical, curved-spine “booty shot” pose. Figured I’d flip it around for my lady friends out there. Seemed only fair. Them’s some strong male characters, amirite?
The only problem with this theory is that no one seems to know whether the poster being parodied is official marketing material or just fan art. Scarlett Johansson’s ass is definitely sticking out in the official character banners, but you could make a similar argument as to why the male characters’ ‘heroic stances’ so frequently involve not wearing sleeves. Everyone’s objectified in their own way. Also, maybe if Black Widow had any powers besides jiu-jitsuing people, she might get a different pose. As a jiu-jitsu practitioner myself, I can confirm that at least 85% of jiu-jitsu involves distracting your opponent with your pert, rock-hard ass. Mainly, I just posted it because I can’t get enough of the look on the Hulk’s face. That’s the sassiest asshole spread I’ve ever seen, and I’d like to think I know what I’m talking about here.
