The cinematic Avengers are parodied and dissembled respectively in these fan art and new character posters.
With screen siren Scarlett Johansson's turn as Black Widow in the upcoming superhero epic film, The Avengers, there is certainly no doubt in her role as the sex symbol to appeal to the fan boys, Marvel Zombies or not. And that is immediately evident in an early promotional art where every members of the team roll out their best superheroic pose and Johansson's posture being of the most expectedly stereotypical sexy femme fatale.
Noticing the perceived sexist statement, artist Kevin Bolk conjured his own take on the aforementioned piece of promotional art by reimagining every single Avengers in the erotic pose of Johansson's Black Widow. Sexist discrimination or feminist notes aside, the result is hilarious.
In the artist's own words:
This is a parody of this promo art for the Avengers movie. 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?
And in a not-quite-related news on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel has disassembled the earlier-released banners for the film which we have deemed a good case study in Photoshop Disaster into individual character posters.
Hit the jump if you like them better individually.
