Scarlett Johansson won't just be a sex object in 'The Avengers'
@Last_Years_Villain: "I was hella pissed at Comiccon during the Iron Man 2 panel when every single male cast member was asked questions, and Scarlet Johansson was only mentioned in passing "you're hot". Anyone with eyeballs knows she's hot, but she worked her ass off to get that role, and she took the time out of her busy schedule and faced nerd musk to support her movie. What are your feelings on this? Have you dealt with the hypersexualization of women in Avengers?"
@IAMAJossWhedon: "All I can say is that Scarlett gets to do a lot more than be hot in 'Avengers'. It's definitely dispiriting to have a woman play an heroic role and then be reduced to body parts by fan commentary, but that can only change slowly. And is."
