So, I was browsing through Tumblr (as I do) when the Black Widow poster for the upcoming film Captain America: The Winter Soldier popped up on my dash. For the few people who have yet to see it, it looks like this:
So, I was looking at it, and it looks a little off. And then it hit me: she looks broken. And I don’t mean psychologically or emotionally broken; I mean it fucking looks like someone physically broke her.
I mean, look at this clusterfuck. Her arms look like they’re ten feet long. Is Scarlett Johansson secretly a Stretch Armstrong doll? Also, where did her internal organs go? Her waist’s been photoshopped to be as wide as her jaw, for Christ’s sake!
And what is up with her pose? It looks extremely awkward, and not dynamic at all. She looks like an action figure. A poorly proportioned action figure.
I mean, is this supposed to be sexy? Because it’s really not. It’s just awkward and wrong.
