Kaboom! One of the new stills released shows Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff standing in the street while a building blows up
She's battling to save the world from impending doom in her latest movie, but that doesn't meant that Scarlet Johansson can't be sexy.
The actress gets stuck into the action in the new comic book adventure, which follows a crack team of superheroes out to prevent the end of the earth, of course.
And she wears a devastatingly delectable outfit during explosive scenes - an all-in-one leather catsuit complete with a utility belt for all the real comic book geeks out there.
Devastating: The actress' outfit will raise eyebrows among comic book fans and regular movie-goers alike
Scarlett stars as spy Natasha Romanoff, also known as Black Widow.
In new shots from the film set she is seen preparing for a scene with director Joss Whedon on a set that looks like the interior of a space ship.
Then in another still, she is seen standing in a debris-filled road in New York as a building blows up by a bus behind her.

The 26-year-old is the only female member of the Avengers, but not the only female character in the film and earlier this year, Scarlett said her character can more than measure up to her teammates.
She said: 'The other day we were doing this big reveal shot of all the Avengers. Thor has got his hammer, Cap’s got his shield, Hawkeye has his bow and arrow, and Hulk is huge. Then it pans over to me and I’ve got guns.
