Scarlett Johansson is dangerous even without her hands in new ‘Avengers’ clip

And yet, here I am, posting more footage from the film. But I have two reasons. One, this is the first clip from “The Avengers,” as opposed to a trailer. And two, Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow does something really cool.

In the already released footage, Romanoff — the film’s only female hero — has been relegated to retrieving Bruce Banner and holding a gun.

But in the new clip, Black Widow fights three guys with her hands tied behind a chair. She frees herself by doing a flip and breaking the chair on a man’s back.

So sure, she doesn’t have any superpowers. But it’s clear from this clip that Black Widow will be able to keep up with the superhero boys.
