Avengers Clip: Where Have We Seen Scarlett Johansson's Chair Fight Before?

Marvel and Disney have officially released a clip from The Avengers, with Scarlett Johansson kicking ass in a cocktail dress while bound to a chair. I would go on, but you've seen it all before: It is basically the same fight scene Jason Statham staged last year in Killer Elite, except with boobs. Click through to view both.

What's next? Thor thrashing Loki in a hospital somewhere?

    Apparently, smacking a guy in the face with your hair will break his nose. That is an astonishingly awful fight scene.

    • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

      Check out how she's jumping backward before the leap, then flips forward after the cut. It's like something out of a D-grade kung-fu movie.

    Drew Barrymore did one in the first Charlie's Angels, too.

    Didn't they both steal this from Charlie's Angels?

  • Patrick Hallstein / McEvoy-Halston says:

    I'm sure Loki is trembling. She does however look almost equal to Thor ... when stripped of all his powers.

  • Lisa says:

    Jennifer Garner in S1 of Alias had a chair fight scene where you could actually believe she was kicking ass.

    • Brie says:

      Yeah, Alias did this in 2001, fake red hair and all, and it was much more fun to watch.

    Guys...it's a super-hero movie. Be happy that they're giving it millions of dollars and serious attention. Nitpicky comments like this will lead to NO comic movies in the future if they think you won't come spend dollars.

    It's not THAT bad. Seriously. It's a popcorn movie. Whatever she lacks in quality, The Hulk makes up for in freaking sheer awesomeness.
