‘The Avengers’ has used all it’s comic book hero power to officially SMASH the Aussie box-office!

After months of anticipation, cinema-goers have flooded local theatres to help bring in a record-breaking $6 million on the Marvel flick’s first day of release.

And if non-stop action, plenty of humour and mega 3D stunts aren’t enough to have the rest of you rushing out to buy a movie ticket – perhaps the promise of Scarlett Johansson in a skin-tight leather catsuit will swing it!

“It was badass and it incorporated the darker side of the character and got down to the nitty gritty of who she is,” lead actress Scarlett Johansson told The Sun of her Black Widow costume.



But, the new redhead admits it’s no easy task saving the earth from evil!

“There have been months of training and stunts and fighting,” she added. “I will probably be in physical therapy for years. There’s a lot of hand-to-hand combat and a combination of different fighting styles — gymnastics, Muay Thai, boxing, kick-boxing, I do all that.”

Although it wasn’t all work, work, work. When the cameras stopped rolling the screen beauty took upon herself to show the rest of the star-studded cast how to party!

Naming ScarJo as the wildest member of them all, her castmates Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo told Sky News,

“Dance party, Scarlett. Karaoke, Scarlett. Margarita party, Scarlett. Stunt man suit party, Scarlett. Casino Party, Scarlett.”

TThor and Captain America.

However, it sounds like heavy heads weren’t the only thing the famous gang were left suffering with when shooting wrapped!

Revealing how he gave himself a black eye with co-star Tom Hiddleston’s character Loki’s whip, the Thor hunk told Shortlist magazine,

“I went to use it and he told me to be careful and I'm like, 'I'm fine, I'm fine'. And then I accidently stood on the end of the whip and cracked the thing and it recoiled and hit me right in the eye. I had an inch of swelling above my eye and across my cheek, and straight away it started to turn black.”
