Scarlett plays Laura in the sci-fi horror film, an alien sexual predator. FilmNation described the role as "an alien on Earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey - her voracious sexuality."
Wow, sounds like a very interesting role, to say the least.

"Yeah, it's a massive production. We have a lot of sets, and all kinds of vehicles and all kinds different sorts of ships and boats."

A tired-looking Scarlett Johansson is spotted on the set of The Avengers last week in Santa Fe, New Mexico (June 8). The film began production back in late April (check out a really cool picture from director Joss Whedon here).
During a surprise appearance at the Hero Complex Film Festival in Hollywood on Sunday, Scarlett's co-star Robert Downey Jr. joked that he can't the film so far:
"Well, I hate everybody. I'm not talking about the cast, I'm not talking about Joss. What I mean is I tend to look at a scene and say 'This is absolutely impossible, we can't shoot this, it's horrible. I can tell you 10 other movies it's been in, I refuse.' I usually start off the morning by refusing to do what I've signed on to do.
"How are you gonna put all of us clowns together? He's wearing a suit, he's all jacked up, he's so and so, and poor Mark Ruffalo, he's gonna outdo us. And we're about six weeks in, and I have to say Joss Whedon is nailing it. He's so smart and so good. And it's gonna be great. I can't believe I just said it. I never could've believed this, but it's gonna be great."

Scarlett was just voted the 7th most "Desirable Woman" in AskMen.com's annual poll, published earlier this month; they wrote:
"Men everywhere were suddenly rejuvenated [when Scarlett and her husband Ryan Reynolds broke up]; they had purpose for their hope -- long extinguished -- was renewed. Scarlett Johansson, the de facto sexiest woman in Hollywood, was officially single again and yours to lose."
