Captain America Magazine Cover Features Black Widow In That Butt Pose We’ve Come To Know & Hate

what is this I don't even

Empire Magazine has just released their February movie covers, and the good news is, one of them is Captain America: The Winter Solider-themed! The bad news is, poor Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow is once again forced that classic, female superhero position: the butt pose. Iconic, but in the worst way.

The cover also features Chris Evans as Captain America, rocking the new uniform; and Sebastian Stan as the guyliner-heavy Bucky Barnes (aka The Winter Soldier himself). Here’s the full cover for your viewing pleasure/exasperation:

Sigh. We’re really never going to escape the butt pose for female superheroes, are we? At least we got it from Legolas instead of Tauriel in the Desolation of Smaug poster.

Just because it never gets old, let’s just revisit artist Kevin Bolk’s take on that Avengers poster:

Thank you, duck-face Hulk, for marginally dissipating my Hulk-like butt-pose rage.
