Scarlett Johansson is no stranger to being super, heck, with her turns in Iron Man 2, The Avengers and the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
But, there is something uniquely super about her character in Luc Besson’s Lucy!
Besson is one of our favorite filmmakers, what with his work on The Fifth Element, The Professional and La Femme Nikita. And as you can tell from those films, he has a knack for creating uber-strong female characters. It appears that they have all led up to Lucy.
The trailer for Lucy has just arrived, and from what we can tell, someone has put drugs into her stomach and expected her to be a drug mule.
But, when they leak -- the side effect is something completely unexpected. Lucy gets superpowers and it appears nothing can stop her. To say she wants justice for what “they” did to her just scratches the surface of Lucy’s new mission in life.
Lucy lands August 8 and also stars Morgan Freeman.
Universal has also released a series of stills from Lucy. Click through and check out Scarlett becoming super and then watch The Avengers online to compare her "super" parts!
