Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff in The AvengersScarlett Johansson's role in the upcoming Avengers film looks to be heavy on action if the latest pictures of the redhead hurtling around the set are anything to go by.

The actress has returned to the bright red barnet she sported in Iron Man 2 to reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, although she appears to have lost quite a few inches off the length. We're assuming the chop was for pragmatic action-film-related reasons - after all no-one likes getting a sweaty neck as they pelt around the city.

We're thinking there will probably also be quite a few fans of her costume - although we're presuming they will simply be admiring how utilitarian it is and how eminently suitable for dealing with ne'er-do-wells what with it being figure hugging enough not to get caught on things while Scarlett is running about.

Someone who appears entirely less bothered by the suitability of costumes for the action film lifestyle is Tom Hiddlestone's Loki:
