Nerdy Femme Fatales

Scarlett Johansson in Wizard Magazine

— November 15, 2008 — Celebs
Scarlett Johansson is on the December 2008 issue of Wizard Magazine and she manages to deliver a delightful plug of her upcoming film 'The Spirit.'

Wizard Magazine caters to the nerdy set and portrays ScarJo in a contradictory mixture of a dork who is also a very bad girl.

The caption on the cover says, "The Spirit Star on Frank Miller, Sam Jackson and Being a Bad Girl." This is a reference to the movie's director Miller, ScarJo's costar Samuel L. Jackson and Johansson's femme fatale, badass character called Silken Floss.

All this explains Wizard Magazine's end-of-year cover and why they chose to blend the stereotypical glasses-wearing nerd with the cleavage-sporting, black leather glove-wearing badass girl portrayed by Scarlett Johansson in 'The Spirit.'
