Avengers Assemble! New Photos of Scarlett "Black Widow" Johansson and Jeremy "Hawkeye" Renner on the Set

With one teammate equipped with a billion-dollar suit of flying battle armor (Iron Man, played by Robert Downey, Jr.) and others "juiced up" by the Super Solider Serum (Captain America, Chris Evans), gamma radiation (Hulk, Mark Ruffalo) and "god" blood (Thor, Chris Hemsworth) coursing through their veins, the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) have a lot to prove as the only non-powered members of The Avengers.
Sure, we know from Iron Man 2 that the Black Widow can kick the butt of a half-dozen trained security guards single-handedly, but how will she fare against aliens with high-tech weaponry? Hawkeye is an even more of a question mark. He had no trouble pulling back his bow in Thor when he thought he was aiming at a regular human, but will he be as cool and collected when staring down Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the god of mischief?
The answers to those questions won't be answered until The Avengers opens next summer. In the meantime, we can at least get an idea of how they will handle themselves as Avengers thanks to several new high-quality photos of the pair in action that have come out of the New York City set of the production.
