Marvel's femme fatale and D.C. Comics' Man Of Steel put their comic book rivalries aside for new Huawei ads.

Black Widow and Superman have teamed up to rave about a new smartphone.

Scarlett Johansson and Henry Cavill have signed on to front a new campaign for the Huawei P9 device and the stars, who play major roles in the Marvel and D.C. Comics movie universes, didn't need to be asked twice to be part of the ads.

"I have a genuine passion for technology, so I'm excited by the opportunities created by the P9 dual lens," Superman star Henry says. "I'm impressed by the partnership of Huawei and Leica Camera in their engineering of a true high performance smartphone camera. They've done this and managed to package it into a fantastic device as well."

And Scarlett agrees, adding, "The art of photography really resonates with me. It was exciting to see Huawei is partnering with the world's iconic camera brand Leica to create the amazing device.

"I was delighted to work with Huawei on this project as I love the way it invites us to feed our curiosity and share new perspectives."

In the pair's new Huawei ad, Henry wanders around an Asian city taking random cellphone shots and texting them to the actress, who responds by posing with hunky extras on a movie set and sending them to the Brit.

Cavill looks like he's campaigning to become the next James Bond in the shoot, wearing a tuxedo and bow-tie, while sexy Scarlett opts for a new Spanish western look, complete with matching denim jeans and shirt, bolero hat, bootlace tie and neckerchief.

And the actors appeared to enjoy each other's company when they finally got together for the print ads, laughing and joking for the camera.
