Now that’s hot.

Scarlett Johansson continued to set up the entire Universe on Thursday thanks to the release of the poster for the Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, in which she plays the iconic role of Maggie.

Laying down and holding her hand in her hair, the 28-year-old beauty — who is dating French journalist Romain Dauriac —  gives the camera a smoldering look, teasing a play may go down as being even hotter than the film version, which starred Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman back in 1958.

The play marks Johansson’s first trip back to Broadway since her critically acclaimed debut in A View From the Bridge, for which she received a Best Featured Actress in a Play Tony, in 2009.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof costars Benjamin Walker, of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson  and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter fame.

The 15-week engagement is now playing in previews.
