Does a Naked Rooney Mara Poster Undermine The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? [NSFW]

Is the image of a naked, pierced Rooney Mara opposed to the antimisogyny message of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? The newly released poster moves the date away from Mara's chest, revealing her bare breasts and pierced nipples. Which is fine, except the story condemns the objectification of women and contains an explicit rape-revenge against the people who've degraded her. Sure, Salander spends some time consensually nude in the book -- but so does Blomkvist, and Daniel Craig is wearing layers. Does this poster contrast with the premise of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo? Or is it more about Salander being a bad-ass? [ICYDK]
