We saw some bum and maybe some boob, but it was a stand in. They remark on it in the commentary.
In my experience, many ladies (which is a category that includes a great number of feminists) don't really care about nudity in a work (tv, film, even comics, whatever) if people are getting it on (they may even enjoy it- most women I know are addicted to true blood- which seems to be a supernatural soft core as far as I can tell) the skin is actually a part of the action (even if it's not integral to the story, it's there and they spend time on it). Looking at most of mainstream comics, you really can't say the same. Ladies are just scantily clad for- why exactly? Most of them aren't even actively trying to seduce anyone with their scantily-ness.
The better recent cultural touchstone is the fascination many network tv shows have with strip club scenes that don't contribute to the action in any way and are only there to halfheartedly show some background ladies in bikinis.
