Black Widow is one Marvel heroine that truly fails to get the spotlight she deserves. As a character, Black Widow has depth that hasn’t yet been explored on the big screen. While Marvel films have shown off her impressive combat abilities and tactical decision making, Black Widow’s origins and personal life are hardly explored in a meaningful way. It’s a shame because Black Widow has quite a bit of content to explore considering just how prevalent of a figure she’s been throughout Marvel’s history.
Outside of the character herself, it’s hard to ignore the new wave of appeal Black Widow has been given with the help of Scarlett Johansson. Her on-screen portrayal of Black Widow has been earning the character new fans ever since she took the role in 2010’s Iron Man 2. Since then she has been bringing the former Russian spy to life on screen in the Avengers and Captain America films in a way that is truly captivating.
