One Natasha to rule them all: Black Widow’s most memorable moments in the MCU
After numerous release date changes, we are finally getting the standalone Black Widow movie that we all deserve! MARVEL fans have seen her kickass moments and heard her most memorable lines. And with that, we pay homage by taking a look at some of Natasha Romanoff’s defining moments in the MCU films.
Iron Man 2 (2010)
This film from more than a decade ago ushered the first live-action superhero debut of Natasha on the big screen. Black Widow fans were treated to pure excitement as Agent Romanoff finally displayed her highly acrobatic fighting skills — a clear showing that she is ready to become a vital cog for the Avengers for years to come.
The Avengers (2012)
Who could ever forget Black Widow’s interrogation scene from the first-ever Avengers movie? It shows Natasha all tied up to a chair and being interrogated by baddies. Thinking that they’ve got her all in trouble, Natasha receives a call from Coulson asking her to come in. From there, she spits the iconic line: “Let me put you on hold”, before taking apart the bad guys with brutal headbutts and throw kicks. Vintage Natasha.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
This goes without saying that Black Widow is not just about lightning-quick combat expertise. She is also a master spy. During a scene where antagonist Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford), seemed to have succeeded in laying out his grand scheme, Natasha reveals herself as a councilwoman and exposes the HYDRA operatives to the world. With her flawless espionage skills and a bit of self-sacrifice, Black Widow has proven that you don’t need superpowers to save the day.
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Black Widow isn’t Black Widow if you don’t put the ‘double-crossing’ element in her character development. In Civil War, our beloved Avengers took their respective sides to go with Cap and Tony to fight for what they believed in. As the internal war breaks loose, there has to be someone who will come out as a betrayer and will switch sides. Guess who? Yes, Natasha did it thinking it was the right thing to do.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Let’s admit it, Black Widow has become the soul of the Avengers. Being an OG member, she has had a strong connection with Clint and was the only few who could reason out with the Hulk and talk him down. Besides her skills as an assassin, her worth beyond all the fights and mind games was also unwavering to the point that she made the ultimate sacrifice in order to obtain the Soul Stone. The rest is history.
