captain america: marvel’s the winter soldier

Natalia Alianovna Romanova[1] (Russian: Наталья Альяновна “Наташа Романоф” Романоф”; colloquial: Natasha Romanoff), aka: Black Widow (English: Black Widow; Russian: Чёрная Вдова; transliterated Chyornaya Vdova) is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by editor and plotter Stan Lee, screenwriter Don Rico and artist Don Heck, the character debuted in Tales of Suspense #52 (April 1964). The character was introduced as a Russian spy, an antagonist to the superhero Iron Man. She later defected to the United States, becoming an agent of the fictional organization S.H.I.E.L.D., and a member of the superhero team The Avengers.

American actress Scarlett Johansson portrayed the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films in Iron Man 2 (2010), The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Captain Marvel (2019) in a cameo, Avengers: Endgame (2019) and Black Widow (2021). Lake Bell voices alternate reality versions of the character from the Disney+ animated series What If…? (2021).

black widow: natasha will complete “civil war” mission

Following the release of the second trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are asking questions about the upcoming superhero adventure. And one of the aspects that raises questions is the evolution of the already very close relationship between Black Widow and Captain America.

Although introduced in the second installment of Iron Man, Natasha Romanoff, the character given life by Scarlett Johansson, has for several films been closely linked to that of Steve Rogers, the superhero played by Chris Evans. In The Winter Soldier, the second Captain America solo film, the two seemed to be very close. However, they later established a certain distance. Thus, in Age of Ultron Black Widow began a relationship with the Hulk and in Civil War the superheroine was initially alienated from Iron Man’s side.

But it is no less true that in the final stretch of the film Romanoff changes sides and favors Rogers. Something that had consequences for Black Widow going, like other characters such as the Winter Soldier, Falcon or Rogers himself, into hiding.

Avengers: Endgame (2019) spelled the end for some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s longest-running superheroes. Or so it seemed. If you remember the sequel Infinity War (2018), Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sacrificed himself by snapping his fingers to defeat Thanos (Josh Brolin), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) did the same for the team to get the Soul Gem and Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) decided to stay in the past to live alongside Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). When Endgame was released, in 2019, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe had to say goodbye to these characters. However, they didn’t count on the possibilities of the multiverse. This element, which is introduced in the current Phase 4 of the franchise, could explain why we will see some of the retired Avengers again. Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, has spoken about it recently.

Precisely other versions of the superheroes of the House of Ideas will appear in What if…?, the Disney+ animated fiction that asks what would happen if things had not happened as the Marvel Cinematic Universe has shown us to date.

Watching the films and series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney Plus following the chronological order, as the adventures occur in a linear time, is an easily argued mistake. There are scenes that cannot be understood in this way at all, and the planned emotional reaction of the viewers to what the characters face loses effectiveness. But it is also impossible. And the reason for this can be found in Black Widow (Cate Shortland, 2021).

The Civil War film narrates the dispute between the Marvel superheroes over the Sokovia Accords, which were intended to control their actions after the catastrophe in the country during The Age of Ultron (Joss Whedon, 2015). The group of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is against it, and is therefore pursued by the U.S. Government with Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) at the head and the help of the Avengers in favor of the international treaty, with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) at the helm.
