Look at the first gif. That’s Natasha Romanov, master assassin, who just went toe-to-toe with the Hulk and lived. She’s just been told her partner in crime needs to be taken out.
Look at the second gif. That’s Natasha Romanov, master of the murder game, and she’s preparing to take out one of the only people in the world that she’s close to.
Look at the third gif. That’s Agent Romanov, legend of the criminal underworld, and she’s started putting together everything she knows about her target, every weakness she can exploit, every way she could get the upper hand.
Look at the fourth gif. That’s the Black Widow, the woman that makes Mob Bosses wet the bed, who haunts the nightmares of every damn low-life in the crime circle, and she motherfucking copies.
a reason I love this scene so much is because she was /scared/ of the hulk, like any sane human would be. and she was never portrayed as weaker for being scared, and she fought past it like an actual character. and that’s what I really love: it was a dimension, not just the one dimensional “strong” women characters that we’ve been getting (not that they’re all bad. Zoe, man) that are never ever allowed to be both scared and fucking badass and capable. and we need more characters that can be both, or badass and mourning, or badass but still feminine (stereotypically). because that shows females watching this that yes, you can be scared out of your fucking mind and still be someone who is capable enough to be the best in the world.

#i like when people say omg loki is the most emotionally hurt person in the entire galaxy omgosh cutesie loki #and i sit here like…. #thor #bby… are you ok? #do you need something maybe sth that doesn’t hurt you every second you breathe?!
I get so fucking pissed off when people ignore just how much emotional trauma Thor had been through and has dealt with essentially alone. He has to remain the strong one, the rock even as his world is falling apart around him because he feels he no longer has the luxury to let go the way Loki has in terms of expressing pain. His friends and family depend on him to keep it together.
I don’t reblog much Loki stuff, but that was one of my favorite moments. His face, you guys.

What the Avengers where doing during the events of Iron Man 3
Here is the required post about the Avengers film, that Loki interrogation sequence, and themes of weakness, expectation, and vulnerability. When I say required, I mean everybody else is doing it, but that I will soldier on bravely, just like every other person on the internet in love with their own opinion.
So, Natasha’s most constant recurring themes are themes of control. Comic books are vast and largely un-sum-up-able, but every character has central metaphors that shine through multiple arcs and adaptations, and I think questions of control, questions of agency, are a huge part of her equation. Duane Swierczynski is the current writer on the DC series Birds of Prey, but he also did a run on Black Widow, and this is something he had to say about it:From the very beginning, she had no say in her own destiny, which is a very noir, very dark kind of outlook on life. And yet, she fought back from that and has now taken her own life in her own hands again. I guess I respond to those kinds of characters. Characters that seem screwed, who are also talented but are put in a difficult position and who fight their way out of it. That’s what appeals to me about her. Despite the convoluted, difficult life, she’s come out on top. And now her mission, the way I see it, is that she wants to free other people from being controlled and used. That’s her thing, I believe, and why she is equally super hero as she is a spy.
Natasha is someone whose specific skillset was forced upon her, something beyond her immediate control, but it’s also the only means she has to take her own life back.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen an archer in a film run out of arrows or collect used arrows to reuse later.
Accuracy: You’re doing it right.
accuracy? this is a movie about a small band of fantabulous people with random superpowers who defeat an alien invasion led by a guy with golden goat horns and you’re worried about accuracy?
firstly: tony, nat, and clint do not have superpowers, they rely on their skills to survive
secondly: thor is not human, other than the use of his hammer, he is relying on the natural strength and fighting abilities of his people
thirdly: bruce and steve were both perfectly ordinary until science got involved
lastly: what supervillain doesn’t have at least one questionable fashion decision?
i’m gonna cry omg
