Let’s be honest everyone would rather watch a Black Widow movie than antman
I’d rather watch Black Widow file her taxes than an Ant Man movie
Well you have to admit her work-related expenses would tell some pretty interesting stories all by themselves
Black Widow orders towels online: the movie
Black Widow reorganizes her sock drawer: the movie
Black Widow cleans her gutters: the movie
Still more exciting than Ant Man

Marvel Studios obviously had to keep Back Widow’s red hair for the movies, but instead of going for a natural shade like Pepper Potts, they went for a bright red tone that could only come from a bottle. That’s where my comparison with Nick Fury comes in. I think that Black Widow purposefully dyes her hair such a noticeable shade because it then becomes her defining feature.
The result? As soon as she changes her hair colour to something else, she can easily slip under the radar. A reverse disguise like Nick Fury’s carefully constructed image as a leather-wearing badass, which allowed him to disappear just by putting on a hoodie and sunglasses instead.
There’s a post going around critiquing the idea that Natasha had any kind of control over her causeway fight with Bucky, that it “dehumanizes” her by not letting her have faults/get into trouble. Except it doesn’t, because she was not “terrified out of her mind.”
We’ve seen what she looks like when she is that scared when she was up against the Hulk. Natasha facing the Hulk looks nothing like Natasha tangling with Bucky. You didn’t see her smiling at the Hulk when she was running from him, even those few times she managed to slip out of his reach successfully before he caught up with her. Furthermore, that was a very deliberately filmed reaction shot. The directors wanted that smile in there, to show her state of mind, and they made sure Scarlett would be able to concentrate on the perfect smile – she was literally given running shoes to wear for that one shot so she could focus on her acting and not worry about tripping in her high heeled boots.
I don’t know how anyone could miss the symbolism of Nat cracking his goggles and forcing him to remove them, giving us the first glimpse of the man behind the mask? She opened his eyes. Not only that, but she’d made him angry, the first sign of human emotion he displays in the movie - a rather emotional outburst of rage as he shoots down at her.
(under a cut because this got a bit longer)
