Chop and Change: The Shifting Nature of Natasha Romanov

In light of recent controversy surrounding Black Widow’s character, here’s a really good and in-depth analysis of the character. I have to admit that I initially jumped on the “This is so poorly written and out of character of the Widow” but after much thought – it has been a week since I saw the movie – I think what this blogger says holds water.

On a side note, I’m almost done with school so my analysis of this semester will be coming soon!

SPOILERS AHEAD

The most prominent female superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Natasha Romanov, aka Black Widow, has made appearances in four movies over six years: Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and now Avengers: Age of Ultron. This forces us to take Natasha not as different iterations of a character but as a constantly evolving singularity. Her arc is less of an arc and more of a Rubik’s cube, with different facets aligning to reveal new elements to her character.
