It’s the way she casually picks up her heels after beating the shit out of everyone in the room.
I can never not reblog this scene. It’s my favourite thing.
And how Whedon didn’t need to erase her femininity to have her being kick-ass.
I like how you put a positive spin on the inherent mysogyny of a woman having to be in cocktail wear for her first fight scene of the movie.
Ok no sorry, please, I really don’t like getting involved on tumblr posts but this really annoyed me. OK vivelafat, I understand what you’re saying but this was really not sexist. Ok yes this was not the best way to introduce Black Widow but at the same time, they showed that Natasha Romanov could completely own any sexist misogynistic bull crap that the guy holding her hostage could throw at her. This scene was important because it would have been so easy for whedon and any other producer to show Romanov as a typically masculine character. This scene, was perhaps yes, designed to show off Romanov’s body and femininity, what makes you think that there is anything wrong with that?
Also, lovely tumblr peer, has it escaped your notice that she was UNDERCOVER. DID YOU WATCH THIS SCENE, THE MAN INTERROGATING HER WAS IN FORMAL MILITARY DRESS, AND HIS SIDEKICK WAS WEARING A TUX. Natasha Romanov is a bad ass spy who just came from a high profile cocktail party, and what, you expected her to be wearing sweatpants and a hoodie? This scene shows that Natasha Romanov is aware that she can be seen as weak and PLAYS OFF THAT TO HER ADVANTAGE. Not only that but it also shows that she could own your ass any day, even in black high heels and a tight dress. The moves that she did in this sequence would be extremely difficult to pull of in t shirt and sweat pants, and this scene shows her doing it in a LBD. This scene does show off Scarlet Johannsons figure, but at the same time it shows that Black Widow could take down any weak-ass mob bosses who think she’s weak, no matter what she’s wearing.
azalea, nightshade, tiger lily
bird of paradise, delphinium, zinnia
for the anon who asked if i was doing more (x), and visardist who suggested zinnias for sam (x) - i decided to add more variety for sam just because, while sticking to comic book falcon colours for the zinnias.
for natasha: azaleas for temperance and passion (apparently sending a bouquet of azaleas was quite a known death threat as azaleas are actually toxic), nightshade (as anon suggested) as its other name is belladona such that nat is as deadly as she is beautiful, and tiger lilies for her passion and feminity.
for sam: because the bird of paradise looks akin to a colourful bird in flight- that is what sam is: distinctive and spectacular, blue delphiniums for loyalty and levity, zinnias for goodness and constancy/lasting affection.
I have some beef with the Black Widow poster.
i cant even explain how hilarious i found this poster when i saw it. absolutely incredible
If people don’t think this looks ridiculous then you need to look at this. I get they photoshop and sexualize in the media but…at least make it look GOOD!
“He is a combination of mercurial intellectual ability, emotional ambiguity, rakish charm, charisma and provocative wit. He has a wicked inclination to mischief, underneath which is a well of spiritual pain. Both these aspects are central to his depth as a character: his unashamed and perverse delight in creating chaos; and his capacity for raw emotional expression.” (x)

Like can we appreciate Tony’s fabulous eyelashes, the awesomeness of Rhodey, these gorgeous ladies, and the fact that even Maria Hill and The Punisher are in this movie.
