    While Johansson’s first Marvel appearance in Iron Man 2 may have relied somewhat upon sex appeal, this was quickly nixed in favor of characterizing her as the most cerebral Avenger. Her most important scenes in The Avengers relied upon her intelligence and skills as a spy, to the extent that she even managed to outwit Loki, the God of Lies. At the end of the movie, she’s the one who closes the portal that let all the aliens into New York. Then in Winter Soldier she’s given second billing to Captain America, a meaty role that showcases a wide-ranging skillset that stretches far beyond just “kicking ass.” At no point during any of these movies does she seduce anyone, by the way.

    Sadly, there’s very little sign of this character in the most easily accessible reviews of both The Avengers and Winter Soldier. Judging by the Guardian, WSJ, or New Yorker, Black Widow is more like a blow-up doll with a black belt. By their logic, if she’s wearing a tight outfit, then she must be a sexy ass-kicker, meaning that she must be the token female character, and therefore is little more than eye candy.

    With that thought process in mind, it must make perfect sense to relegate Black Widow to a single sniggering comment about her catsuit, because obviously Scarlett Johansson is just there for decoration. And if you’ve read in the New York Times that Black Widow is a token female character, then chances are you’ll have internalized that opinion before you even buy a ticket. The feedback loop of misogynist preconceptions continues on, and in the end, we all lose out.

    I have an almost three year old and I don’t know why I’m such a company man, like, we’ll take baths and I’ll put little Avengers there and I’m like, ‘Which one’s that?’ And he’s like, ‘Nick Fury.’ I go, ‘Which one do you like?’ And I’m holding Iron Man in front of him, and he goes, ‘Hawkeye!’

    It… It was beautiful, Ororo. Logan would have loved it.

    Maybe… but it won’t bring him back, will it?

    There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?

    Like Can I get at least a hell yeah?

    It’s almost like people really didn’t want a Wonder Woman movie They just wanted to complain about there not being one

    more like people are nervous about how DC will be handling her since her first appearance will be in the Batman V Superman movie that is so far getting no one’s hopes up. and because it’s part of a long string of movies planned to be based off of Man of Steel which wasn’t very good. the most i can offer at the moment is being cautiously hopeful while we wait for more information.

    Y’all missed my “believe it when I see it” post, apparently. (And I dare you to find a more rabid Wondy fan than me. I dare you.) IF this movie actually happens after the idea of it being in production-hell for the last 15 years, it will very likely be terrible. So yeah. Hard to get too excited.

    Plus Gal Gadot is racist and pro Israel and hates Palestinians (and Muslims?) sooooo yea not watching anything she’s in ever until she gives a huge public apology where she acknowledges what a total fucking fuckhead she is so okay yes plus this movie is most likely super terrible big fucking surprise there.

    Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.


    No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

    1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

    2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

    3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

    Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

    so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

    Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.

    There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.

    Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.

    The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?

    Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

    Sometimes clever posts die a quiet death in the abyss of the unreblogged. Some clever posts get attention, get comments, get better. Then there’s this one which I’ve watched evolve into a thing of brilliance.

    I thought I was finally starting to figure things out. It seems like any time you want to learn something, you have to unlearn something else. I thought I was a mutant— now it turns out I’m part alien. I’m a Pak-American part-alien morphogenic nerd.
