I can’t read your heartbeat. And I don’t know if that means you’ve perfected lying—or if you just don’t know the difference anymore. Please leave while I’m unsure.

black widow (2014) #01-04

There is an amazing amount of gripping material to be explored with the Winter Soldier, including his past as a Soviet Agent that can easily tie into the back story of Natasha Romanov. Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada teased huge things coming for the Black Widow post “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and while a solo turn would be great, her story could also easily continue in a Bucky Barnes-headlining film. Quite simply, for a character who’s been a modern comics staple for less than a decade, there is so much choice Winter Soldier material to explore that a movie spinning out of the events of the new “Captain America” film would be a natural narrative progression. —

I’m getting pretty tired of the suggestion that a “co-lead” position in a movie headlining a dude is an acceptable substitute for a Black Widow movie, from fellow fans and from Kevin Feige. All that gripping material about dark pasts, Soviet spies, and red ledgers is territory Natasha owned before Bucky got there, on the big screen and in the funny books. Why not continue the Winter Soldier plotline in her film? Why is the “natural narrative progression” the other way around?

and can we stop pretending that her story continuing is the same thing as her headlining? it’s not. it’s not at all.
