Last week we went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It was an awesome movie! I was so excited to see this movie and it didn't disappoint. I'm a big Marvel fan and Captain America has proved to be one of my favourite superheroes from the Avengers. Chris Evans does an amazing job and I've thoroughly enjoyed both Captain America movies.
One of my favourite things about Captain America: The Winter Soldier was Black Widow. I've talked about Black Widow before after seeing The Avengers. I've only ever encountered Black Widow in the odd comic, since I read mainly X-Men comics. And I've never been a huge Scarlett Johansson fan but she does a pretty fantastic job playing Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. I honestly didn't realize how large of a role she would have in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
As a female who reads a lot of comics, watches a ton of superhero movies and television shows, it's so refreshing to see a real woman playing a kickass female role and not having to degrade herself. Sure, depending on the artist, Black Widow can show off a decent amount of cleavage. But this wasn't the case in the movie version of Black Widow. In all the movies she's appeared in now, she comes off as strong, powerful AND sexy.
Who knows what will happen, but I really think they should make a stand alone Black Widow movie. She's tough and doesn't rely on the men to save her. And she's not wearing some skimpy outfit that barely covers her arse or has her breasts falling out of her suit. I respect her and cheer for her. My inner child wants to be her. Ok, maybe even adult-me wants to be her too.
This movie made me even more excited for the next Avengers movie. I really can't wait to see everyone together again.
Have you see Captain America: The Winter Soldier yet?
