Black Widow

  1. Spoiler Alert: We Are All Monsters

    On that controversial moment from Age of Ultron.

    If you're anything like me (and I don't recommend it), it was a source of endless delight but no real surprise when Joss Whedon (I shall henceforth call him Joss; you're not the director of me) was chosen to direct The Avengers, because the Joss Whedon oeuvre is always, at bottom, about what it means to be human.

  7. Mark Ruffalo Preaches Truth, Demands More Black Widow Merch From Marvel

    It's no secret that Marvel has excluded Black Widow from almost all of their Avengers: Age of Ultron merch. But while they might be inclined to ignore the product-buying public (for reasons unknown), they certainly can't ignore the attention drawn to it by one of their own. Hulk smash the patriarchy!

    THIS. LOOKS. BAD.

    We here at The Mary Sue spend a lot of time analyzing some of the less blatant ways sexism manifests in the Marvel Universe (lack of Black Widow merch, for example), but it's one thing for Marvel and Disney to exclude female fans for frustrating financial reasons and another for the films' actors and writer to elect to use sexist and ableist language. How about not, dudes? How about not?

  12. Invisible Women: Why Marvel’s Gamora & Black Widow Were Missing From Merchandise, And What We Can Do About It

    Disney does not care about Marvel’s female market, which makes us virtually invisible. I could probably populate Pluto with the amount of Princess items Disney makes. But where are Gamora and Black Widow? This exclusion of women from Marvel movie merchandise is completely purposeful. I know; I was there.

    Her sticks! Eeeeeee!

    We were as bummed as anybody when the first batch of Age of Ultron Funko Pop! tie-ins featured all the dudes of the team—including The Vision, even!—and nary a Natasha in sight.
