#WeWantWidow Photo Round-Up: Images From the Black Widow Flash Mob

Everyone wants Natasha!



This weekend, a bunch of geeky women, frustrated by the erasure of Black Widow from Age of Ultron merchandise and the hemming and hawing surrounding a Black Widow film, took to the streets in seventeen cities all over the world in a Black Widow Flash Mob designed to raise awareness about the fact that there’s a large demand for female characters like Black Widow in the sci-fi/fantasy/genre community. Check out some of the awesome Widows who gathered to make their voices heard in the photos below!
