Wing-Man, America-Man, & Crimson Matroyshka On “America-Man:
Civil Unrest”, Crimson Matroyshka’s Solo Movie, & Friendship
Looks like “Black Widow” is finally getting her own movie. Although I’m glad to hear about it I hope this isn’t something rushed out due to fan pressure. I know Scarlett Johansson probably wouldn’t slum it and do TV, but it would be awesome to see her on “Daredevil”, as he and “Black Widow” had a thing for a while. Or “Daredevil” could show up in her movie, but that probably won’t happen either.
I re-watched “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” yesterday to make sure it was really better than “Civil War” (it is) and one of the things I liked most is Cap and Black Widow. What I especially like it that they’re NOT a couple. That would’ve been so cliche and terrible. She’s a buddy and better yet a buddy trying to get him some. I also re-watched “Age Of Ultron” and this might seem crazy but I think I like it more than “Civil War” too despite its many flaws. “Ultron” > “Zemo” and “Hulk” and “Thor” take things to another level. One of the biggest things “Age Of Ultron” messes up is “Black Widow”. One thing my friend Chris brought one time when talking about it is that one of the key things about “Black Widow” in the original “Avengers” movie is that she isn’t all butthurt about her past. She did bad stuff, she’s trying to do good stuff now. She fakes being all messed up about her past to trick Loki, but that’s it. Then in “Age Of Ultron” we get her “ballerina” sequence which I think would’ve more effective had we not seen it. (In fact I think they should cut all the mind control stuff. Also where are Scarlet Witch’s mind controlling powers in “Civil War”?) Then she REALLY throws it out there to Banner who rejects her because… I honestly still don’t know… He’s like “I dunno if she likes me” and even Cap’s like “bruh!”. Then she makes it even more clear and he’s like “I’m a monster and I can’t have kids” and she’s like “me too”. And then… Nothing… Then “Black Widow” get captured by “Ultron” which is really weak! Then at the end Banner takes a plane and flies off for some reason. Hope you get better luck in your movie Widow.
Tomorrow Special-Girl, Spiderous-Man, and Quickie talk about switching sides. Hope you enjoy, and see ya then!
