"In the end, Captain America does not make the heroic sacrifice, thus further proving that Black Widow can handle the emotional weight of being a lead character. As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice."- x (via jediemma)
FAKE MOVIE (PLOT) MEME: Black Widow (2015)
The Winter Soldier has disappeared. Natasha Romanoff has a debt to settle with the man who has been nothing more than a realized ghost story. However, when the gun barrel is pointed at the man’s head, she cannot pull the trigger. Perhaps something Steve Rogers had said rang true. The price of freedom is high, and the only question remained was who was going to pay it. Having paid for her own freedom in blood, Agent Romanoff steps back into the Red Room regime to save a World War II soldier from the horrors created inside of him.
Because I’m tired of the “Steve sucks at modern technology” trope. He was picking up and using HYDRA tech that was powered by the tesseract in WWII. And user interfaces were pretty un-intuitive back then — knobs labeled in German or French, most likely. And think about the number of dials and thingamabobs on an airplane control panel! Yes, he’s a man out of time, but it’s probably the social stuff that’s much harder to adjust to. (You can tell he’s recently-thawed because he still insists on wearing at least a button-down shirt and suspenders when out in public.)
THIS IS AMAZING!!!!
