Natasha held her own pretty damn well in The Avengers. She was right in the thick of the fighting at ground zero for the Chitauri invasion, took out Barton in hand-to-hand combat, skyjacked a Chitauri sled and used the dead body of a soldier she had killed to steer it and was the one who closed the portal to end the battle. If that isn't "holding her own," I don't know what is.

When people diss the Black Widow's contributions to the Avengers I sometimes think they watched an entirely different movie from the one the rest of the world saw. "What's that girl gonna do with the little gun?" Cap a ****ing alien in the head, take his bigger gun and slaughter a bunch more of his friends. Black Widow gave a master class in badass in that movie, and she didn't need superpowers to do it.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
