Scarlett was damn right awesome in her role as Black Widow in this film and showed she can most defiantly hold her own with the big boys. Whedon is a damn genius first Buffy now Black Widow.

I've never been more turned on or impressed by Scarlett than in the Avengers.

While i think the movie does a lot for every character, it truly shows how deadly and effective Widow is. Thank god Whedon was the man to do it, cause under lesser directors, you know she would of just been eye candy and nothing more.

I just thought of something, the scene in the trailer with Widow standing in front of some explosion, that was never in the movie right? If so I missed it.

I don't think she was quite as "hard" as Widow usually is, but I was more impressed by Scarlett than I thought I would be. A lot of reviewers pegged her as the weak link and I didn't think so at all.

I thought Black Widow was slightly better this time around. If part is that is the Whedon effect, then all power to it. But the best writing in the world can't make up for deficiencies in the actor, and I think Scarlet Johansson was horribly miscast as Black Widow. She just doesn't look like she has the physicality or the edge that you'd expect out of some kind of badass international superspy, and she's just as completely unbelievable holding a gun (even ignoring the whole dual wielding pistols thing) as she is punching somebody. And she can't act worth a damn either. I can totally see the casting directors for IM2 looking at her and thinking of her as just an ass and tits in a catsuit, because that's really all that the actress brings to the role IMO.

What movie were YOU watching? Scarlett may have had the best acting in the movie, second only to Tom Hiddleston.

Scarlett impressed me in this movie. She needs to work with Joss more.

Hated her in this film. Totally unnecessary role and over the top character. Entire reason she was in it is because they realized they needed a female character to make more money

The only thing bad about Johansson in Avengers was the hair style she was given. And that's me nitpicking to the max.

I gotta say, I had no idea what they would make her do during the all out war and was thoroughly impressed time and again what they did with BW.

I agree, I thought the stingers were cool and kicking ass with the alien gun was cool.

Why the hate on ScarJo? Even before The Avengers she was seen as a very talented young actress from movies like Lost In Translation and The Girl With The Pearl Earring. People made her out as if she's Megan Fox or something.

They really are and it's getting quite annoying.

Something I was a bit confused about and if someone could clear that up that would be great.

What was this "red mark" on her file that she kept talking about. Was it the entire thing with Clint saving her when she was ordered to kill her?

I'm confused about that.

The "red in my ledger" is a way of saying she has a debt to pay as in being in the red financially, her debt is based on the things she did before Clint saved her.

Oh I see, that makes a ton of sense. I feel stupid for not knowing that.

Thanks Hunter.

Just based on the comparison picture, I prefer her IM2 uniform because of the fit and color. As for the hair...well it's hard to make ScarJo look unattractive.

No problem Craig.

I liked how she was pivotal in the finale, as opposed to just a foot soldier.

She was definitely one of my favorite parts of the movie. Incredibly well developed and Scarlett did a terrific job.
