    Judging from the reactions I’m thinking the score will be somewhere in the range of 70-80 percent range. This might look like the weaker received Marvel flicks but it still likely ends up fresh on the tomato meter. So this will be in the same territory of Iron Man 2 & 3, Age Of Ultron, and Captain Marvel. The critical consensus won’t herald this as the next “Marvel masterpiece!” but it will generally be viewed as “good” or “passable.”

    I say somewhere in the low to mid 80's percentage wise.

    After all this time without a MCU film I really hope they come back strong with this.

    I think mid 70's-low 80's

    I think I'm going to really enjoy it personally. Can't wait to watch it next week

    A lot of reviews I’m seeing can basically be summed up as, “eh... it’s a okay film with some good acting stuff but it feels like it’s coming out a little too late after you ultimately know Natasha’s fate.” I don’t think I’ve that many reviewers particularly over the moon about the movie.

    I see this getting an 80s rating of certified fresh.

    I expect a drop to the high 70's.

    Every negative review hurts alot more than one or two positive reviews. And they will come in more frequently later. They normally do.

    Knowing Natasha's fate has never really bothered me, but if you're a big stickler for that and it takes you out of it it's fair to mention it.

    But me personally I could care less if this movie came out 2 years from now if it is good to me.

    I do agree with the one middling review that says that overall Natasha has been mishandled. Particularly in the Perlmutter era.

    It didn't bother me that she died and I've liked her overall but she could have been much more early on. Hopefully Natasha walked so Yelena can soar.

    I thought Natasha has been handled quite well in the earlier phases. A good mix of sex appeal and agency inherent in the character, to appeal to both genders. I definitely liked her chemistry with all the guys.

    She came into her own during CATWS where we really got to see her personality.

    Disappointed they never resolved her feelings for Bruce, but I suppose Bruce is destined to end up with Betty. I'm assuming he'll be back to Bruce by She-Hulk.. instead of an Animated Smart Hulk on a TV budget :hehe:

    It's unfortunate that Natasha had such a tragic end, but considering her dark past and those she's killed..it seems rather fitting. Like the way Jack Bauer ended up in the Russian prison. Those who live by the sword.

    Is it really that refreshing? She made a big splash with general movie-going audiences during her earlier appearances.

    Natasha wasn't really a divisive character. The only element that generated some controversy was the 'I can't have babies' stuff in AOU. However, any backlash to that was really minor and inconsequential.
    I wouldn't be surprised if they followed up with that plotpoint in this Black Widow film.

    Thor into Darkness

    That's an interesting way of putting it, Thor The Dark World?
