lmao we’re all gonna be halfway to our graves and still complaining about how we never got a black widow movie and someone’s gonna be like “it’s in development!!! just look at the imdb page from 15 years ago on your holographic google glass!!!”
kevin feige’s cryogenically preserved corpse’s android mouthpiece will occasionally release statements like “we only put out 57 films a year…is it worth it to divert attention from our established franchises……maybe in the future that will be a fun thing to explore……..”
ok so i was watching this gif carefully
and when i first saw it i was like “aww Nat jumping into steve’s lap that’s so cute she’s like AHH STEVE SAVE ME” and then i was thinking ‘well she probably realized he’s way stronger than she is and could help shield her if they crashed’
but then i kept watching it and i noticed how she immediately pulls him forward
and first i thought it was the momentum of her jump but you can clearly see in the gif how she gets settled (quickly) THEN pulls him close to her
and then i realized
that is a bullet hole.
Nat somehow knew EXACTLY where Steve was gonna get shot at, jumped up into his seat, and saved him
Natasha Fucking Romanoff
she didn’t just jump in the front to save steve, tws shot at her first
she also pushed sam away from the bullet bc she knew he’s next
all of this in the span of 3 seconds how fast do u think her brain works i mean DAMN
I…thought this was clear, but apparently not, so I’m really glad someone has deconstructed it! But the thing is, this is the kicker, okay: It’s the payoff for earlier, when Natasha asked if Steve would trust her to save his life. It’s not just her being a) A GENIUS and b) BADASS, it’s a really important character moment because it’s making those words not just an idea or a promise but a reality. It tells us a lot about how she feels about him now, and also makes sense because, well. Natasha and debts.
