Costume design in CATWS: Nick Fury, Black Widow, and SHIELD.
In the MCU, S.H.I.E.L.D. is portrayed as a quasi-governmental Men in Black organization. It’s mostly populated by military types, agents like Coulson, jumpsuit-wearing Helicarrier personnel, and a smattering of individuals like Black Widow and Hawkeye. Fury is in charge, with Maria Hill as the deputy director and Alexander Pierce as his immediate superior, a kind of liaison between S.H.I.E.L.D. and various world governments.Up until Captain America: The Winter Soldier Fury had been the authority figure, a character who swoops in and solves problems or tells characters what to do. He was basically a trigger-happy, morally ambiguous Gandalf figure.CATWS introduced a much-needed new dimension of fallibility to Nick Fury, as well as showing him inside S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters for the first time. Alexander Pierce, in his old-fashioned but stylish three-piece suits, both fits in with those surroundings and represents the political establishment. Meanwhile Fury, with his ostentatious black leather outfits, does not exactly seem like he belongs inside a grey office building.

Costume design in CATWS: Nick Fury, Black Widow, and SHIELD.

Marvel Studios obviously had to keep Back Widow’s red hair for the movies, but instead of going for a natural shade like Pepper Potts, they went for a bright red tone that could only come from a bottle. That’s where my comparison with Nick Fury comes in. I think that Black Widow purposefully dyes her hair such a noticeable shade because it then becomes her defining feature.

The result? As soon as she changes her hair colour to something else, she can easily slip under the radar. A reverse disguise like Nick Fury’s carefully constructed image as a leather-wearing badass, which allowed him to disappear just by putting on a hoodie and sunglasses instead.

I would love to do a superhero movie! I would have loved to have played Black Widow. … A couple of times I’ve gotten really close. The problem is, if I do a superhero movie, I don’t want to be the girlfriend. I don’t want to be the daughter. I want to wear a fucking cool costume with a scar on my face, with fight scenes. That’s what I’d love. Jessica Chastain absolutely nailing it  (via micdotcom)

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 

image

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 

image

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

image

that is a bullet hole. 

Nat somehow knew EXACTLY where Steve was gonna get shot at, jumped up into his seat, and saved him

image

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

image

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.
