The Black Widow movies will be released later this year – and fans are looking forward to what the character’s next MCU release has to offer. The last time we saw Natasha Romanoff she sacrificed herself Avengers: Endgame but Disney’s decision to release her solo film after her death generated much intrigue and excitement.
Black Widow is one of the most famous Marvel characters, having appeared in seven films to date. Now let’s take a look at how those hit movies went out in the audience on IMDb and which one tops the stack.
7 Iron Man 2: 7/10
Natasha Romanoff made her first MCU appearance back in 2010 Iron man 2. Black Widow helps Tony Stark to defeat the dangerous Ivan Wanko, who is seeking revenge on Tony Stark after the billionaire’s father wiped out Wanko’s family, albeit by accident.
It’s not a movie that many fans love to review, but the fact that it gets to the bottom of this list, with a respectable seven out of 10, is a testament to the Marvel movie. It seems that even the bad guys (and make no mistake, the blockbuster is far from perfect) seem to leave the audience quite satisfied.
6 Age of Ultron: 7.3 / 10
Age of Ultron it was the Avengers’ second film and, in the eyes of many, was not up to the same high standards as the first. Once again, however, it scored relatively high among the IMDB audience, achieving a very respectable 7.3.
Black Widow spends much of the film battling her feelings for Bruce Banner, but she is also a vital resource in the final showdown against Ultron. Its crucial intervention prevents the cyborg from switching to Vision, allowing Vision to make its choice and to side with the good guys. And the chemistry of Scarlet Johansson with Mark Ruffalo is superb, making you really want them to fall in love and settle together.
5 Winter Soldier: 7.7 / 10
Captain America is forced to go ashore Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And, to prevent Hydra from breaking down not only S.H.I.E.L.D. but also many other people, he asks for help from Black Widow and Sam Wilson.
Natasha Romanoff does not disappoint Cap, successfully helping him to remain low and therefore to reign supreme over Alexander Pierce, crooked and corrupt, at the end of the film. It is at its brazen, the best in all the hit film and the way it fools Pierce, just before his death, is one of the MCU’s biggest twists to date.
4 Civil war: 7.8 / 10
Civil war it’s basically an Avengers movie. Tony Stark and Captain America find their feud on the Sokovia Agreements that divide the team and the gang is forced to choose the sides, before engaging in a superb battle all orchestrated by the slimy and friendly Helmut Zemo.
The black widow shows her tender side in this. While he’s as bright as ever on the battlefield, he helps Black Panther in the aftermath of his father’s death and allows Cap to escape with Bucky Barnes. It’s her courage to do the right thing, no matter how difficult, that makes her such a strong female character. And this film was another example of how brilliant Natasha Romanoff is.
3 Avengers: 8/10
The first Avengers the film would always have been difficult for Disney. But somehow they did it and Black Widow is one of the main characters in the whole hit film.
Its introduction is certainly iconic. She manages to defeat an entire room of enemies despite being tied to a chair and is the first film in which we see romantic nuances between herself and Bruce Banner. Scarlet Johansson’s chemistry with Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is also superb, making you really believe that the duo have known each other for many years and consequently have a close relationship.
2 Infinity War: 8.5 / 10
There was a more shocking comic book movie than Avengers: Infinity War? Maybe not. Black Widow finds it difficult to stand out in a film in which every single superhero known to man is practically involved. But the blockbuster itself is surprising and deserves its big IMDB score.
The climax of Natasha Romanoff in this is when she, Okoye and Scarlet Witch unite to eliminate Proxima Midnight from the action. It’s a scene that’s pure female power – and we love it.
1 Endgame: 8.5 / 10
It appears that IMDB was unable to find anything to separate Avengers: Infinity War is Avengers: Endgame. While Black Widow didn’t play a prominent role in the first one, it did give the sequel a prominent role and makes the film all its own. Scarlet Johansson, in this, gives his best performance to date.
You sincerely feel for Black Widow, whose devastation for what Thanos did in Infinity War is evident to everyone. You understand the character and this makes it sacrificial towards the end, where she gives up her life so that Hawkeye can live and that the Avengers can get the Soul Stone, a little more impactful.
