Johansson will also star in her own upcoming Black Widow solo film.
The Black Widow First Appearances
The Black Widow’s first appearances were as a recurring, non-costumed, Russian-spy antagonist in the feature “Iron Man”, beginning in Tales of Suspense #52 April 1964. Five issues later, she recruits the besotted costumed archer and later superhero Hawkeye to her cause.
Her government later supplies her with her first Black Widow costume and high-tech weaponry, but she eventually defects to the United States after appearing, temporarily brainwashed against the U.S., in the superhero-team series The Avengers #29 July 1966. The Widow later becomes a recurring ally of the team before officially becoming its sixteenth member many years later.
The Black WidowRed Room
Natalia Alianovna Romanoff was born in 1984 in Stalingrad. At a young age, Romanoff was recruited by the KGB. At a Red Room facility, she endured both an education and indoctrination into the world of spy-craft. Romanoff excelled in this strict training environment and soon became regarded as a master spy and one of the world’s greatest assassins.
Her ruthless effectiveness in later years earned her the code name, Black Widow. As a final ceremony to complete her training, Romanoff was sterilized, as to avoid any distractions and focus solely on her missions, something she deeply regretted later in her life.
There, she is biotechnologically and psycho-technologically enhanced—which provides a rationale for her unusually long and youthful lifespan. During that time she had some training under the Winter Soldier, and the pair even had a short romance.
Each Black Widow is deployed with false memories to help ensure her loyalty. Romanova eventually discovers this, including the fact that she had never, as she had believed, been a ballerina. She further discovers that the Red Room is still active as “2R”.
The Black Widow Avengers
Romanova grew up to serve as a femme fatale. She was assigned to assist Boris Turgenev in the assassination of Professor Anton Vanko for defecting from the Soviet Union, which served as her first mission in the United States.
Natasha and Turgenev infiltrated Stark Industries as part of the plan. She attempted to manipulate information from American defense contractor Tony Stark, and inevitably confronted his superhero alter ego, Iron Man.
The pair then battled Iron Man, and Turgenev stole and wore the Crimson Dynamo suit. Vanko sacrificed himself to save Iron Man, killing Turgenev in the process, using an unstable experimental laser light pistol. Romanova later meets the criminal archer Hawkeye and sets him against Iron Man, and later helped Hawkeye battle Iron Man.
The Black Widow Hawkeye
Later, Natasha again attempted to get Hawkeye to help her destroy Iron Man. The pair almost succeeded, but when Black Widow was injured, Hawkeye retreated to get her to safety. During this period, Romanova was attempting to defect from the Soviet Union and began falling in love with Hawkeye, weakening her loyalty to her country.
When her employers learned the truth, the KGB had her gunned down, sending her to a hospital, convincing Hawkeye to go straight and seek membership in the Avengers. The Red Room kidnapped and brainwashed her again, and with the Swordsman and the first Power Man, she battled the Avengers.
She eventually broke free from her psychological conditioning with the help of Hawkeye, and successfully defected, having further adventures with Spider-Man, with Hawkeye, and with Daredevil. She ultimately joins the Avengers as a costumed heroine herself.
The Black Widow S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil
Later still, she begins freelancing as an agent of the international espionage group S.H.I.E.L.D. She is sent on a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. mission to China by Nick Fury. There, with the Avengers, she battles Col. Ling, Gen. Brushov, and her ex-husband the Red Guardian. For a time, as writer Les Daniels noted in a contemporaneous study in 1971.
her left-wing upbringing was put to better use, and she has lately taken to fighting realistic oppressor-of-the-people types. She helps young Puerto Ricans clean up police corruption and saves young hippies from organized crime. The splash page of Amazing Adventures #3 Nov. 1970 reflects the recent trend toward involving fantastic characters in contemporary social problems, a move which has gained widespread publicity for Marvel and its competitor, DC.
During her romantic involvement with Matt Murdock in San Francisco, she operates as an independent superhero alongside Murdock’s alter ego, Daredevil. There she tries unsuccessfully to find a new career for herself as a fashion designer. Eventually, her relationship with Murdock stagnates, and after briefly working with Avengers finally breaks up with Murdock, fearing that playing “sidekick” is sublimating her identity.
During a HYDRA attempt to take over S.H.I.E.L.D., she is tortured to such an extent that she regresses back to an old cover identity of schoolteacher Nancy Rushman, but she is recovered by Spider-Man in time to help Nick Fury and Shang-Chi work out what had happened and restore her memory.
with “Nancy” developing an attraction to Spider-Man before her memory is restored during the final fight against Madam Viper, Boomerang and the Silver Samurai. She later returns to Matt Murdock’s life to find he is romantically involved with another woman, Heather Glenn, prompting her to leave New York. Natasha ultimately realizes that Matt still only thinks of her in platonic terms, and elects to restrain herself from any advances.
The Black Widow Abilities
Romanoff was a dangerous secret agent highly skilled in espionage, stealth, disguise, infiltration, and demolitions. Her talents and years of experience have enabled her to reach a high ranking as a special agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Romanoff is well versed in internal destabilization and was soon deemed a threat to global security because of this.
She often resorts to seducing men to obtain her goals while working undercover, such as when she posed as an assistant to evaluate Tony Stark for the Avengers Initiative. Romanoff’s skills were so legendary that Nick Fury created a Lie Detector that he hoped she could not deceive.
Master Martial Artist
Romanoff was one of the best fighters in the world, having been trained from a young age in the Red Room and S.H.I.E.L.D. in her later life as a top operative. During her time in the Red Room, she was seen using her martial arts to defeat a grown man by swinging his head into the corner of a desk, proving how formidable she was even when she was young.
She was extremely skilled in the field of martial arts, having mastered arts such as sambo, Lucha-libre style wrestling, parkour, krav maga, combat shooting, hapkido, multiple styles of kung fu, taekwondo, and kali with her batons.
Romanoff has efficiently taken down many enemies, such as multiple Hammer Industries security guards, Georges Batroc’s armed pirates, several members of STRIKE, Ultron Sentries, and even Chitauri aliens. She was skilled enough to be able to defeat a mind-controlled Hawkeye, maintain the upper hand against Ant-Man, and even hold her own against the much stronger Winter Soldier.
Romanoff shows great skill in the use of a spear in close combat, she was seen wielding a Chitauri staff to battle the Chitauri. She was also skillful enough to use Proxima Midnight’s spear to almost kill Corvus Glaive. Romanoff also combined her batons into a staff to battle Proxima Midnight, using it to defend and attack simultaneously.
Romanoff possessed tremendous skill in using a staff, demonstrating her prowess during the Battle of Wakanda to fight against Proxima Midnight.
Romanoff was highly skilled in incorporating gymnastics and acrobatics into her fighting style as she battles opponents. During her fight within Hammer Industries Headquarters, Romanoff used these skills to defeat the guards. During the Chitauri Invasion, she got to ride a Chitauri Chariot by using her acrobatics to commandeer it.
Romanoff was notorious in the art of assassination, considered to be one of the most dangerous assassins in the world. She was known to have killed many people during her time serving the KGB and S.H.I.E.L.D. During her time in the Red Room, Romanoff was trained to kill without remorse and was seen demonstrating her sharpshooting skills on a live captive, showing no emotion as she killed him. Endgame 10 Romanoff in the Avengers’ shooting range
Romanoff was a very accurate marksman skilled in sharpshooting. During the Battle of Washington, D.C., Romanoff would have shot the Winter Soldier through his eye if he had not been wearing his protective goggles. She had also been trained from a young age in the art of sharpshooting, as she was seen practicing on targets, making several headshots in quick succession.
“She’s fluent in French, Italian, Russian, Latin.”
Romanoff was fluent in Latin, Russian, English, French, German, Chinese, Italian, and various other languages.
Romanoff’s intellect seemingly put her on par with Steve Rogers and Clint Barton. She possessed the ability to quickly process multiple information streams and rapidly respond to changing tactical situations.
Romanoff also possessed a vast knowledge of human anatomy, displayed by her often using joint locks and hitting enemies in the weakest parts of their bodies; for example the crotch, stomach, armpits, and the head.
Her prodigious skill from her years of training also allows her to predict her opponents’ plans of attack as well, such as when she was able to save herself, Captain America, and Falcon from being shot by the Winter Soldier by predicting the order in which he would shoot at them through the roof of their car.
Victoria Hand has even stated that Romanoff does not usually require extraction teams on S.H.I.E.L.D. missions and is resourceful enough to make her own escape.
Romanoff was able to trick Loki into telling her about his plan to use Hulk against the Helicarrier to bust him out of his cell. She was able to do a “reverse interrogation”; while she seemed to be in danger, in truth, she was getting all the information she wanted to know.
Romanoff could hack into most computer systems without tripping any firewalls or security. She used this talent to hack into Hammer Industries mainframe and help James Rhodes regain control of the War Machine Armor and enabled him to help Stark fight the rest of the attacking Hammer drones, and again to access the location of Camp Lehigh from the USB Steve Rogers received from Nick Fury.
Romanoff was a skilled pilot, capable of flying a Quinjet with ease.

Her boots have kinetic rebounding soles that add bounce to jumps. The suit incorporates her usual red hourglass and Widow’s Bites with long-range upgrades.

The Black Widow Behind the Scenes
Scarlett Johansson was pregnant during the filming of Avengers: Age of Ultron, so many of her scenes were scheduled early in filming before she began to show. To help hide her pregnancy later in filming, three stunt doubles were hired.
This caused quite a bit of confusion among the other actors since, according to them, all of the stuntwomen looked very similar to Johansson. Chris Evans stated that it got to the point where he would say hello and start a conversation with one of them, only to realize that the person he was talking to was not Johansson.
Ultimately, some scenes used CGI to hide Johansson’s pregnancy. The role of Black Widow was originally offered to Emily Blunt, but she turned it down. Before given the role of Black Widow in Iron Man 2, Johansson wanted the role so badly that she dyed her hair red.
Scarlett Johansson was uncredited for her appearance in Captain Marvel. Gemma Arterton, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Natalie Portman, Eliza Dushku, and Angelina Jolie were also considered for the role. Natalie Portman would later play Jane Foster in Thor, Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Endgame.
Heidi Moneymaker, Bridgett Riley, Amy Johnston, Mandy Kowalski, Casey Michaels, Helen Steinway Bailey, Crystal Hooks, Tara Macken, Rebecca Bujko and Martin Ivanov were stunt doubles for Scarlett Johansson in the role of Black Widow.
Dina Cataldi, Rachel Steele, Faye Sewell, and Amanda Fordham were stand-ins for Scarlett Johansson in the role of Black Widow. Megan Harwick was a photo double for Scarlett Johansson in the role of Black Widow. Due to the heat and uncomfortable nature of her catsuit, Scarlett Johansson didn’t wear any underwear while filming scenes for The Avengers.
