Marvel’s man movies has played a huge role in introducing heroes big and small to a whole new audience that has never picked up a comic before. But with so many films released, there’s fans out there who might want to take the first step into reading the comics the movies have come from. Here are just a few…
Oh my god. We’ve known for a while that Black Widow would be getting her own series in Marvel’s upcoming “All-New, All-Different” reboot—but we didn’t know who, and now we do, it’s safe to say Natasha is in good hands: Mark Waid and Chris Samnee, the team behind Marvel’s outstanding Daredevil comic.
While there’s been many rumors circulating about just who is fighting who in the next Captain America movie—but newly emerged promotional art has given our first look at just who is standing with Captain America or Iron Man in Marvel’s impending superheroic dustup. There’s even a surprising face or two... spoilers…
Moviegoers are already familiar with Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. the Black Widow, the superspy and member of Earth’s mightiest heroes. Meanwhile in the comics, Natasha is about to get some unexpected company. Enter the Red Widow!
Play Arts Kai is back with another crazy entrant to their Marvel Variants line, and—wait. This figure isn’t that crazy. It’s quite restrained, in fact. And kind of totally badass. And it’s Black Widow! Who made this figure, and what have they done with the real Square-Enix?
Hey, y’all! Meet Nannie Doss. Over a period of nearly 30 years, this cheery serial killer chopped multiple limbs off her own family tree, with body count that’s alleged to include four husbands, her mother, one of her mother-in-laws, her two sisters, two of her children, a grandson, and a nephew.
If you’ve been following the long saga that is Black Widow’s place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’ll know that everyone’s favourite assassin has been getting a short shrift, both on the big screen and on toy shelves. Fans have been angry for a while, but now they’re taking their grievances to the streets.
For his After Effects class final project, Christopher Haley made a title sequence for the not-in-existence Black Widow movie. It has an obvious inspiration, but if you’re making a spy movie, why not pay tribute to Bond?
The history of Marvel Merchandise’s long, confusing and mostly terrible history with Black Widow’s presence on toy shelves is exactly that: long, confusing, and mostly terrible. But never fear, true believers — somehow toy-based representation of Black Widow can get even worse! Wait, what?
Black Widow’s rise to badassery arguably began in 2004, when Richard K. Morgan wrote a miniseries that revamped her backstory and gave her a much stronger inner life. And now that we’re all talking about Black Widow in the wake of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Morgan has some thoughts about how to achieve her full…
There’s a distinct lack of Black Widow toys on shelves for Age of Ultron, but that’s not a new problem. I know it. You know it. Now even Mark Ruffalo, Bruce Banner himself, knows it.

This final Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is basically an extended version of that blisteringly awesome TV spot from last month, but that doesn't mean you won't enjoy the new footage. Unless, you know, you don't like watching Black Widow face down the Hulk, wielding Cap's shield, and basically being the awesomest.
As far as hyper-detailed figures that you can buy, Hot Toys is up there as some of the best for your cash. But they definitely have some competition from these jaw-dropping headsculpts by customiser Xiang Zhang.
We've heard it pretty much every time Marvel's Avengers have been on the big screen. People point to Hawkeye and Black Widow and insist, "They shouldn't be here." Because what superhero team needs two normal humans? But those people are missing the point: Those heroes' normality is their greatest strength.
The last time Hot Toys released a Black Widow figure, we were understandably amazed/petrified at the company's ability to practice the dark arts presumably required to create their exquisite toys. But now they're back with Johansson's soul in tow for a second outing, and she looks great.
