Scarlett Johansson
Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow



After the femme fatale known as the Black Widow was born, she was given to the KGB who grooms her to become its ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her as the action moves to present-day New York, where she is a freelance operative.

Additional Notes

  • Based on the Marvel Comics property.
  • According to Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, Black Widow's storyline in The Winter Soldier revolves around "her coming to terms with her history, that she's been a spy, and spies aren't necessarily trustworthy".
