I'm not sure I want Jennifer Gardner. I have nothing against her, but also no reason to want her. She didn't particularly impress me (these sentences describe the movie as a whole, come to think of it).
1. Thank you for giving me this woman. After I've scrubbed all the Affleck off her, she'll make a fine addition to my house hold.

2. Daredevil was terrible, Elektra was meh, but I loved Alias.
Sure, then watch Alias and hire someone else for Elektra. Should they hire an actress with an accent (maybe a Greek actress)? I've never really thought about it much, but she is apparently Greek.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Punisher and Elektra are sleeping together in Thunderbolts.

Deadpool is all moody about this because he loves her more than frank and (he thinks) that no one has noticed that his love for Elektra is bigger, truer and more worthy than Franks.

Do you ever wonder about Black Widow in the Marvel movies?

Why is she speking with an Ameican accent?

Is that just becuase it's how she was taught, and it's no big deal, or is she continuing to program her teammate's subconciouses that she is as trustworthily American as the rest of the group?

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

I take it as part of her espionage training to fit in. I pretend her Russian accent is, of course, flawless as well (I have honestly no idea its quality). But she's a spy, so it makes more sense.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

In Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Black Widow (voiced by Vanessa Marshall) used an American accent as a SHIELD agent and a Russian accent when she (apparently) defected to HYDRA. I think the version of Black Widow on Iron Man: Armored Adventures has an American accent, but I don't recall for sure.

And Ditto for Elektra's accent too.

Or heck, how about Ms. Marvel? Kamala Khan is a brand-new character, so I'm sure Marvel retains the rights to her.
According to recent rumors, "Ms. Marvel" is going to be the title of their Captain Marvel movie, either because they don't want two "Captain" franchises or because they know DC is working on a "Shazam" movie. So if they want to do a Kamala Khan show/movie as well, they might have to come up with a different title.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Sales would have to be through the roof for them to use Kamala... Unless they sorted out the character in Hollywood first, who then instructed Marvel that this was the character they had to introduce foundating the character, so that the the Suits in Burbank could put "From the Hit Marvel Comic" in the blurb on their movie poster.

What do we know of her background in the films? Is she a former Russian spy who now works for the Americans? Is she an American of Russian descent? Does she sound like Natasha Fatale when she talks to herself?

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

We know from Avengers that Black Widow is a known element within Russian circles. Her "captor" makes reference to, paraphrase, "...that the Black Widow is nothing more than just a pretty face". Indicating she has some reputation but to what extent is unknown. I'd wager that reputations was earned while she worked for a Russian Black Ops outfit.

Natasha while "interviewing" Loki says, "I'm Russian, or I used to be regimes come and go..."

While talking to Hawkeye and he's talking about being "unmade" that he feels like his brain was scooped out and replaced and turns to Natasha and says, "You know what that feels like?" to which she responds, "You know I do."
Fairly certain she's referring to the Russian brainwashing/training.

In Captain America 2, she mentions being a former KGB agent, which is strange, because if I remember her age correctly, she would have been 7 years old when the KGB stopped existing. Although maybe the KGB of the MCU stuck around a bit longer...

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Or she spent some time in stasis, or she's a time traveller.

Remember in Batman Comics when the NKVDemon turned into the KGBeast?

Or it's possible that she was a cut throat retail rep for KGB Lemon Vodka?

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

...or she was a brainwashed child assassin? Think 'Hanna' meets the 'Manchurian Candidate' with a dash of 'Leon' and some River Tam.

On the other hand, I've seen interviews with SMJ in which he says he thinks of his Nick Fury as the same one that fought in WWII and there's some mechanism--as yet unexplained--keeping him young. Assuming he's right, there may indeed be something else out there. (Note I have not yet seen TWS yet so I don't know yet how he's been kept alive all these years...though I can probably guess.)

Actually wasn't it Black Widow who told Cap that (besides Banner) a lot of people tried to replicate the super soldier serum? It'd make sense that the Soviets would be just as eager to get their hands on it as any super-power.

As for her accent...um, she's a master spy and expert infiltrator. She can have whatever accent she wants.

Actually, I seem to remember her birth date being explicitly shown as 1984. I need to see the movie again to be sure in which context.

yeah, I think that's in her file in Iron Man 2.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Well Winter Soldier confirmed the comics full name and birthdate for her (Natalia Alianovna Romanoff, November 22, 1984, a few days older than me).

From the movies we know she was a KGB agent of some form, with a specialised skillset which apparently consisteing of the cold blooded massacre of anyone the agency pointed her at, which at some point included a hospital, families, children etc

Barton was sent by SHIELD to kill her and for some reason, gave her a second chance, she was taken to SHIELD's American HQ and extensively retrained to be one of them, but essentially still the master assassin sent to eliminate anyone they thought threatened world peace.

So I'd say all we need to know is, she kills people for a living, and doesn't (to her own admission in TWS) really care who.
