Raven and Black Widow


Scarlett Johansson is seemingly done with the role of Black Widow, but who knows what will happen down the line?  Between time travel and the multiverse, there seems to be opportunity to bring her back if desired by Marvel Studios.  While I prefer death in the movies to have some permanence, and I enjoy Yelena as her replacement, I wouldn't mind seeing her back at least one more time - if only to have an adventure and possibly romance with Daredevil.  I loved the comics of my youth when they she shared his title.

Inspired match-up cover. This really catches the eye - and holds the attention.

Except for the fact of her lawsuit against Disney.
When the virus struck, she sued since her movie was shown on tv rentals and not the box office which was how her contract was made for part of her salary. The mouse was a full RAT when given a chance to prove itself in how it treated its stars.
It'll be interesting to see how she is employed there in the future.

I saw it in my hometown multiplex. And it was far better than I anticipated! Who knows, though? This could lead to a Fox-produced "mockumentary" whereby DW (Discovery Warner) sues She Who Played Mera!

For thoughts on this matter, we go to our not-so-legal analyst, Robert Greenwade. Bob?

Well, my request from May 31 might've only been half-granted. But, then again, there are times when Natasha as the Black Widow can be way scarier than Boris Karloff and Vincent Price put together!

We could still get a Natasha Romanoff/Matt Murdock hookup, Ross, on shows such as What If...? or Loki. Lake Bell did a fine job voicing Natasha in the first season of the former show, so we'll still see bits of the character there, at least.

Even so, I'm looking forward to seeing more of Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova, in Thunderbolts and beyond.

@Tobor: ScarJo and Disney settled things to their mutual satisfaction. According to Scarlett herself, things are patched up. She's still done with Natasha, but for creative reasons; she might be lured back for a multiverse appearance (such as Loki or Secret Wars) or flashback.

It seems like you haven't use any female tv property characters in awhile like Rima, Firestar, Light Wave,

Jayna, Wendy, Web Woman, Isis, Jana, Goldie Gold, Electro Woman & Dyna-Girl,

Micro Woman (Super Stretch) & Moray (Manta) in ages.

Maybe some of them could team up on here together before the year is out such as tutors for The PowerPuff Girls?

Or even Fantomah (imagine if the Spectre and Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, had a love-child) vs. Maxx!

How about a live action Isis meets Electro Woman & Dyna Girl cover sometime or even a 2 parter?

Firestar is a natural to team up with a new Spider friend in Web Woman.

Rima could call animals in the Super Friends so it was puzzling that she was never teamed with Jayna of all people.

Moray & Micro Woman both had heroic boyfriend/partners so that would make for a great 2 parter as well (like your GA, BC, Hawkeye, Mock covers).

Wendy could be trained for the next part of her career by Goldie Gold (who could also be teamed with booster from JLU or B. & Bold toons).

Terra like villainess Light Wave could be a fun new recruit for The Super Friends.

Jana The Jungle Girl could team up with Rima The Jungle Girl or even Jayna (since they have one letter difference in their names).

Micro Woman & Rima might be one of your few "double minority female" cartoon team up options.
