The Marvel Cinematic Universe is full of iconic characters that have their unique traits and that is what sets them apart and defines them for fans. While Robert Downey Jr’s arrogance is his USP, very few are left to die of Chris Evans’s radiant allure. But the best trait and boldest character has to be Black Widow AKA Natasha Romanoff AKA Scarlett Johansson and her standard Bada’s that she brings to the table.
We were introduced to Black Widow over a decade ago with Iron Man 2 and his overlord boss vibes and the power to even make Tony Stark care about his words, he beat us in just a few scenes he had. Later, he made his way into many MCU movies and won hearts with his honest and ruthless lines every time.
So, as Scarlett Johansson continues to fight her battle with Disney, let’s visit her first three movies, namely Iron Man 2, The Avengers, and Captain America: Winter Soldier. Let’s list some of his boldest and most iconic lines from the movies in part 1.
“I would do what I wanted, with whoever I wanted to do it with.” -[Iron Man 2]
It was Tony Stark’s birthday and a depressed Iron Man asks Black Widow aka Natalie Rushman what he would do if this was his last birthday. Natasha responds with this sultry line and that leads to the massive birthday party that Iron Man throws and parties in the suit. He even urinates on it, revealing that he can do it for the first time.
‘You’re laughing.’ – [Iron Man 2]
God, this has an icon written all over it. The longest joke in Iron Man 2 was how many languages Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow can speak. According to Tony Stark, she could not speak Latin as it is a dead language. But hey, she’s the Black Widow and there’s nothing she can’t do. She utters the phrase and proves him wrong like a boss. It translates to “you can drive yourself home or I can have you picked up.”

Tony Stark and Pepper’s relationship is something every Marvel fan wants to see culminate even after all these years. When at the climax the two were busy having a cute fight, Scarlett Johansson couldn’t hold back and made the most murderous decision of the two. Man, that was a burn!
‘Love is for children; I owe him a debt. -[The Avengers]
All of us low-key wanted Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye to become one at many points in the MCU. It cannot be argued that there is no love between the two, but Scarlett Johansson made us shed a tear or two when she talked about owing him a debt.
‘Yes, the world is a vulnerable place, and yes, we help make it that way. But we are also the best qualified to defend it. So if you want to arrest me, drag me down. You will know where to find me. – [Captain America: Winter Soldier]
The most iconic by the end. Natasha Romanoff is in the courtroom and is giving the final argument. She is unapologetic and does not regret any movement from her. She is exposed but not guilty, and when she expresses that in those lines we all had goose bumps. And Scarlett Johansson with her head held high as she walked off the court is what we all live for.
