Natasha Romanoff has never been just a spy. She has been the spy, the most talented agent of the soviet KGB, trained from childhood. However, even the best spies make mistakes, and one wrong move is enough to draw the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Barton must find the woman who earned the name ‘Black Widow’ for herself, but his task is not as easy as he thought it would be. He doesn’t only have to take down the Black Widow – he has to reckon with the Winter Soldier as well.

Someone finally giffed it. But LOOK AT THIS FIGHT. Honestly the Winter Soldier was far more on his back heel fighting Natasha than he was Steve this scene. First off, if he hadn’t managed to throw his hand up quickly, she would have garrotted him. She’s literally half his size (he throws her like a rag doll when he finally is able to get a hold of her) and she has him more at a disadvantage than Steve does, who is bigger than him. Next she shorts out his cyber arm (and I assume he has to electrocute himself to pull the thing off). By that second to the last gif his facial expression isn’t even stone cold killer any more, it’s more “REALLY??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?” It’s the most human his eyes look up until Steve starts setting off his programing.
We talk about Steve and Bucky going toe to toe, but the one who really has the Winter Soldier’s number for most of their fight is Natasha.
#MAN HE WAS /PISSED/ WHEN SHE SHOT HIS GOGGLES#BY ALL RIGHTS HE SHOULD HAVE GONE AFTER STEVE AND NO DOUBT STEVE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HIS MAIN PRIORITY ON THIS MISSION#BUT HE GOT HECKA PISSED WHEN SHE ACTUALLY MANAGED TO FUCKING LAND A SHOT BASICALLY#YO THIS SCENE MAN#THIS ENTIRE SEQUENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO

less of natasha being an emotionally cold, super scary spy and more about her being a secret troll and epic dork please
that “shall we play a game?” reference, and awkwardly trying to explain her own joke
she uses emoticons to text steve about OFFICIAL SRS BUSINES ;DDD
i bet steve’s “disguise” came out of her own closet, because while natasha wears super sleek leather stuff to maintain her ””image””, left to her own devices she totally rocks the middle school emo look. complete with plastic lens-less hipster glasses because SHE LIKES THE WAY SHE LOOKS WITH GLASSES OKAY IT’S NOT A CRIME
she’s probably told the smithsonian/fossil joke so many times. every time she picks steve up. she thinks she’s hiLARIOUS, and steve’s like, omg you’re such a white suburban dad get away from me
(clint’s like, i’m hungry
hi hungry, i’m natasha, natasha says, and throws a pretzel into his mouth)
