We could easily blame it on Hawkeye’s vision of her, but is he to blame? Although Captain America agreed, is he to blame?
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, view this clip in which the interviewer starts the interview with the following question, “I have a very serious question to start with about shifting(?) (difficult to make out). Because I know a lot of fans were actually pretty invested in the idea of Natasha with actually either/or, or both of you guys, and now obviously she’s with Bruce. What do you guys make of that?”
A tired and bored-looking Hawkeye replied, “She’s a slut.”
Captain America released a whole-hearty laugh and agreed.
In reality, neither of these superheroes are to blame for the image of Black Widow and the idea she is a slut. They didn’t write the story or the script. They also didn’t write the comics in which Black Widow appeared.
