The Avengers movie comes out May 4th! In this newest installment of Marvel superheroes, all the foreshadowing and speculation we have experienced when watching those “secret” scenes at the end of movies like Iron Man, comes to fruition. There has been additional buzz around the film because of its director. Buffy creator Joss Whedon. He has his own cult following. And rightly so. He is a talented and creative storyteller, offering the right balance of intelligence and wit. And often times while asking the questions that others do not dare to ask.
I, along with others, hope for this Whedon in Avengers. A clip from the film that was released this week implies that we will get that Whedon-style storytelling that will add another whole layer to the Marvel narrative.
In this clip the assassin Black Widow/Natasha Romanova (Scarlett Johansson) is getting called into action by S.H.I.E.L.D.’s agent Coulson. Natasha is being interrogated . . or is she?
