How Black Widow Program Started?
Recently Joss Whedon slammed film makers for not focusing on female super heroes. He added that due to $exism, enthusiasm toward female talent and inferiority complex female superheroes are less focused on by production companies. That is why we do not have movies like Supergirl and Batgirl. Looks like Marvel Studios has taken this criticism as an advice and focused on a new angle in its ongoing TV series ‘Agent Carter’. Agent Carter team has recently released a teaser of its latest episode titled ‘The Iron Ceiling’ which give us a glimpse at the early days of the Black Widow program. It was the Black Widow program that transformed Natasha Romanoff in to the killing machine Black Widow. Of course Scarlett Johansson has made the character hugely popular among fans from her performance in films like Captain America, Ironman and The Avengers.
MCU’s TV series Agent Carter chronicles the life of Peggy Carter who was founding member of SHIELD and love interest of Captain America. The Superhero TV series is getting huge applause from critics and audience alike. The latest episode titled ‘The Iron Ceiling’ will be premiered on TV on 6th February 2015. The official plot summary states that Peggy is finally called up by the Howling Commandos squad and is being sent on a secret mission. However her cover is at risk as she is accompanied by Agent Jack Thompson. As the first season of Agent Carter consist only 8 episodes so the events of ‘The Iron Ceiling’ will surely play a major role in deciding the climax of the season.
Marvel Cinematic Universe is often criticized to either leave origin stories of superheroes and various characters or often ruin it with weak adaption. Marvel has already disclosed that its intention is to weave a huge web that includes almost all of its superheroes and characters. That is why the studio has not only linked up various of its TV series but also has tied up its popular film series like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers. The recently announced Marvel’s five TV series deal with Netflix has also created a lot of buzz. After Agent of Shield and Agent Carter, MCU is focusing on ‘AKA Jessica Jones’, ‘Daredevil’, ‘Luke Cage’, ‘Iron Fist’ and ‘The Defenders’. As Marvel is known for linking up and crossing over characters from one series to other so it will not come as a surprise if we any of the characters of these series being introduced in Agent of Shield or Agent Carter.
