I am still impressed.
I’ll make it no secret that I’m really looking forward to Iron Man 2. Every trailer that has come out looks better than the previous one and this TV ad is no different. But, one thing that you may notice from this TV spot is that Black Widow finally speaks, and she isn’t Russian. Or at least she doesn’t have the accent.
Now I know that for some people, Black Widow has to be Russian, but I don’t necessarily side with those people. I do like comic book characters to be as close to how they are in their respective comic books, but I am ok with change and if Black Widow is not Russian it’s not going to ruin my day. It would be nice to find out that she is Russian speaking with an American accent, but it’s not a deal breaker for me.
If Black Widow was completely American I wouldn’t be hugely surprised since Marvel has been trending towards Americanizing their characters. In any case, what are your thoughts? Are you looking forward to Iron Man 2? Do you care if Black Widow isn’t Russian?
