Change her look and the loyal fans will riot and boycott the movies, but you'll get more of the general public.

Keep her look and you'll get more loyal fans, but the general public will see it as campy and outdated.

Of course, knowing comic fans and the internet like I do, the loyal fans are going to be pissed off about something no matter what they do. I say, update her look to something more modern and badass and let the fans bitch. They're going to anyway.

If the movie shows a credible transition from old look to new look, the fanbois will be largely mollified.

I think they're just going to turn her into the "Sneaky hot girl" like MARVEL did to about every woman superhero in the movies.

... and there is an obvious moment to do it and with a little humour...
Old look on Amazon planet.
Odd stares and giggles once on Earth demanding a more earthy look.

Consider

That could work. Of course, that would require movie execs to greenlight something with credibility, which is rarer than a virgin stripper.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

They're not rare!

Are you telling us that you've never stripped a virgin?

You should get out more.

Only once, but if I go into more detail, we'd have to move this convo to the SBT.

Perhaps for the pedantically inclined, I should have specified "an exotic nude dancer who also happens to have an intact hymen."

Better?

Well, Black Widow doesn't have any super powers, and neither does Pepper Pots, Jane Foster or Darcy. Lady Sif is an Asgardian and a badass fighter to boot, but even she is a secondary character in the Thor specific movies. Gamora in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy looks to be true to character's comic book badass form (she wields a sword called The Godslayer, because that's what it does).


Who outside of Black Widow is a 'sneaky hot girl'?


But seriously, I want to see Ms. Marvel pop up eventually. Disney/Marvel, make it happen! Angry
