It's the Friday video post! Black Widow title sequence

I'm not a huge Marvel fan, but it's hard to avoid all the hype. Avengers: Age of Ultron was OK I guess, failing to excite or surprise to any huge degree, but could have been a lot worse.

It's interesting that Black Widow, the only female member of the Avengers team, whilst being a strong character doesn't have the same standing as males (and even gets completely omitted from a toy set, presumably because she's a 'girl'). Everyday sexism prevails in the mainstream media once again!

Still, there are plenty of Black Widow fans out there, and one has created this opening title squence for a fictional movie about her. Captain America, Iron Man and Thor have their own standalone movies – why not Black Widow? Again, is it because she's a 'girl' and not deemed worthy enough?

Who knows, but I think her story might be more interesting than the more testosterone-laden ones of her Avengers counterparts.

My only criticism of this sequence is the use of font for the hero's title. Seems a bit amateurish unfortunately, but apart from that I think it's a great peice of work.
