Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff) played by Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson talks about being accepted as The Black Widow
S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), is one of the world’s greatest spies and quite possibly the world’s most skilled assassin. Armed with an extensive arsenal of specialized weapons like widow stings and cluster bombs, as well as a vast repertoire of martial arts skills, Romanoff’s unique talents make her one of Director Fury’s top agents and an integral part in assembling The Avengers.
Black Widow is all business. She’s sort of in a grey area. In a sense, she’s been fighting the good fight despite her dark background. But she’s committed because she has to be and her moral ground is more dutiful. She’s militaristic in that way; that’s how she knows right from wrong.

Nick Fury (Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.) played by Samuel L. Jackson
As the legendary director of the international peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is humanity’s first line of defense against the world’s biggest threats. When S.H.I.E.L.D. becomes aware of an evil that threatens global safety, Fury assembles the planet’s most powerful beings and forms The Avengers.
Nick Fury monitors a lot of things and when he sees a need, he generally goes against the grain; he rubs a lot of people the wrong way by taking actions in situations that they don’t necessarily want him to take action in but he does anyway.
