Black Widow

Every time Saturday Night Live gets a guest host who plays regularly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they just can’t resist getting in a dig or two at the superhero blockbuster factory via a well-produced and hilarious sketch.

In late 2012, they had on Jeremy Renner and the collaboration resulted in an Avengers spoof centered around the relative lameness of Hawkeye. Last September, Chris Pratt was more than happy to participate in one of the show’s Digital Shorts taking comedic aim at his recent star-making turn in the summer smash Guardians of the Galaxy. Most recently, Chris Hemsworth suited up as Thor for another Avengers sketch that portrayed the mighty God of Thunder as a glory-hogging party animal.

This weekend, Scarlett Johansson guest hosted Saturday Night Live to help promote the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so naturally the show had to feature her in a Marvel-spoofing skit as her MCU character and Avenger extraordinaire Black Widow. True to SNL form, the sketch chose to stick it to Marvel Studios by showing how they would approach making a solo movie starring Johansson as the sultry superspy in the mock trailer for Black Widow: Age of Me.

You can watch it here below.

The premise of Age of Me is genius because it gets right to the heart of Hollywood’s staggering inability to produce a female-driven action epic despite the international success of the Hunger Games series and Johansson’s prominent role in the MCU (she’s has vital supporting roles in four of their biggest box office hits to date, and looks to be gearing up for more). If women are the target audience, then obviously what they really want to see instead of a strong, assertive, and three-dimensional female hero is another lady looking for love in all the wrong places.

So if you want to see Black Widow complain about her relationship problems over Chinese food with Nick Fury and Captain America, field dating advice from her gay best friend Thor, and fall madly in love with Ultron while working for a fashion magazine, then you’ve come to the right place.
