Instead of an action packed origin story about Natasha Romanoff, we get a romantic comedy that has Natasha looking for love in the big city. Because Marvel gets girls, obvi.

ScarJo stars as Black Widow as she heads to NYC to take a job at a fashion magazine, earning the cover with her super fashion sense and soon finding love in a meet-cute on the street.

The tagline really says it all though, “For Black Widow, falling in love can be hard, but it can be Incredible.”

Turns out the man of her dreams is large, green and knows she loves ice cream.
