While we were poking around UGO, we came upon this surprisingly lengthy gallery of Hot Black Widow Cosplay. Well maybe not too surprising — all you need is a black catsuit, some wrist thingies, a red wig, and a good figure and you too can fight for SHIELD.
We found this gallery surprisingly addictive for the number of conventions we could recognize via carpet patterns and other landmarks. Oi. Maybe we have been to TOO MANY conventions.
BTW, the Black Widow costume is notable for being simple yet very distinctive. It was designed by John Romita, who, we would guess, has to be a cosplay favorite for his entire portfolio of strong costume designs.
And since we’re rounding up all things Black Widow here, Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige says a Black Widow move is still under consideration:
“There’s no definitive plans, but we have started talking and talking with Scarlett about what a Widow movie could be,” he said. “Internally we’ve also started thinking what a ‘Hawkeye’ movie could be, how we could continue to explore the organization [which Samuel Jackson‘s Nick Fury leads] S.H.I.E.L.D, which has a pretty big part in ‘Thor,’ smaller parts in the two ‘Iron Man’ films and has a giant part in ‘The Avengers.’ [So it’s like], what would a stand-alone “S.H.I.E.L.D.” be like? It all goes back to the comics. Sometimes the answer is—when looking at a certain run of issues— ‘no way’ and sometimes the answer is ‘maybe, let’s continue to explore it’ and certainly with Hawkeye and Black Widow those are two that we’re exploring.”
