Of all the members of the Avengers, Black Widow is arguably the most interesting. She's beautiful, deadly, and incredibly enigmatic when it comes to her past. She's also loyal to her friends and allies, and when the time came, she didn't hesitate to sacrifice her own life to retrieve the Soul Stone. She's also one of the fans' favorite characters, but how much does the average MCU fan even know about her?

Arguably, not very much, but that's not a problem, thanks to the more eagle-eyed fans out there. Folks have been posting their findings about Natasha Romanova on the MovieDetails subreddit for years, and their most interesting details are listed below. 

Take a look at the small details about Black Widow the MCU fans have noticed over the years. When you find something you didn't already know, or that you find truly compelling go ahead and give it an upvote to see which one rises to the top!

    In Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) Black Widow is seen wearing an arrow necklace, a nod toward her close partnership to Hawkeye.

    Black Widow Tried To Deal With The Snap In Her Own Way

    Redditor u/kkap paid close attention to what's going on in this scene, as it pertains to Black Widow's coping:

    In Avengers: Endgame (2019), a pair of pointe shoes (used in ballet) sit upon a seat near Black Widow, a reference to her origin story and presumably her attempt at coping with the losses endured in Infinity War.

    Black Widow's Russian Origin Was Hinted At In 'Iron Man 2'

    Black Widow has numerous skills, but her linguistic abilities are often overlooked... but not by Redditor u/RedditorforMordor:

    In Iron Man 2, Justin Hammer's tech guy couldn't fix Vanko's hacks because it is in a different language, Justin suggests to try using Russian. Later Black Widow was able to un-hack Rhodey's War Machine because she can understand Russian, presumably can code in Russian too.
