If I have one favorite element to this tapestry, it’s the Black Widow. I decided (late in the game) that she did need a theme, a calling card… I told Alan he needed to evoke her background and identity in her first cue. Which he did. A lonely, plucked, Soviet scent to define our girl. I heard it. Then I heard it again, battling against Loki’s theme, as they battled for verbal supremacy on the Helicarrier. And again, rich with doleful strings as she revealed to her best friend that Loki had touched her more than she’d shown…and then, as she battles onto an alien chariot, the same minor refrain blossoms into heroic glory, as galvanizing as the team theme itself.
“Elsewhere, it would be remiss to point out that while the film makes very little effort to support it’s technobabble, the crux of the action is Thor and Jane working together to save the world WITH SCIENCE! Now that is how you use an astrophysicist in your superhero movie. I don’t care if it actually makes sense, I want Jane to go from world to world with Thor and save people with science. Or they could just have a television show for kids on PBS where Thor is her big smiley lab assistant who never wears protective gear.”—Emily Asher-Perrin’s review of Thor: The Dark World (via fourofthem)
