One of the coolest moments in Avengers: Age Of Ultron features Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow dropping out of a Quinjet on a motorcycle before cruising off to kick some ass.
For its toy line, however, Marvel decided that moment would be a little cooler if a dude did it. So the Hasbro and Lego Quinjet toys put Captain America on the motorcycle instead of Widow.
Meanwhile the Mattel version features Iron Man for some reason.
In other words, not only is Black Widow ridiculously underrepresented in Avengers merchandise—she’s also actively erased from her own scenes. Well done Marvel.
