The pairing particularly became popular after The Avengers film, which indicated that Clint was the reason Natasha ends up joining S.H.I.E.L.D. and referenced their past history. The pairing was confirmed to be only friendship/partners in Avengers: Age of Ultron and no actual romance between them happened since Clint is married. Due to this and other canon established, the movie got a lot of backlash. Despite everything, the pairing remains popular, and Clint & Natasha started to being paired up together in a threesome pairing with Laura Barton.
