Connections With Other Fandoms

Scarlett Johansson portrayed Natasha Romanoff in the MCU. Morgan Freeman portrayed Lucius Fox in the Nolanverse Batman trilogy.

Fandom

The fandom is quite small for the film, with only a few works posted to FFN and AO3. The fandom is mainly located on Tumblr.

Due to Johansson's star role as a female lead with superhuman powers, many MCU and Black Widow fans went to see the film to support the actress, and to show Marvel Studios that a Black Widow Movie is possible and would gain as much money as it's other films like Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. This led to the film having gained $458.9 million at box office (the movie's budget was only $40 million)[1].

Fans of Natasha Romanoff often use clips of Johansson's Lucy character in her vids and fake trailers - usually to represent Natasha's time as a Russian spy/assassin before joining S.H.I.E.L.D..
