Steve/Natasha is a het pairing of Steve Rogers (Captain America) and Natasha Romanova (Black Widow) of the Marvel Universe.



Steve and Natasha first appeared on screen together in The Avengers (2012). They worked together again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in which both characters go on the run from S.H.I.E.L.D. to clear Steve's name and find out who killed Nick Fury. They also appeared together in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. Post Civil War, both characters are on the run again; with Steve Rogers believed to be in Wakanda and Natasha's current location unknown. Both characters will return for Avengers: Infinity War.


Although this pairing gets more canon attention in the different comic runs, the movieverse pairing is more popular.[1] Based on works on Ao3, this is the second most popular het pairing for Steve and the fourth most popular pairing overall.[2] Similarly, this is the third most popular pairing overall for Natasha.[3] Many pieces of fandom use the movieverse friendship between both of these characters as a basis for the pairing. In addition, Natasha's relationship in the comics to Bucky Barnes, also gives creators common ground upon which to build their relationship. It should be noted that as one of only two women on the Avengers, Natasha is shipped with many of the members of the Avengers to create het pairings and give her a romantic storyline.
