Minute Thirteen: From a Backhand to Simply Another Pretty Face

Joining us today is Phillip Mottaz, author of the Psychic Barber Mystery series.

In the thirteenth minute of The Avengers

It’s time to talk about Natasha! We dig in on her role in the MCU and how we feel she’s been used up to this point, as well as beyond. We touch on the director and the fact that we come into this scene with her getting backhanded. It’s a bit rough. But as a spy scene, we also realize it’s doing what it’s supposed to. We talk about Georgi Luchkov and his history in the comics. It’s not much, but it’s there. And how about this building? Why are they using it? What’s with the random stash of goods? It’s a great scene and character intro. Tune in!
