Marvel Studios knew they had something on their hands the minute the internet went wild over photos of Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow before "Iron Man 2" hit theaters.  Over the past few years Widow has been a mainstay with a prominent role as a member of "The Avengers" and, now, co-starring alongside the Super Soldier in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
