Most super heroes get their origin story retold when they get a solo film, but Black Widow’s a bit trickier. Unlike most of the other Avengers, she’ll have already appeared in at least three films before getting a lead role. Her past has been hinted at, but she’s also already been established as a present-day hero. She doesn’t need to have her origin told, and if that story is told, it can unfold alongside a present-day storyline. "Deadly Origin" balances a dual narrative, one that goes all the way back to Natasha’s childhood as an assassin in training.
