While it is no shock that Black Widow has the ability to end the lives of her victims (she is a notable and skilled assassin, after all), her choice and the choice of the MCU’s architects to exclusively use her weapon’s stun-only setting is significant.

With any luck, Natasha Romanoff will continue to impress and showcase more impressive feats of superheroism in the very near future.
One name that really stands out in that impressive ensemble is Jurassic World: Dominion star Jeff Goldblum and, as you might expect, the actress is excited to work with him on the project. «I love Jeff Goldblum, so me hearing he was part of the movie, I was just blown away. I was like, ‘No way
