‘Black Widow’ James Bond ‘Moonraker’ Connection
Superheroes: They need breaks too! That’s why it was nice to see Natasha Romanoff, taking a night off in Black Widow to catch a movie. What do superheroes watch, you ask?
Action movies. So much for a distraction. Natasha, I guess, loves herself some James Bond. Early on in the film, we see Black Widow herself taking a night off, drinking beer, and reciting lines from 1979’s Moonraker. The film, which stars Roger Moore’s iteration of Bond is a bit of a love-it-or-hate-it entry in the great canon of espionage flick. Those who love it will tell you that it’s the movie where Bond goes to the moon, which is sweet. And those who hate it will ask: Why the hell they did they send Bond to the moon? Still, after finding out that Thor plays video games in his free time, I respect the movie night call, Natasha.

Moonraker is a campy blast. Her decision is a little meta, though. Moonraker opens with a hell of a skydiving scene, which (without giving too much away) mirrors the ending of Black Widow. Plus, Moonraker sees its villains hiding out in an eerily similar fashion to how Black Widow’s big bad keeps things secret, which is something else I won’t spoil here. That’s just about where the similarities end, aside from the espionage action. Thankfully, too. This is the same movie where James Bond makes love in zero gravity, catapults the villain into space, and uses space lasers to get the job done. As far as I know, all of Black Widow’s characters are under 7’2, too.
At least Moonraker is better than the Yo Gabba Gabba! cameo in WandaVision. I think.
