AU StevexNatasha: In the 40’s, Natasha and Steve met before “Captain America”. They fall in love, but they weren’t mean to be. He kept dreaming about her.
I’m coming home, to breath again, to start again. I’m coming home, from all the places I have been with nothing but, a voice within.
;____; Kill me!
There was a lot of cat-calling and whistles as Steve reached under Natasha’s dress.
True to character, she looked absolutely non-plussed. Regal and composed as the man who was now her husband moved to publicly relieve her of her garter in the name of tradition.
She gave him a slight raise of her eyebrows when he looked up at her, loosely gripping her ankle in one hand as the other brushed up her calf.
This sort of display may have been remarkably embarrassing for Steve, but he had yet to find anything that embarrassed Natasha. No, she looked normal as ever with her hands set lightly in her lap, looking nothing but expectant.
Now up to his shoulders in her skirt, ears burning, Steve’s hand brushed the lace of her garter, and his lips twitched into a smile despite his dicomfort at the very open nature of this situation.
He moved to pull it from her, and froze when he bumped against the gun holstered high on her thigh.
His head snapped up to look at her, and Natasha offered him the crook of an eyebrow by way of response.
“Really?” Steve asked under his breath, feeling bewildered and exasperated. “Today?”
His wife smiled in a lazy, contented way.
“You never know,” she responded in a murmur before pressing the heel of her shoe to the inside of his wrist in a soft, insistant nudge.
“Get a move on, Rogers. They’ll think you’ve never laid hands on a girl’s legs before.” Her small smile turned somewhat wicked. “And we both know that isn’t true,”
Steve coughed, pursed his lips, and got the garter business over with before helping Natasha to her feet and pulling her into a kiss.
“You won’t be wearing that tonight, will you?” He teased, hands on her hips.
Her fingers trailing through the hair at the back of his neck, he felt her smile against his mouth.
Avengers Business Cards - Just because
trailer for Marvel’s Agent of Shield.
Posted: May 8th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
We just reported that Robert Downey Jr is in talks with Marvel to return for “The Avengers 2” and “The Avengers 3.” But the actor isn’t even discussing “Iron Man 4,” and we may now know why.
Downey earned somewhere between $50 million and $80 million on “The Avengers,” and has already earned over $35 million for his work on “Iron Man 3,” but his “The Avengers” co-stars aren’t making anything close to that. In fact, most of the actors are being paid around $200,000, far less than they would earn on any other movie.
Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth received only a $500,000 pay increase for returning for the “Captain America” and “Thor” sequels. And unlike Downey, the actors will earn only $500,000 more if their movies break the $500 million mark at the box office.
Despite having a contract, Hemsworth considered backing out of “Thor 2,” because he earned $5 million working on “Snow White and the Huntsman” and Marvel isn’t offering anywhere near that, despite the fact that “Thor” and “The Avengers” are massive franchises. Scarlett Johansson is also fed up and isn’t willing to take a pay-cut to return for “The Avengers 2.”
Marvel is known for low salaries and replacing any actor who doesn’t accept the company’s way of doing business. In fact, the studio has already threatened to replace Hemsworth. But Marvel doesn’t want to replace Downey at this point and it seems that the actor is using that leverage to fight for his co-stars by threatening not to return for “Iron Man4” and possibly any other Marvel film unless they all get appropriate pay raises.
See, this is shitty for a number of reasons.
1) Scarlett and Chris both deserve bigger paydays, so they’re definitely not wrong to ask for more. I think RDJ is -always- going to have the biggest because he is probably the only character in Hollywood right now where the actor practically -is- the role and is considered as such. That said, the others definitely need to be getting more money.
2) The problem is, the Avengers have changed -so much- throughout the years that it is incredibly easy to write out both Thor and Black Widow for a sequel. You pretty much -have- to have Iron Man and Captain America, but the rest can be switched out with other team members pretty easily. Especially BW, since she is one of the “lesser known” characters of the franchise (sorry fans, I like her too, but you gotta look at it from an outsider perspective).
3) So if Marvel wants to be cheap? They can be cheap. It’s not right, not even a little bit. But The Avengers was a 1 billion+ grossing movie that garnered a lot of attention, and getting name recognition by being associated with a franchise like that is, in a way, part of the pay package I imagine. After having The Avengers be such a success, as an actor, you probably don’t want to miss out on the sequel, so it makes it that much harder to strong arm Marvel.
Long story short? It makes it -real- shitty for the actors and they’re in a tough spot. They basically have to rely on RDJ fighting for them, or hope that Marvel realizes that audiences -hate- recasts (remember the initial uproar when we went from Terrence Howard to Don Cheadle?), and are attached enough to these initial core characters that it would hurt their film.
But Scarlett is Natasha ;______; YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME ;___;
Captain America and Black Widow!
