A sniper takes a shot at Natasha Romanoff. Half a world away, a woman with her face steps in front of a train in St. Petersburg. And out in the middle of nowhere in Saskatchewan, Clint Barton comes face to face with a woman who looks just like his old friend - down to the shade of her eyes.
The people who trained her always had a back-up plan. Finally, they’ve perfected their new Black Widow — and her first mission is to kill the others.
ATTENTION FOR A SECOND, YO:
Real talk, this animal (the Ordovician Helmet crab, aka the Horseshoe crab, aka the Atlantic’s most at-risk shelled animal) is of a species that is close to 450 million years old. They are considered endangered, and often wash up on the shores of Long Island (this big lady crab was at TR park in Oyster Bay)
Note: these animals are often used to extract their blue blood and cure diseases. They help the ocean out big time. And they are one of the longest-surviving species on the planet. They’re washing up and people don’t think to/are scared to save them because of their deceivingly harmless barbs.
Take note, friends. Their barbs are NOT stingers. They cannot hurt you. Their pinchers aren’t pinchers, they’re just little legs that are actually really soft! The barb tail they have is actually what they use to stick into the ocean floor or the sand when waves knock them over or they flip onto their backs by accident. And you can help them out by flipping them back over very quickly and helping them scuttle back into the water if you see them struggling.
This is way important. Just call me the Sarah McLachlan of horseshoe crabs.
how am I gonna be an optimist about this
#oh my god#I can’t handle this gifset#this hurts me on so many levels#she’s under an insane amount of pressure#she’s expected to be perfect#to do the impossible every single time#and unlike Fitz or Skye#she’s supposed to fix PEOPLE#not machines or computer code#when she fails the blood on her hands is very literal#and oh god I need to hug her now
#this is why she puts together a whole history for her undercover role#this is why she prepares for every contingency she can think of for every mission#this is why she takes every failure as a lesson and makes sure she doesn’t make the same mistake twice#because when she makes mistakes#when she misses something#when she’s not fast enough or smart enough or clever enough#people die#and Jemma Simmons refuses to let them#this woman gives me all the feels ok#ALL OF THEM
The toughest thing about the shield was making it believable that [Captain America] could throw this thing, have it bounce off something, then take some guy out and have it come back to him. We tried some practical stuff, where he’s throwing a rubber shield. Nothing worked until we handed it over to Chris Evans, until we said, ‘Okay, we’ve got this shield. It’s this wide, it weighs this much. What would you do? How would you throw it?’ And he came up with some really interesting ways of doing it. He had nothing in his hands, he was just miming the actions. It was basically Chris Evans’ ability to mime throwing and catching the shield that made it work.”
