Occasionally… a client hires me to recover something they’ve lost. Or something that was stolen from them.

Rooskaya (русская) means Russian. It’s the feminine form of the adjective. When Yelena first confronts Natasha, she’s full of patriot identities:
My name is Yelena Belova. And I am a student from the Red Room in Moscow. You remember it, then? Yes, I thought you would. And yes, it is still active. You are its greatest legend, Natalia Romanova, even though you are no longer truly Russian.
Natasha calls Yelena rooskaya because Yelena says that Natasha is not.

Nicole Perlman's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Screenplay to be Reworked; Marvel Sitting on 'Black Widow' Script? -
Marvel Studios has apparently hired one Chris McCoy to rework Nicole Perlman’s Guardians of the Galaxy screenplay. This isn’t uncommon in Hollywood, and there’s a good chance her name will still appear in the credits, as Zak Penn’s did on The Avengers. From what I can tell, she was probably hired for GotG based on two other screenplays she had written about the American space program (do I sense a potential Captain Carol Marvel screenplay here?). Chris McCoy’s wheelhouse is quirky humor, which is no doubt necessary for a film containing Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
However, this news came with an intriguing tidbit I hadn’t heard before:
He’ll rework a well-regarded draft by Nicole Perlman, who as part of Marvel’s now-defunct writing program so impressed executives with a Black Widow script that she was brought in to work on “Thor.”
So Perlman’s Black Widow script was so impressive they brought her on crew (uncredited) for Thor, and gave her the first crack at a Guardians of the Galaxy script. And The Avengers showed audiences what a badass Natasha is.
So how much longer do we have to wait for a Black Widow movie, Marvel?
There’s been a lot of shit talking about female-led comic books this week, so I went out and got these to show my support.
