    You mean Robert Downey Jr. Morton Downey was the talk show host.



    There were a bunch of great lines (what do you expect from Joss Whedon?).

    Loki: Enough! You are, all of you are beneath me! I am a god, you dull creature, and I will not be bullied by...
    [Hulk flattens Loki with repeated smashes into the floor]
    The Hulk: Puny god. (Loki's expression was priceless)

    Agent Phil Coulson: So that's what it does.


    Tony Stark: That man is playing Galaga! Thought we wouldn't notice. But we did.
    (and, when they cut back to the guy, he is, in fact, playing Galaga!)


    Loki: How will your friends have time for me, when they're so busy fighting you?
    [taps Stark with his scepter... nothing happens]
    Loki: [tries again, with no success] This usually works...
    Tony Stark: Well, performance issues, it's not uncommon. One out of five...


    Funny, funny stuff.

    Damn i always get his name mixed up but IMHO they couldn't have found a better actor to play Tony Stark.

    Actually Natalia "The Black Widow" Romanova has quite a few abilities that were not shown in the movie...

    Powers and abilities

    The Black Widow is a world class athlete, gymnast, acrobat, aerialist capable of numerous complex maneuvers and feats, expert martial artist (including karate, judo, ninjutsu, aikido, savate, various styles of kung fu, and boxing), marksman, and weapons specialist as well as having extensive espionage training. She is also an accomplished ballerina.

    Natasha has received the Red Room's variant of the Super-Soldier Serum. As a result, her physical and mental abilities had been enhanced slightly beyond human limits.

    The Black Widow has been enhanced by biotechnology that makes her body resistant to aging and disease and heals at an above human rate as well as psychological conditioning that suppresses her memory of true events as opposed to implanted ones of the past without the aid of specially designed system suppressant drugs.

    The Soviet experimentation has rendered her body infertile.

    Due to the Super-Soldier Serum, the white blood cells in her body are efficient enough to fight off any microbe, foreign body and others from her body, keeping her healthy and immune to most, if not all infections, diseases and disorders. Also, it takes quite a bit for Natasha to become intoxicated.

    Her agility is greater than that of an Olympic gold medalist. She can coordinate her body with balance, flexibility, and dexterity easily.

    Her bodily tissues have been augmented to superhuman development. She possesses exceptional durability, strength, endurance, and stamina.

    Natasha's reaction time is similarly enhanced and functions with the peak of human efficiency and capability, bordering on superhuman level. It is possible for Natasha to dodge a bullet even at point blank range.

    Natasha has a gifted intellect. She displays an uncanny affinity for psychological manipulation and can mask her real emotions perfectly. Like Steve Rogers, she possesses the ability to quickly process multiple information streams (e.g., threat assessment) and rapidly respond to changing tactical situations.

    Natasha is an expert tactician. She is a very effective strategist, tactician, and field commander. She has led the Avengers and even S.H.I.E.L.D. on one occasion.

    Within 2010's Black Widow: Deadly Origin miniseries, another level to the Biotechnology is that Natasha has been subjected to wear "nanites", designed to be passed from her body with even the slightest touch.[volume & issue needed] These nanites were a part of something called the "Icepick Protocol" and when activated could incite someone to homicidal rage. A counter form of these were also introduced to her body so as she could neutralize the activated nanites in another.

    Equipment

    The Black Widow uses a variety of equipment invented by Soviet scientists and technicians, with later improvements by S.H.I.E.L.D. scientists and technicians. She usually wears distinctively shaped bracelets which fire the Widow's Bite electro-static energy blasts that can deliver charges up to 30,000 volts, as well as "Widow's Line" grappling hooks, tear gas pellets, along with a new element introduced during her ongoing series during the "Kiss or Kill" arc called the "Widow's Kiss"; an aerosol instant knock-out gas she has modified. She wears a belt of metallic discs, some with disc-charges containing plastic explosives, others have been shown to be compartments to house other equipment. Her costume consists of synthetic stretch fabric equipped with micro-suction cups on fingers and feet, enabling her to adhere to walls and ceilings. In the 2006 "Homecoming" mini-series, she was seen using knives, unarmed combat, and various firearms, but she has since begun using her bracelets again. While in disguise as Yelena Bolova when infiltrating the then Osborn-sanctioned Thunderbolts during "Dark Reign" she used a special multi-lens goggle/head-carapace that demonstrated various technical abilities enhancing vision and communication. Later, she has used a modified gun based on her Widow's Bite wrist cartridge, during her adventures alongside the new Captain America.

    At the risk of my heterosexual cred, I found her to be the weakest thing in the movie. She's hot, but she's just not that good an actress and she's always struck me as vaccuous. The Black Widow should be sultry and sophisticated, but Johanson just came across as an American girl who couldn't be bothered to even try to fake the accent. They should have gotten someone like Monica Belluci.
