He just disappeared from the scene completely, to allow the camera to focus on them! So, here are the big questions: Why was it filmed the way it was filmed? Is there a deeper meaning to it? It sure looks as if they have. Not only did The Avengers lay the foundation for a work spouse relationship between Nat and Steve, but there were also hints of romantic interest — remember when he tossed her up with his shield?
His eyes were heart-shaped. There was also, when Steve met Nat for the first time — yes, Bruce was there, too, but when Nat looked back at the two men, it was almost foreshadowing that they would each become significant to her in some personal way … the two men of her future.
The entire film was filled with magical moments. And they kiss — though, for work-related reasons. Instead, they paired Nat with Bruce, in Age of Ultron. First off, why, of all people, would Steve give his blessing to her and Bruce?
When Nat picks her up in her arms, Steve is seen in the shot. These all have to mean something, right? That expectation was at the heart of a lot of fan criticism of Hulk and Widow's relationship.
When addressing his decision, Whedon explained his decision for the direction he took the characters. In a discussion with Empirehe said "I know a lot of people are quite angry about it. Mostly because of Clint, I guess, and sometimes Steve.

Everybody wants what they want. He wanted to dodge the expectation that the two have to be in a relationship to explain their closeness. Whedon said it's more "romantic" that there could be two people who "would die for each other" but aren't romantic partners at all. He dismissed the Hawkeye and Black Widow relationship as both obvious and less interesting as a relationship. He also dismissed the criticisms from fans who saw a romantic link between Cap and Widow from The Winter Soldier, saying that any romance there was never the intent of the team.

For Johansson, the long-awaited meeting between Bruce and Natasha took a heavy toll. After filming their muted reunion in Wakanda, Johansson said "I had such devastation that day, I don't know why. She describes the feeling between Bruce and Black Widow as "Something that should feel so solid, and suddenly doesn't.
Johansson continued to say in the interview that the emotions in the scene reminded her of some events in her own life. The plot of Infinity War was really full to bursting and so there was almost no time to really unpack the relationship more than was given. Especially with the ongoing tension between Bruce Banner's two sides in the movie, Widow might have some role to play. Neither cartoon explored the romance from the MCU. Instead, viewers got to see how Hulk and Widow might work as trusted friends and as frenemies.
On the other hand, in the newer Avengers Assemble cartoon, the two share a trusting relationship. The two work together when the other Avengers are exposed to Gamma Radiation and Hulk out. By the episode's end, Hulk entrusts the device to Black Widow. In other episodes they share time together, with Hulk asking about Black Widow's past. While not the romance of the MCU, it is interesting to see another take on the heroes who share troubled histories.
The relationship caused a big stir among fans, with Joe Russo recently saying "I know it seems to be a generally unpopular choice. You know, you can't win them all. In her previous outings, like Captain America: The Winter Solider, Widow's fighting and espionage skills were front and center. While she did a fair bit of those in Age of Ultron, some writers were concerned about the romanticized role Widow plays in managing The Hulk's anger.

Most agreed, though, that the film didn't develop the reasons for their love in enough detail. The relationship was also seen in a broader context of controversy about female superheroes at the time. Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans made some very off-color comments about Black Widow's romantic connections during the press tour and, at the same time, news broke of a leaked email conversation that was critical of female-led superhero films between Sony's Michael Lynton and Marvel Entertainment Chief Executive Ike Perlmutter.
Scarlett Johansson came on the show to create a trailer for a parody Black Widow movie.
This was no average superhero flick, though, as their trailer was for a stereotypical rom-com.
