Marvel India’s quirky take on 'Black Widow' poster

On February 18, 2020, Marvel India took to its official Twitter handle and posted a Black Widow poster. Marvel India had their own quirky take on the poster. It had a line from a famous Hindi song, ‘Kisi ke haath na aayegi yeh ladki’, which is from a 1989 drama flick Chaalbaaz

In the film, Sridevi is seen in a double role, and one of her characters is portrayed as a strong and independent woman, who is seen defining gender norms.
