If you've seen Black Widow, you already know that one of the most impactful and intense moments of the film actually comes near the beginning.
I'm talking about the opening credits, which show young Yelena and Natasha, along with other young girls, being separated and brought to the Red Room.
The credits, which go on to show girls being cycled through the Red Room training, some being tested on and dying, and then going on to become assasins, are extremely haunting and dark, especially for a Marvel film.
People really loved the opening credits, calling them "some of the best and darkest I've ever seen."
Others say they'd watch a whole film just on the credits, which...same.
They also said it elevated it above most of the other Marvel movies...
...And that no one could outdo them.
Seriously. They're a masterpiece.
But let's break down why people love the credits so much!
First of all, in an inspired soundtrack choice, the credits are backed by Malia J's cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," which is a haunting rendition of the classic song.
Like, it's not easy to cover a Nirvana song. And Malia J's is somehow better than the original.
