Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming to DVD and Blu-ray this fall all across the world, but you can pre-order it on Amazon right now. According to a recently posted listing on Amazon's UK website, though, Avengers fans looking to buy either the regular DVD or the 3D Blu-ray will be hard pressed to find Natasha Romanoff (The Black Widow) posing with her male team members on the movie's packaging. Clint Barton (Hawkeye) is also missing from the super-squad, but that's to be expected.*

The Black Widow can't catch a break.

Earlier this year, people took to the internet to decry the conspicuous lack of Black Widow merchandise that was released along with the popular movie. While Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, and Hawkeye (I mean, Hawkeye) were all given the standard-issue action figure treatment, the Black Widow was nearly impossible to find in toy form. (Note: the Black Widow Disney Infinity figurine is fairly common and pretty badass, but she's basically the only one.)

*Hawkeye is actually a very valuable member of the Avengers and is currently starring in an excellent solo comic that you should definitely be reading. If you're into that kind of thing.
