Recently speaking to MTV, Scarlett Johansson, aka Marvel’s cinematic Black Widow, has been talking about the character’s upcoming appearance in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER.
In terms of how long after the ‘Battle of New York’ the film will be set, the actress said, “The film is in real time. It’s been two years since Black Widow and Captain America appeared, and now both are agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fighting in the streets. We are not superheroes flying side by side. They help each other because we are fighting in a similar way. It’s a working relationship.”
Elaborating on the relationship between Cap and Black Widow, Johansson added, “By a series of unfortunate encounters, they will be in a situation in which their friendship becomes more intimate. They share many similarities because they live on the defensive without relying on anyone. Also, the two have been working for the government throughout their professional careers. With their friendship, they begin to question what they want and what is their true identity.”
In terms of plot, the official line on the film is:
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER finds Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, DC and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk.
Joining forces with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon (Anthony Mackie). However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy – the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
At present, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is set for a 4th April, 2014 release.
