Everyone that is in to the Marvel movies are out of their mind excited for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The film returns Chris Evans as Steve Rogers AKA Captain America in what is being described as political thriller. Steve’s past from his WWII days come back to haunt him when The Winter Soldier shows up, and he’s not sure he cans trust the government agency he works for, S.H.I.E.L.D., anymore.

Scarlett Johansson also returns for this installment into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Black Widow. Like Steve, she finds her self looking at S.H.I.E.L.D. in a new light. “There’s a real kind of Big Brother aspect to this film,” she explained to Total Film Magazine. “All that Cap and Widow know to be true, everything that they trust in, as much as they trust in anything, is sort of ripped out from underneath them in a way that we haven’t seen before. Everything is not as it seems. It’s not so black and white, it’s not so cut and dry, it’s not good versus evil. The stakes are much higher. It brings them closer together because they find themselves in a vulnerable situation and they’re in it together.”

_97819_MediumWhat some thought was missing from The Avengers was the man out of time element for Cap. Johansson says that this will be featured in The Winter Soldier by saying, “With Avengers you got a lot of characters you had to address. With this one you can really focus on Steve adjusting to how things are right now. In that regard you can kind of play with his moral compass.”

Part of the fan appeal to comic book movies is seeing the characters they love in the suits they wear from the comics. Johansson had a lot of screen time in her Black Widow suit in The Avengers, but that may not be the case this time around. “I don’t spend a lot of time in my cat suit in this one,” she said. This time, according to her, she is taking to the streets in a different way.

While we know that she will figure into the events of the movie, it remains to be seen how much Widow will affect the story of the film. Rumblings have it that Marvel could be looking to give her a movie of her own, but with movie planned out from now until 2015 it’s unlikely that is will be anytime soon. However, you can catch Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4th.
