SDCC '13: Scarlett Johansson Teases Captain America And Black Widow's "Intimate" Relationship
We've see set photos of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) getting close on the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and now the latter talks more about the relationship which develops in the upcoming sequel.
We've already heard from Captain America: The Winter Soldier directing duo Anthony Russo and Joe Russo about Black Widow questioning where her loyalties lie in the upcoming sequel (you can find that interview HERE), but the actress who plays Natasha Romanoff has now dropped some hints about how things develop between her and the titular character as a result. "Their working relationship becomes a more intimate friendship. They have some unexpected similarities – they both have their guard up, they have trust issues, and they've also both been working for 'the man' for their entire career. Through this unexpected friendship that forms, they both start to question what they want." So, it definitely sounds as if her faith in S.H.I.E.L.D. will be tested at some point; hardly a surprise considering what we've learned from the various set photos and plot details which have found their way online. However, the fact that Black Widow and Captain America become close may not please fans hoping to see the super soldier hook up with Agent 13!
Chris Evans was also asked about Steve Rogers' budding relationship with Natasha, and added: "The relationship with Black Widow is interesting because she's somebody who has always had the ability to compromise her morals, and see things in black and white." He too would go on to seemingly hint at some sort of discord between his character and S.H.I.E.L.D., something which will perhaps lead to Earth's Mightiest Heroes severing their connections with them in Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron. "The first Captain America film is about being given the opportunity to serve. This movie's more about what happens once you're given the opportunity to serve, the ability to give yourself up to that, and the question becomes 'What's right?' In the '40s, it's easy to say 'Nazis are bad'. Today it's a little bit harder to know, who am I serving?" It's not about just doing the right thing, now it's about 'what is the right thing?'" What do you guys think of these comments? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts below!
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" will pick-up where "Marvel’s The Avengers" left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.
