Are Captain America and Black Widow sharing a romantic moment in these set photos from The Winter Soldier?
Steve Rogers true love was Peggy Carter in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, just as she was in the comic books. With the time jump, that romantic focus will be shifting to Sharon Carter (aka Agent 13), Peggy's niece. But, some surprising new set photos have popped up that may indicate a love triangle in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER.
As we know, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is going for more of a 1970s conspiracy thriller feel and will deal with Cap adjusting to his 21st century surroundings. Part of the missions he goes on will likely have him and fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Natasha Romanoff working undercover. These new photos show Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans in civilian attire on an escalator at what appears to be a mall. Scarlett is wearing some very un-Widow like clothes and Evans is sporting glasses and sideburns that do not look like anything else Captain America would wear. The images could be a snapshot of the two pretending to be a couple for some sort of mission, or could this be the start of something more?
There have been instances in Captain America history, specifically the animated film NEXT AVENGERS: HEROES OF TOMORROW, where a romance between Black Widow and Cap leads to a child. It would certainly add something new to the film, but we are just making assumptions here.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, Toby Jones, Hayley Atwell, and Robert Redford hits on April 4, 2014.
