For those worried about whether or not they would see Scarlett Johansson take part in the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR as Black Widow, be assured that she will be there. During The Television Critics Association Press Tour (don't fall asleep, I promise), writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely sat down for an interview and opened up about the major superhero movie sharing details about Johansson’s involvement, as well as Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Howard Stark’s (Dominic Cooper) relationship.

When it comes to telling a story that was written before our MCU, McFeely told IGN:

It’s been on and off the table for a while, let’s put it that way, and it’s a challenge to do it and make sure that all the characters that we’ve established, and everyone’s established in the MCU are serviced and sound correct, right? Because there’s a difference between the characters in Civil War, which was written in 2006, 2007. The MCU doesn’t exist [when it was written]. There isn’t a Robert Downey Jr. or Chris Evans who has helped create the character so we need to make sure that that template gets adjusted and what have you in order to make sure it services these characters and not just sort of rip off their parts and make them look like them.

While many people wondered what shift in tone we might see with Civil War, McFeely says it won’t be anything major:

Every Captain America movie has a genre and Civil War is the musical! No, I think part of the reason for bringing back us and bringing back the [Russo] brothers is because Marvel is very pleased with Winter Soldier aesthetically. I think it’s a really adult movie. It’s very well made and that’s partly the texture of the movie. You can argue it’s the most realistic of the Marvel movies, whatever that is to you. I think it’s fair to say that a Russo brothers movie will stay in that vein.

And what will become of Peggy Carter and Tony Stark’s relationship on screen?

As we have not started shooting, and I’m on my fourth draft of many, that question [of who Peggy was to Tony Stark] has been in and out all over the place so who knows. So many things can shake out but we’ve had conversations and we pitched scenes. Some stay and some don’t. But we saw [Peggy] in Winter Soldier, so we know she’s around.

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo, via an event in Beijing, confirmed Scarlett Johansson’s involvement in the film (from CBM):   

We’ve been preparing for the movie since the last one debuted last year. So, we’ve been working on it for a long time now. We’re very happy how it’s coming along. Captain America 3 is gonna be called Captain America: Civil War and it’s going to star Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson will be back, Winter Soldier [Sebastian Stan] will be back, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man will also be joining us in the next film.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is due in theaters on May 6, 2016.

The Winter Soldier was my favorite marvel movie to date. While Cap is my favorite marvel character, the movie blended 70's political thriller with big action movie flawlessly. It definitely felt more adult than other movies. Avengers might have been the biggest spectacle, because lets face it, what it accomplished was nothing short of a miracle. But Winter Soldier was the better story by far. So I can't be anything other than delighted that the same tone and all the same pieces of the puzzle

Great news. The tone of Winter Soldier is one of the great reasons that sets it apart from the other Marvel films. Sort of how Guardians of the Galaxy always left you with a huge grin and feeling good after watching it.

It would've been nice if they'd saved announcing returning role for...y'know...AFTER Avengers 2 was released? Sigh.

Whedon is going to kill a character not at the very end of the movie but earlier on so that it affects the tone of the movie. He is therefore not going to kill someone who appears prominently in the trailers. Look for someone who appears early in the movie, say in the party scene, but does not appear in the rest of the movie. For the sake of impact, it has to be somebody who has appeared a few times already, say starting with the first Iron Man movie.

@martinphipps Heh, subtle! I think I know who you're referring to, and I honestly hope Whedon doesn't go in that direction. If we're talking about the same individual, it'd be the continuation of a ridiculous cliche' and trope to kill that individual off, simply to motivate the other heroes. Plus, it'd be too similar to the first The Avengers movie with Phil Coulson. (Not to mention in one of the trailers, there's a scene with the Avengers in Stark Tower in the aftermath of the Ultron attack,
