Scarlett Johansson talks about the benefits to Captain America's friendship with Black Widow in The Winter Soldier

Oct. 1, 2013by:

Steve Rogers is a good looking man. I mean, in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER he almost got Peggy Carter in the sack only to be frozen in ice for 70 years. Once thawed, he had to battle a race of aliens while bringing a team together to fight for humanity. But, when the hell is the guy going to get laid?

When CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER debuts next year, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson's characters will be close, but how close? Johannson gave a little bit of info on where Black Widow's relationship will be headed with Cap during an interview with Refinery29:

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.

She also stated that CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER will take place two years after the events of THE AVENGERS during which time Black Widow and Rogers have been fighting as agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Could there be a budding romance on the horizon after the events of this film? We know that Emily VanCamp will play Sharon Carter, niece to Peggy Carter, and a love interest to Captain America. Could a love triangle be brewing?

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER also stars Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Toby Jones, and Robert Redford. It hits theaters on April 4, 2014.

Love triangle? What about Hawkeye? Wasn't the implication in Avengers that he and Black Widow had feelings for each other. Seems like a love...square?

Cap gets his V-card punched?

There's no way he got any before he became Captain America, and he was too busy post Super Serum, and getting put on ice, therefore the ol' Cap is still in the V camp. I suspect the experience will be highly underwhelming for Black Widow, or she's going to be giving him on-the-spot lessons ("This is what we call 'foreplay!'").

Of course, the other question is: if Captain America is super strong and Black Widow is an ordinary woman, will the "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex" situation come

Given both Sharon and Peggy Carter will be in this flick....guessing it'll be more of a platonic friendship that grows deeper in a Riggs & Murtaugh, Deniro & Grodin kind of way. Which I'm totally for.

Now, romantic history between Bucky and Black Widow....that'd be interesting...

each bit of news coming out for this film is getting me pumped. Probably my second most anticipated film in phase two, right after GOTG.

2 Years after The Avengers?

Does that mean Iron Man 3 took place 2 years after The Avengers as well? Because with SHIELD having their hands full during TWS, that's really the only good explanation for their conspicuous absence when such a huge threat faced off against Stark. As for this story, if the set photos didn't say enough about Cap and Black Widow's relationship, then these quotes do. This movie looks great so far, just need that trailer!

If SHIELD was around for everything then it would be movies about SHIELD. They weren't in Iron Man 3 simply because it was an Iron Man movie. They didn't need to be there to hold Tonys hand. In the comics they don't show up in every issue of every comic to help save the day. Sometimes the heroes need to work by themselves.

I get that, and that's not what I'm saying at all. But when you go ahead and make a cinematic shared universe, there has to be explanations for why you can't just have the Avengers get together for every movie. Otherwise that's just extremely poor filmmaking and storytelling. Thor is in Asgard again, so that makes sense. Banner just disappeared except for a post-credits sequence, so that's a little unsatisfactory. Cap is obviously working exclusively for SHIELD, which again makes sense.

With SHIELD, the President of the US was kidnapped, what seemed to be a powerful terrorist was threatening the US, Killian obviously had global implications...and SHIELD didn't want to get involved? They'll help Tony out with his Daddy issues in Iron Man 2, easily chase down a random Extremis "superhero" in Agents of SHIELD, but the national security of the US and possibly the globe isn't enough? I'm sorry, that's just not consistent with what we know about the SHIELD organization. IMO, the only way to correct this is for TWS and Iron Man 3 to happen at the same time. The "heroes just need to work by themselves" excuse probably works in the comics, but that can't happen in the movies.

I agree. I don't want to see SHIELD or all of the Avengers in every movie but they need to have planned the universe's series of events to explain their absence. SHIELD would have to be aware of every move the AVENGERS make. Cap, Black Widow, and presumably Hawkeye all work full time for SHIELD. Why wouldn't they just say, "Tony's getting his ass kicked in North Carolina. Jump down there and help him." It needs an explanation, at least a logistics or timeline explanation if not outright

In episode 1 of Agents of Shield they made reference to Extremis being new, so it would seem to take place at the same or shortly after Iron Man 3. Obviously Coulson, or whatever Coulson is, would likely not be on the radar to aid the various Avengers. His not being dead and the manipulation that went along with it would likely piss some people off.

Good for Captain America. It's about time he got some.
