Scarlett Johansson will return as Black Widow in Captain America: Civil War

02.16.2015

On top of Robert Downey Jr's comments on the development of Tony Stark in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, we now have confirmation regarding the return of another Avenger for the trilogy capper to the Steve Rogers saga. SlashFilm conducted an interview with directors Joe and Anthony Russo who confirmed we will see Scarlet Johansson return as Black Widow.

If you are like me, you likely assumed that the former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent would appear in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR simply based on how significant she was to CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. But, with the addition of Black Panther and Iron Man to the film as well as the recent news that Spider-man would appear as well, the movie is starting to look more like AVENGERS 2.5 than a CAPTAIN AMERICA film. Will Johansson have a significant role or will she be relegated to a sideline player?

It seems like the lines are blurring between character-centric superhero movies and these cross-over event films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With the CIVIL WAR storyline still unknown to us, we will have to assume sides will be drawn and established characters like Black Widow, Falcon, and The Winter Soldier himself will play a part in the Tony vs Steve face-off.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR opens on May 6, 2016.

I'm always up for more Scarlett Johansson

but I'm still surprised that Marvel still hasn't scheduled a Black Widow solo movie. Given Johansson star power, Marvel needs to act on that fast.

What a shock!

Who else will be returning? Is Captain America going to return too?
Just kidding.
I look forward to admiring her fine ass once again when action scenes become difficult to follow amongst all the shaky cameras and quick edits especially during night fighting scenes just like in "Winter Solider" .

It won't make or break the movie for me...but can her hair be like that...rather than the short style she goes for in the Avengers' movie? :o) As for the overcrowded worry - Winter Soldier was pretty overcrowded...with each character, no matter how small, getting a good moment or two (Rumlow's tense standoff in the launch room was fun as was the fight with Wilson or Redford's meetings with the council). I'm not too worried about this so long as I get my fill of Rodgers having moments like

I feel exactly the same way. Civil War is really more of an Avengers story than Captain America. This new film has more Avengers than the first Avengers movie (Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon, Black Panther, Spider-man, and Hawkeye). I'm looking forward to the film, but since this is likely Evans last solo film, I would have liked to get one more solo Captain America film.

ShonK is just a plain straight hater

Since IRON MAN 2, Black Widow has been the most recurring, consistent, and significant character. i would say even more so than Nick Fury. So when i here people like Shonk (What kind of name is that anyway) say stupid shit like he did below, i can only come to the conclusion that he is a HE-MAN WOMEN HATER.

Even though it was assumed that she would be back, I guess it's good to have confirmation.

I just hope they don't overcrowd the film too much like they did with Iron Man 2.

Iron Man 2 sucked, but how the hell was it overcrowded?

The problem with Iron Man 2 was that they started filming with an unfinished script. Normally this would not be a problem but the writer's strike made it impossible to have a writer on the set to make changes to the script on the fly. Robert Downy Junior was able to ad lib, as always, but he couldn't fix the plot which, unfortunately, didn't make a lot of sense. The biggest problem was that there was no explanation as to how Stark's father was able to come up with a new element that could

The biggest problem was that there was no explanation as to how Stark's father was able to come up with a new element that could save his life when there was no way that he could have predicted that Stark would have needed a device to keep shrapnel out of his heart in the first place. That was the biggest problem with the film. It could have been a lot worse, all things considered.
