We already know that Captain America: Civil War will feature the return of several key players from last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, both in front of and behind the camera. Naturally, Chris Evans will be back as Captain America himself alongside Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) and Frank Grillo (Crossbones), with new casting additions Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther). Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will also be back with directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. During a recent press event in Beijing, Anthony Russo confirmed that Scarlett Johansson will also be back as the Black Widow.
"We've been preparing for the movie since the 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 will be back, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man will also be joining us in the next film."
This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, since Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow played a prominent role Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but this is the first confirmation we have for the character in Captain America: Civil War. Daniel Brühl also signed on in November for an unidentified role, which many are speculating is the primary villain, although that has yet to be confirmed.
