Marvel's The Avengers stars Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans reprise their roles as The Black Widow and Steve Rogers/Captain America in Marvel's upcoming Phase Two sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier. These Avengers must team up to stop Cap's former friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who is now the villainous Winter Soldier, but there is a lot more going on in this new adventure than meets the eye.
During a recent interview with Total Film, Scarlett Johansson revealed that fans won't get to see her in that infamous catsuit nearly as much in this follow-up, while teasing that everything Black Widow and Captain America believe in are ripped away from them.
"I don't spend a lot of time in my catsuit in this one. I take it to the streets in a different way, There's a real kind of Big Brother aspect to this film. All that Cap and Widow know to be true, everything that they trust in - as much as they trust in anything - is sort of ripped out from underneath them in a way that we haven't seen before. Everything is not as it seems. It's not so black and white, it's not so cut and dry, it's not good versus evil. The stakes are much higher. It brings them closer together because they find themselves in a vulnerable situation and they're in it together."
Of course, we've seen in the trailers and the character poster from last month that Black Widow will be seen in the catsuit at times, but, apparently, not nearly as much as her previous Marvel offerings.
Chris Evans also talked about the progression of his character, from 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, to the 2012 ensemble Marvel's The Avengers, to this sequel, which explores Steve Rogers' moral compass.
"With the first one you were establishing the character. With Avengers you got a lot of characters you had to address. With this one you can really focus on Steve adjusting to how things are right now. In that regard you can kind of play with his moral compass."
