Even if it's strange on paper...
SuperHeroHype spoke with Scarlett Johansson at the press junket for Don Jon and talked about the relationship between Black Widow and Captain America in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Below are some highlights.
The movie hits theaters on April 4, 2014.
Johansson on the subtle relationship building between Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff in The Avengers and if Joss Whedon had built that in: "No, actually. Of course in "Avengers" particularly you start to see the relationships forming between these characters, and all of us have very specific relationships with one another. Of course we all know how we feel about one another. We work and all use each other in different ways. We all have very specific opinions about one another. I think that Joss laid the groundwork for a lot of interesting connections. That's why the audiences are so intrigued by that film because they love to see how these characters react to each other that come from completely different universes."
Johansson on why the pairing makes sense: "It does make sense. The pairing is strange on paper, but you'll understand the pairing when you see "Cap 2" and of course Marvel's really good at noticing those connections too! They will continue to build on the different relationships that audiences connect to."
