Scarlett Johansson has given a new scoop on the upcoming "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". While doing a promo tour for her other new film "Don Jon", the Black Widow depicter spilled to refinery29 that the sequel would take place two years after the events of "The Avengers".
"This film is in real time," she dished on. "It's been two years since [the characters] appeared, and now both are agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fighting in the streets. We are not superheroes flying side by side. They help each other because we are fighting in a similar way. It's a working relationship."
The "Under the Skin" starlet went on to explain how her on-screen romance with the Cap, which was revealed in set pictures early this summer, started. "By a series of unfortunate encounters, they will be in a situation in which their friendship becomes more intimate," so she explained.
"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."
Chris Evans will be back as the titular hero, Sebastian Stan is tapped to play the main baddie, and the likes of Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and Emily VanCamp join in supporting roles. The movie will open in theaters nationwide April 4, 2014.
To prepare for his character, the Cap's World War buddy who's brainwashed into becoming an assassin in the present day, Stan said, "I dove into the whole cold war thing. I looked at the KGB. I looked at all kinds of spy movies, and all kinds of documentaries about that time, and what it was about. I grabbed anything from that time period. Anything about brainwashing."
