Scarlett Johansson Talks About Captain America: Civil War
Scarlett Johansson revealed in an interview at the Avengers: Age of Ultron press day about Captain America: Civil War and some psychosomatic twists yet to come.
Black Widow is one character that has become fan favorite over the installments and one of the few Avengers who do not have a standalone film, despite all the fan following.
Johansson told Collider that after reading the script for Captain America 3, she realized that it is nothing like the previous installments in the Avenger series or of Cap America.
“I have read the script for Civil War, you know, the film has a very different feeling than anything of Marvel’s that I’ve read or been a part of before. These films are – I don’t think darker is the right word because there’s definitely always going to be some kind of levity, and that comes in a form of humour or hope. When you compare these films to like Batman, it’s a different feeling obviously, it’s a different audience experience, but as the stakes loom like larger and larger I think these films are kind of maturing with the audience; so there’s even more complex psychological twists that I sort of hadn’t necessarily anticipated.”
Johansson further added that she is excited to work with the dynamic duo (Russo brother), their perception of the movies are a different than Whedon’s but nonetheless that is what makes Cap America 3 different from the rest.
“I’m excited to work with [director] the Russos again. They have a very different approach to this universe than [Avengers: Age of Ultron director] Joss [Whedon], just different. It will be interesting to see how they treat all of these new characters. When we were doing Cap 2, the film felt very much like we were doing a kind of ’70s style car-chase political-thriller, it had that kind of flavor.”
Scarlett Johansson mentioned that Captain America: Civil War is like a prequel to Avengers 3 and 4; it officially sets the storyline and the origin of events taking place in the third and fourth part of The Avengers.
She also said that if Joss Whedon will direct Black Widow standalone movie only then she will say yes to a feature film.
Captain America: Civil War premieres on 6 May 2016.
