Directing siblings Anthony and Joe Russo, who helmed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, have confirmed Scarlett Johansson will be reprising her role as Black Widow in Captain America: Civil War.
Civil War follows events in this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron directed by Joss Whedon.
“We’ve been preparing for the movie since the last one debuted last year,” said Anthony. “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 [Sebastian Stan] will be back, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man will also be joining us in the next film.”
Expect sparks to fly.
“The new element in this film is that Captain America and Iron Man get into a fight with each other.”
Yes, that could be considered an epic spoiler, but it's direct from the source.
Given the size of the announced cast, Civil War may be on a scale to rival an Avengers movie. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
The movie opens in the UK in April 2016.
