The Winter Soldier Scene That Scarlett Johansson Suggested Be Cut From the Film

We’re betting there’s more than one deleted scene from Winter Soldier, five minutes of them, in fact. But according to the co-directors of the film, one Black Widow-heavy scene was cut on the suggestion of Scarlett Johansson herself.



Captain America: The Winter Soldier Delivers Big Ideas, Bigger Explosions

Whether punching out Hitler or hanging up his shield, Captain America has always been a barometer for America’s political atmosphere, a reliable gauge for what’s on the minds of the nation. In his latest adventure, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he is again, standing as a voice of reason in a high-octane action drama that concerns itself with the all-too-pertinent debate of freedom versus security. Those who found the first Cap adventure distasteful in its hamminess will be pleased to know that CA:TWS contains nothing of the kind, being a grim-faced thrill ride with no time to talk and no room for cheese. The jokes in Winter Soldier are spare and barely land, a testament to the film’s hard edge. But, unlike some of its dark-and-gritty peers in the superhero genre, a touch of darkness serves this sequel well, working for its covert ops setting instead of against it.

Is the price of knowing SPOILERS a price you’re willing to pay?

Scarlett Johansson & Luc Besson Team Up For The Black Widow Movie We Should Have Already Had [TRAILER]

Ok, so Black Widow doesn’t have powers but this is pretty much how I imagine a Natasha solo film going. Luc Besson is no stranger to creating films with interesting woman (The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita, Léon: The Professional) and this time he’s chosen Scarlett Johansson as his muse. She plays the title role of Lucy in this action-thriller and winds up with special powers after being kidnapped as a drug mule.

Now might I make a suggestion? Everyone go see this film and prove to Marvel Entertainment a Black Widow solo film starring ScarJo needs to be made a priority.

Sorry, Chris Evans fans, but after the actor finally hangs up his shield, whenever that is, he has no intention of returning to the movies… in front of the camera, anyway. I’m gonna go re-watch Sunshine and be sad.
