Black Widow Confirmed For Captain America: Civil War, Along With Some Other Awesome Marvel Characters
"Now give me a solo movie."
As much as we’d love to see Natasha Romanoff kicking all kinds of butt in her own feature-length film, you’ve got to admit: it sure is nice to see her getting another opportunity to steal the spotlight in somebody else’s movie. But she’s not the only one who’s been confirmed.
Comic Book Resources is reporting that during a press event in Beijing today, the Russo Brothers fielded questions about what we can expect for the Phase 3 Marvel movie:
“We’ve been preparing for the movie since the one debuted last year,” said Anthony Russo. “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 going to be called ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and it’s going to star Chris Evans as Captain America, 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.”
Yup, Sebastian Stan too! We figured—as we did with Black Widow, naturally—but it hadn’t been confirmed yet. Now it is. Hooray!
We also know Chadwick Boseman will also put on his Black Panther suit for the film, and Anthony Mackie recently confirmed that the Falcon will return as well, even going so far as to drop a few shooting locations on us. Plus, Inglorious Basterds actor Daniel Brühl has been cast in an undisclosed role, possibly as the film’s villain. Man, I’d be worried about so many awesome characters trying to share the screen with each other if Marvel haven’t pulled off that feat more than a couple of times already.
Anyway, that’s all we need, right? We’re not missing anybody? Nobody—
Whoops. Sorry, Barton. Guess we’ll find out if you’re going to make it in any more movies some other time.
