Insight on What Captain America and Black Widow Have Been Doing Between CIVIL WAR and INFINITY WAR
For those of you who have been wondering what Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) have been doing between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, we have some insight. That insight comes from Evans and Johansson during an interview with ComingSoon. Evans starts off by saying:
"I’ve dropped the shield. I kind of went rogue a little bit. But again, I think it’s in his nature to be of service, and I think to some degree in order to maintain sanity, he had to kind of function within a system. That’s how his brain works, there has to be some kind of functioning factory that he can operate within. I think Black Widow to some degree probably has a similar output."
Johansson goes on to reveals that Black Widow has been by caps side this whole time. Apparently, they've been out together on missions around the world kicking some ass and making the world a better place on their own terms.
"I think they’ve kind of been sort of flying under the radar but still taking care of business in the way that they know how to do. And I think when we find them in this film, they are just a fine, well-oiled machine. They sort of have a seamless communication between them. But they’re more hardened."
She goes on to reveal that as they are doing this, they are starting to feel unappreciated in a world where no one knows they’re out there helping.
"Not that they need to have any sort of back-patting or recognition exactly, but I think when you’re fighting for something that you know is important but is not being really recognized or supported by a larger organization or even society as a whole, I think that it takes a certain toll, and you can get feelings about it in a way. So that’s kind of where we find them."
With the two characters spending so much time together, there's no doubt that they've formed even more of a bond, but Evans explains that their relationships are strictly Platonic:
"Every single movie, he learns a little bit more that the world isn’t the way he kind of wants it to be, and I think that’s why there’s a connection between him and Black Widow. Black Widow has seen a lot more than he has, and is kind of a little more calloused, and I think in a lot of ways, he looks up to that and learns from that… I think we leaned on each other, especially in the face of that kind of loss coming off of ‘Civil War.’ And so he’s been running these missions, answering to nobody, really. I mean, it really is the sign of a broken person. That’s the wear and tear."
I've really enjoyed seeing these two characters grow together of the course of the MCU films, but with the events that will take place in Avengers: Infinity War, that all may very well come to an end if Thanos snaps his fingers.
I would actually be interested in seeing the adventures that Captain America and Black Widow embarked on together. That would make a great series!
