Scarlett Johansson praises ‘Civil War’ script, set-up for ‘Avengers 3’

Scarlett Johansson has hinted that Captain America: Civil War is completely unlike any other Marvel Studios film, a “Pre-Avengers 3 and 4″ if you will.

The actress will reprise her role as the Black Widow alongside Chris Evans as Captain America and Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man in the 2016 film and praised the script while speaking with Collider.

“I have read the script for Civil War,” she said. “You know, the film has a very different feeling than anything of Marvel’s that I’ve read or been a part of before.”

Captain America Civil WarDon’t fret, Marvel will not eliminate the humorous elements: “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 humor 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 subsequently described Captain America: Civil War as being a setup for Avengers: Infinity War (part 1 and 2)

“I’m excited to work with [director] the Russos again,” she said. “They have a very different approach to this universe than 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.

“But they were also dealing with far less characters, the stakes were just different. Now with Civil War, it’s gonna be interesting to see how they set up this next phase, I think Cap 3 is definitely sort of like a pre-Avengers 3 and 4
It feels like that, whereas Cap 2 didn’t feel like it was necessarily part of The Avengers. I mean, it feels like a piece that fits in, but it didn’t feel like it was leading you into Avengers 2.”

The third Captain America movie will officially introduce Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is believed to introduce a teen Spider-Man into the Marvel movies.

Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6, 2016.
