CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
SuperHeroHype spoke with Scarlett Johansson about her upcoming return as the Black Widow in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and the character’s relationship with Steve Rogers following “The Avengers.”
“In ‘Avengers’ particularly you start to see the relationships forming between these characters, and all of us have very specific relationships with one another,” Johansson told SuperHeroHype. “Of course we all know how we feel about one another. We work and all use each other in different ways. We all have very specific opinions about one another. I think that Joss laid the groundwork for a lot of interesting connections. That’s why the audiences are so intrigued by that film because they love to see how these characters react to each other that come from completely different universes. … The pairing [of Captain America and Black Widow] is strange on paper, but you’ll understand the pairing when you see ‘Cap 2’ and of course Marvel’s really good at noticing those connections too! They will continue to build on the different relationships that audiences connect to.”

THOR: THE DARK WORLD
“Thor: The Dark World” actress Kat Dennings spoke with The Press Telegram about her return to the role of Darcy Lewis, Jane Foster’s assistant.
“Darcy’s a political science major who’s interning with Jane for credit,” explains Dennings, the star of the TV sitcom “2 Broke Girls.” “She’s really bad at real science in this first movie. In the second movie, she’s more interested, but she still doesn’t know anything about it. She loves Jane, she really wants Jane and Thor to be together. It’s almost like her own little soap opera that she watches. Darcy does many amazing things, the content of which I will probably get snipered if I reveal, but there are a lot of awesome sequences involving Darcy that I think fans of the movie will be excited to see — and that I, as a fan, was spoiled to be doing. You’ll see Darcy as you’ve never seen her before.”
Additionally, two new character posters for the film have been released that feature Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
