Scarlett Johansson to Appear in Captain America Sequel

BLACK WIDOW (Scarlett Johansson)

Black Widow is back ... though she still isn't getting her own movie. Instead, Deadline reports that Scarlett Johansson's superheroine, fresh off the success of The Avengers, will appear opposite Chris Evans in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. She's not the love interest, though: Five other actresses are testing for that role, including Emelia Clarke from Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay, and Alison Brie. Could the directors — Joe and Anthony Russo, who executive produced Community — help give Brie the edge?
