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?
