"Cap and Natasha develop something of an intimate friendship in this movie. They both fight on the ground, because they can’t fly. They have a similar fighting style. They both have their guard up, they both have trust issues. And they’ve both been working for ‘The Man’ for so long. It’s a complex relationship."
"How integral is Natasha to the story? Johansson: “Integral.” Feige: “She and Cap really share this film.” Johansson, “She and Cap now have this relationship that they’ve built. It’s an opportunity to see how she is in a more casual working relationship with somebody. It breaks down the barriers that she’s put up. You learn more about her each time.” She promises the “film is gritty, down, dirty knuckle fighting. A lot of action in this one."

Evans asked. “I think in the ’40s it was a lot easier to say, ‘We know Nazis are bad.’ I think it’s a bit harder to know who’s right and who’s wrong today. I think that conflict that Steve’s going through in the movie couldn’t be more updated and more modern. What’s right? Where’s the line? Where do you draw it? It’s so tricky, I wish I could tell you more."
