We might not have seen them in action since Civil War but Captain America and Black Widow have been busy. The Avengers: Infinity War Prelude comics revealed that they have decided to stop terrorists and other troubles in secret, showing that they'll keep fighting the good fight. It turns out that these adventures have taken their toll on the heroes and it will show during Infinity War.
Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson spoke with iO9 about how stopping these crimes without getting recognized by society or any support from a large organization, making things difficult. Of course, things start escalating when Thanos and The Black Order show up, so Cap, Widow, Falcon, and the others will have to play well with T'Challa, War Machine, and their other allies.
"They've kind of been flying under the radar but still taking care of business in the way they know how to do. I think when you're sort of fighting for something that you know is important, but is not being really recognized or supported by a larger organization or even like, society as a whole, I think it takes a certain toll, and you can get feelings about it in a way. So that's kind of where we find them."
What fans really want to see Infinity War, aside from Hawkeye, is the first confrontation between Captain America and Iron Man post-Civil War. Everyone is expecting a lot of tension since Cap prevented Stark from killing Bucky, who had killed Tony's parents under the control of Hydra. Tony and Natasha's relationship has also been strained since she let Steve and Bucky escape.
Evans said that neither he nor Johansson's characters hold grudges, though they probably haven't moved on.
"I don't think either one of us are ones to hold grudges. I think we operate very binary, [have a] utilitarian approach to most things we do, and I don't think we let emotion dictate our reality. It's been a couple years, so I think we both, to some degree, not moved on, but maybe buried some things."
Avengers: Infinity War comes out on April 27.
