In the wake of Captain America: Civil War, the team is all but fractured-but when Avengers: Infinity War rolls around, they’ll have to put aside their differences and prot cr the planet from the Mad Titan, Thanos.
And what has Captain America and his faction of rogue Avengers been up to? Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) fills us in:
“Our characters have been part of some counterterrorism efforts, but we’re flying under the radar. It’s a lot. When you are on these kinds of missions with no governmental support. You don’t really have the support of even the general public and you’re sort of running rogue, trying to do what you know is best for the common man but you don’t have someone to guide you. There have been a lot of changes that have gone on since the original Avengers assembled, reluctantly.”

Chris Evans (Captain America) further weighs in on the dynamic between Rogers and Romanoff:
“I think there’s a functionality there. There’s a void that they each fill for each other, and I think they’ve each kind of had to face a little bit of, like, a destruction of a belief system along the way. They’ve each leaned on one another for different reasons. I think in a lot of ways Cap certainly looks up to Black Widow. She’s always been a little wiser, a little more experienced, a little more callused in the way the world really is…I think in the past couple of years, before we pick up in this film, they’ve really kind of become this rock for one another.”
